A 35mm prime on a full format body (or 24mm on cropped) is a great lens to walk around with. But when one gets too close to someone to take a picture, invariably some of their features are exaggerated (noses are popular targets in that regard). Yet, sometimes all you have in a given moment is a wide prime.
Are there any tips and tricks to getting good shots of people, 3/4 portrait or closer say, and still keep them looking good?
Journalists use these lenses all the time, so there must be something to it.
For example, should I avoid putting people too close to the center of the frame?
