The focal length of your lens will determine how wide or narrow the field of view is of your pictures. You can’t use just one focal length for every shot in your film. This video helps you understand how focal length works as well as explaining the various focal length differences. If you only use a telephoto lens, you won’t be able to get those wide open shots that bring your viewer into the story. But if all you have is a wide angle lens, then peoples’ faces and objects will begin to look distorted when you get in close. This focal length tutorial shows focal length comparisons to help you understand what the best focal length for video is under various circumstances. We hope this video helps give you a baseline on how to choose lens focal lengths for storytelling so that you can better communicate YOUR story with your audience.
