Guys, professional photographers use 105 mm portrait lenses over 50 mm because it compresses people's features and their customers are happier...I'm not saying that it's right or not but...HP just figured out how to do that with a non-fixed lens on a non-SLR. So...if you've ever had professional photographs taken, it is more than likely the same technique was used...food for thought I guess.


That's aggravating! It sort of makes me feel like the pictures of me at my dad's wedding aren't really me, if that makes sense. I'm glad normal cameras aren't like this.


A photographer wouldn't be using a fixed lens at a wedding...so don't worry. They are as you look normally. The situation that a 105 mm lens would be used over a 50 mm lens is in a portrait situation, where you go to the photography studio and sit for pictures. Sorry that you find that aggravating...but it's been that way for many many years.

Thank you for the information. I actually find it a lot less aggravating if it's just in a studio setting for some reason, because I feel like it's a little more expected.

One photographer I know of carefully air brushed all the acne scars and pimples off the brides father. She sent the photos back and was furious as the man in the photos no longer looked like her father and it was the memory of her father being there that she wanted. I think there's a good lesson there.
