Photographer Explains Why Camera Makes You 10 Lbs Fatter
Have you heard the expression that the camera adds 10 pounds? Well, there might be some truth in it, and photographer Dan Vojtech just did a photo series to explain how that works.
Dan shot 9 portraits using lenses of different focal lengths – 20mm, 24mm, 28mm, 35mm, 50mm, 70mm, 105mm, 150mm, and 200mm – and stacked the results in a GIF.
“[It’s] amazing how focal length affects the shape of the face,” writes Dan. And as you’ll see below, there is a remarkable difference between 20mm and 200mm shots. If you can’t decide what works best, it’s considered that for the portrait photography, a good focal length is between 85mm to 135mm.
So if your subject is sensitive about his/her weight, make sure you pick the right lens for the photoshoot, or it could get real messy…
