I have a narrow face and feel this may negatively affect my streaming captures, especially with poor quality cameras, low lenses, poor sensors, etc.
Are there any givens in getting a robust, wider-like frame that can give an illusion of a more stretched object? Certain camera sensors, lenses, distances, positioning, mm or something else?
There is a popular GIF of a guy who took different photos of his face with different mms or something and the difference is pretty significant, going from more narrow to wider faced depending on some factors.
What can help ensure photo or video quality to maximize broadening of an object as opposed to poorer appearances like close up smartphone selfies that create a Slenderman like look to the face, whereas farther away photos normalize the face more I think.
Any and all potential things would be appreciated. I already know distance helps but what can amplify this in less optimal settings, or just amplify widening overall, going all out with lenses, camera resolutions, lighting, angles, etc. I almost always look bad in close up photos and videos on my smartphone but some fewer cameras have produced more desirable captures of myself, unfortunately with me not knowing the specs or remembering the cameras.
Any out of the box camera or lens recommendations and some parameters to experiment with? Software, filters, sensors, or any other add-on or post processing touches?
