Angle of view on various formats

I’ve probably discussed before the way that different size “sensors” (or pieces of film) need different focal length lenses to achieve the same angle of view. For instance, it is well known that a 50mm lens on an APS-C crop-sensor DSLR behaves a bit like a 75mm lens on a 35mm full-frame camera. I’ve extended […]

Fireworks, you say? These ones were in the churchyard of All Saints, Fishponds. I managed to add some extra interest to the pictures by using a fisheye lens and including part of the church building. However I can’t decide if my favourite is one of the firework pictures, or the long exposure of the bonfire.
