      Hi Mr. Deakins,


      I have several questions on focal lengths. You have mentioned on several YouTube videos that choices on focal lengths should mostly depend on what the cinematographer feels like using. Therefore, I am a little curious if you have a set of rules for yourself for choosing focal lengths that you have never or rarely broken. In other words, how do the characteristics of different focal lengths shape your habits in utilizing them? Moreover, in what ways do you think the focal lengths can impact the audience?


      Thank you very much!
