Psychological effect of lenses (2 replies and 1 comment)
My name is Ian Crabb, a writer/director from Columbus, Georgia USA.
For sure lenses create a different feeling. Long lenses are, by definition, more 'observational' but the images can be more romantic, which is the product of the shallow depth of field and the soft focus backgrounds. We shot 'Fargo' on slightly longer lenses than had been done on other of the Coen's films because we wanted a slightly more 'matter of fact' look, not exactly reportage but in that direction.
