Wide angle portraits!

Are wide angle lenses good for portraits? Like all of us I constantly want to try new things with photography, I recently started exploring the use of a wide angle lens with, wait for it .... yes portraits!

I know the first word that jumped into your head was distortion and I will admit to some interesting results but isn't that the point?  We can all hire expensive light rigs, equip a 85mm lens and get a great result however, I think as an artist you should have all the tools and techniques at your disposal to create dynamic images, so I would like to suggest that if you have not explored the creative potential for shooting people with wide angle lenses, it’s time you try it.

What are your thoughts?
