Default 12mm for group portraits?

Two good friends and co-workers of mine. Barney(right) the warehouse manager and Bill one of his employees.

believe it or not these guts were good sports and let me take this shot with the 540 flash, standing two ft. away talk about in your face photography!


Strait from camera, only re-sized.

I find that taking pictures of large groups at 12mm sometimes introduces distortion at the edges (sort-of like stretching). I usually try to allow enough on the edges to allow for some processing to correct it. If you aren't too far away, like this picture, you'll avoid it.

Hey Harriet,
You're right of course, this was really meant to be tongue in cheek. most people wouldn't appreciate a flash going off
right in there face!
