Santa as a caricature

Santa doesn't seem to mind...

As expected when you shoot this close with this lens, his nose and glasses are bigger than they actually are, relative to the rest of his facial features. This does not mean that we cannot use it to make head shots, we just have to be able to see this in our head to see if the results are desirable or artistic.

The Santa concept itself is a caricature. This image takes advantage of that. Yes, the 12mm can be used for any purpose whatsoever. Some uses are better executed than others, of course.
