View Camera



It is always a good idea to begin from a neutral position with all the camera planes parallel and no camera movements.  In this illustration, the camera has no movements in use and is pointed slightly down to the center of the cube. There is an expected convergence to both the top and bottom of the cube.  We will follow through a sequence of movements and the perspective effects on the cube. Remember, wide angle lenses exaggerate the optical changes.

  We might use this for copying 2 dimensional art works or where all three planes are parallel. We could also use it where the aperture used for the exposure gives the desired depth of field.
