Why do cameras do this?

Someone out there has to know the answer to this!

When you take a picture, how come the object in the picture looks further away than it is in real life? I can take a picture of DD playing just 10 feet away and yet on the picture itself (digital or print), she looks a good 20 feet away.

Why is this?!?!?!

  • Try cropping the picture with your software.
