Examples: Beautiful Boulder at Four Focal Lengths (5DS R)

See also the Mt Conness area examples taken at around the same time.

This page has a simple goal: to show the versatility of an ultra wide angle zoom. A slight change in position and the scene changes; zoom in or out and a very different image results. Together with changing light conditions, the possibilities are endless.

As the focal length increases, the angle of view declines, narrowing the background material. These four images give a good sense of just how different a picture can be with minor changes in position and the use of a zoom lens; the perspective changes little but the angle of view changes substantially.

This beautiful boulder and the rapidly varying light caught my eye. I could have shot it for an hour, but time pressed (a boat ride back on Saddlebag Lake).

Diglloyd DAP is DSLR-oriented, but also contains workflow and other topics. Much of the focus is on Canon and Nikon but also Pentax and Pentax medium format.

Special emphasis is placed on lens evaluation, focusing on Canon and Nikon and Sigma lenses, but with a few others like Rokinon/Samyang.

  • Make better images by learning how to get the best results right away.
  • Save money by choosing the right lens for your needs the first time, particularly some of the new Sigma Art lenses vs Nikon and Canon.
  • Workflow discusses image organization, raw conversion and post processing. Many examples show processing parameters for direct insight into how the image was converted.
  • Jaw-dropping image quality found nowhere else utilizing Retina-grade images up to full camera resolution, plus large crops [past 2 years or so].
  • Real world examples with insights found nowhere else. Make sharper images just by understanding lens behavior you won’t read about elsewhere.
  • Aperture series from wide open through stopped down, showing the full range of lens performance and bokeh.
  • Optical quality analysis of field curvature, focus shift, sharpness, flare, distortion, and performance in the field.
