I have some questions about the use of a wide-angle lens. I am not new to photography, I know the basics but I haven't experimented with anything other than a basic lens. I have read a bit about wide-angle lenses and it seems that they are suggested for use in portraits. I have always used my regular lens for portraits but I find I have a very small space to work with so I can't get as much of my subject in the picture as I would like. Is a wide-angle lens a good solution to my problem? Will it distort the image? If it does, is there a way around this? I appreciate any help and I apologize in advance if I've placed this question in the wrong spot.
