I have a critical piece of advice here for hobbyist photographers.
Let’s say that you want to take some pictures of your wife in the full convexity of late pregnancy. Not unreasonable, you might say! And let’s say for the sake of argument that you have a selection of camera lenses available to you. If so, listen up: two things here are important.
The first is that the wide-angle lens should probably stay in the bag. But failing that, at no point should you tell your wife that you “need the wide-angle lens to get the shot you want”.
Seriously, avoid. The consequences can be severe.
Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
