Before I got into still photography my desire for image making lay more in the world of cinema. One of the defining traits of that look, is the CinemaScope Anamorphic wide format, often called panoramic in the still world there are some subtle differences that are extremely technical and for that reason I won’t go into too much detail here. But I will say this, it is a process that is designed to maximize the imaging area by squishing a wider image on to the sensor/film but only horizontally and then for final output the image is desqueezed. This results in an image that is much wider than it is tall without cropping and the loss of resolution that comes with that crop. These images in particular are shot on a variety of cameras but utilizing a vintage anamorphic projector lens to achieve the desired effect.
