  • When is Trump going to take a picture with living former presidents?

    Best answer: well he was seated next to them (on camera) during Bush 41's funeral.

    It wasn't a still photograph but a video footage.
    isn't that close enough?

    why don't you play the video footage and take a still snapshot of it. there you go!

  • What are some methods to distort/ruin a polaroid?

    It's for this short story I'm working on. A polaroid has to get ruined, but it's at a crime scene that's already been set up, so the person who destroys the picture is trying not to contaminate evidence.

  • Why do old footages seem to be sped up?

    Best answer: The hand cranking of the early camera was usually done at approximately 16 frames per second. When those films are shown on 24 fps equipment everything appears to go too fast.

    Many early special effects (especially those by Buster Keaton) were done directly within the camera. Changing the speed of the cranking could give results deliberately showing fast or slow motion. Here's an example, with discussion:

    Best answer: The reason people take photos of their reflection instead of just pointing the smartphone (let's face it, they're not using real cameras) is because the type of lens used in all smartphones.

    Smartphones use a wide-angle lens (i.e. short focal length lens). These lenses produce a great amount of distortion which gets worse as the 1) the focal length decreases, and 2) as the lens gets closer to the subject. This is why people look so ugly in photos taken with smartphones. You can see how an otherwise attractive person can be made to look prettier or uglier simply by using a different focal length: http://www.stepheneastwood.com/tutorials... For reference, smartphones use an equivalent focal length of about 24mm~28mm.

    So why the mirror. People take a photo of their reflection because the distortion only affects three-dimensional objects and not reflections in the mirror. Plus they can stand further back from the mirror and get more of themselves in the shot. But the primary reason to take a photo of one's reflection in a mirror is to avoid the dreaded and uglifying wide-angle distortion.
