I have read a lot of talk about 50mm lens being normal. I know Dave pointed out Yasujiro Ozu who used that focal length a lot. Hitchcock has too. I’ve seen it described often as “normal” lens in photography discussions but can’t recollect why is it considered normal. It “feels” normal when I look at something from a 50mm lens and then look at that same scene with my eyes. But I can’t put a finger on why that is “normal” vision.
Would you use 50mm, or rather, have there been instances where you you’ve reached for 50mm as a focal length more than 40 or 35 or anything on the wide end of the spectrum?
