Portraiture (with 35mm film) = 85mm as the ideal for keeping natural face shape shot from the proper distance for head and shoulders shots, 50mm more for full figure, 35mm for groups.

People look best when shot from about 1.5 to 2 metres so choose focal length to get the framing you need from that distance range.
