Correct Perspective?
1

My old copy of the Manual of Photography (7th Edition, 1978) defines correct perspective as follows:

"Correct perspective is said to be obtained when a print is viewed in such a way that the apparent relation between objects as to their size, position, etc., is the same as in the original scene. This is achieved when the print is viewed at such a distance that it subtends at the eye the same angle as was subtended by the original scene at the lens."

The term correct perspective seems to have largely gone out of use by photographers. I cannot recall seeing it used in recent years.

I am interested to know if anyone here has come across uses of this concept and, if so, where?
