question

Can I use this lens in wedding photography?
Asked by: Rudro S.
Yes, you can certainly use the XF 23mm lens for wedding photography, especially if youre using it like you would for street photography where youre trying to capture part of the environment surrounding the subject(s) that youre taking pictures of. The 23mm can indeed be used for portraits, provided that you avoid getting too close to whoever youre trying to photograph, since even modest wide angle lenses can cause some unflattering facial distortions to occur.
