I swear I'm not lying!

Of course I would, because in order to see it in the picture as it was in reality, we have to adapt the view offered by the camera to what our eyes are used to seeing.


World Senior Athletics Championships. Who would have thought they were still so fast?


The camera doesn't see it that way. What is recorded on a memory card or film bears no relation to what we humans see (or how our brains map it, but to be precise would be a long way off, let's just leave it at that). 

To resolve this contradiction, planning is needed at the time of recording, and a lot of post-production and skill later on. 

But isn't it worth it?


In Leonardo di Caprio's movie, the houses were curved like this.

But I didn't have the design software from the film, so I had to choose the location (Anker köz in Budapest) and the right lens (super wide angle).

The result? I aimed the camera so high that the girls didn't even notice they were in the frame.


A paraphrase of the central scene in Russell Crowe's 2000 movie, replacing the grain field with a rapeseed field.
