Re: Watch this video -- Effects focal length has on the face

it is not the focal length that cause the distortion, but rather it is the distance of the camera from the subject that is crucial.

if you get to close then the face is distorted (long nose etc).

so don't get to close to your subject, then everything is fine.. and if you don't like the surroundings - crop!
