A Fisheye is useful for shooting people since it does not distort their features like a rectiliear will.


Correct, Fisheyes do not distort perspective, but they do curve lines around the edges. Rectilinears distort perspective (stretch near the edges), but do not curve lines.

People will often look better near the edge of a frame using a fisheye than a wide rectilinear.

be what it may - light, shade, and perspective will always make it
beautiful. - John Constable (quote)
