I took this at the Quartz Mountain workshop to show a lady why people usually do not take close-up portrait with wide angle [short focal length] lenses. Notice how wide angle lenses distort things close to the cameraâ€”like my nose and the lower portion of my faceâ€”making them appear larger than normal, and how they make things further away appear smaller than normal. A normal lens focal length on our DSLRs that are not full frame cameras would be in the mid twenties like 26mm. A portrait lens is one that is longer than normal. Longer focal length or telephoto lenses eliminate this kind of distortion. See SP with a long focal length lens.
