    I believe I am having issues identifying “focal length” for each clip. Is that the distance between the camera and the subject?

    Hi Ryan,
    great exercise to work on. I will definitely do this. i´m almost pretty deep into camera and editing work but a critical look over can´t be wrong at all.

    With kind regards
