Thanks for the effort put into this. I think it was controlled well enough to be useful. Your framing from shot to shot was very well managed (far better that I would have the patience to do). BTW, it shows the effect of camera to subject distance on how the face is represented not the effect of focal length. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perspective_distortion_(photography)

I found the effect of flattening of the face at the longer focal lengths/greater distances most interesting. Your framing was done so well that placing the photos side-by-side really pointed out the differences.

Thanks again.
