Wide angles, and why?

I like wide angle lenses, as this shot, taken the other night at an event I was shooting, shows:

I used a bounced flash and set the camera to manual mode and opened up the aperture, slowed down the shutter, and increased ISO enough to allow the available light to d some work as well.

And wide angle means:

  1. I can focus easily on “everything”
  2. I can use a slow shutter speed without blur
  3. I can get close to someone or something, zoom out, and thus introduce depth.

And that is what I did there.
