I purchased a good wide angle lense to enable full body shots in very close quarters and to maximize my low light capability by being as close to the model as possible. I can actually shoot a framed doorway from 4 ft away and I love it.

More and more, I see these gigantic zoom lenses pointed at a model that is two steps away from the photographer. I thought that it was just amatures showing off the new lens but even seasoned pros are doing it. What gives?

Because wide angle lenses distort the body and cause you to be right in the model's face making them less comfortable. Long primes don't.

No pro shoots serious portraits with a wide angle.
