A lot of people after seeing their favorite tv/film stars attest to being stunned at how different their heights/statures appear to be in person versus what they though they would. They often say the subjects appeared taller/shorter on tv/in film than they did in person. Why do you think they appeared that way to them? So often appear that way to most people?
Is it something about cameras and the way they record ones image? Lenses? The way ones image displays on a tv/movie screen? What have you experienced regarding the previously stated? Do you think people appear taller/shorter on tv/in film than they do in person? If so, why? Have subjects you've filmed appeared that way? If so, why? If not, why not? Subjects someone you know has filmed? Did the person you know have an opinion on the difference? What was it, if any?
