The Myth of Equivalent Focal Length

Khai Nguyen, EPSA, SPSA Many photographers misunderstand that the focal length of a lens mounted on a crop camera would effectively be extended by a crop factor. For this reason, they think they can reach subjects at a further distance and make the images larger. This article will disprove this myth once and for all.

Interview with Dorte Verner

By Mary Ongwen On a cool Monday afternoon, the MC building gives the impression that staff are either on leave or shaking off Monday blues. Not so for Dorte. I walk into her office and she’s in the middle of compiling a report while connected with staff in different time zones. I promise to keep the interview brief. Dorte Verner is Lead Agricultural Economist with the World Bank in the Food and Agriculture Global Practice (GFA). She is also a brilliant photographer and a member of the IMF/World Bank International Photographic Society Club (IPS). Most recently Dorte’s photo of a Moken fisher man won the most popular photo entry for…
