Would You Ever Want To Use A Wide Angle Lens To Shoot Portraits???

    Just asking since I've always heard that most photographers when taking portrait photos usually walk further away from the target, and use the optical zoom to get closer. I believe to avoid distortion. And with a wide angle lens you would have to walk closer to the target to get the same shot?

    Just asking cause the new S10 has changed their portrait mode from using the telephoto lens to the wide angle lens, and this seems like a huge mistake?

    what program do you use for photo processing? This is important to me because I am new and I want to start with a simple thing.

    I'd use a wide angle lens for portraits where I wanted to include a lot of the surrounding location (environmental portrait) of for the comedy/weirdness effect from the distortion that wide angle gives when shooting portraits quite close up.

    For a conventional portrait, especially a tight-cropped headshot, I'd use a telephoto lens.
