Hey guys, Ok so a while back I was watching this photography workshop and the instructor claimed he uses his 35mm (so 17.5 in mft) and holds his camera in portrait mode to elongate his subjects and in landscape mode if he is shooting a fitness model for example and wants to make them look bulkier. I just thought it was weird, I always thought compression and distortions were a result of how far you stand from your model and how you posed them . I keep learning new stuff and forgetting the old stuff I learned hehe so I might at one point have known this and have forgotten about it, but now this claim seems strange to me. What do you think? Or was he talking about the distortions like barrel and imperfections in the lens? Which might be different on the different sides of a lens. I know personally I like shooting with wide lenses to make models look more elongated and its true i shoot in in portrait mode but not intentionally, I never gave it much thought as to if I would get the same result if I shot it in landscape. I just assumed it would be the same? I know I could take my camera and do a test shoot haha but I prefer to ask here PS: I did not like that photographer all that much, he said many things that I know for a fact were wrong, so I am thinking this must be another wrong thing from a clueless poser?
