A Word A Week Challenge – Zoom


When people think of zoom, what they’re usually thinking of is a long focal length (FL) – and on lenses with adjustable focal lengths (what most people call zoom lenses) this makes some sense.  But it’s a relative term – you can have very wide angled lenses that are technically zooms, because they let you adjust the FL.

Here’s a picture I took with a 50mm fixed focal length lens –  but it’s equivalent in 35mm ‘Full Frame’ photography to 100mm, which is very much in the range of what people think of as a zoom.

I was actually using this lens because I needed the wide aperture of f/2 as flash photography was not allowed even though the lighting wasn’t great inside.

This is the alter of the Mesquite Cathedral in Cordoba, Spain.
