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 camera—like my nose and the lower portion of my face—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.
