How different lens focal lengths impact portrait subjects
In this animated gif you can clearly see how wide angle lenses (lower focal lengths) distort the face and telephoto lenses (higher focal lengths) compress foreground and background with minor facial distortion. 50-100mm is the sweet spot for facial distortion and background compression.

That said if the camera and subject were in the same location at each focal length the size and position of your subject would greatly change and distortion of the face would not be as apparent... but the distortion/compression would be apparent throughout the scene.

This isn't a function of the lens, it's a function of working distance.  You get pretty close when you say:   "if the camera and subject were in the same location at each focal length the [...] distortion of the face would not be as apparent."

In reality, if the camera and subject were at the same distance the distortion wouldn't be there at all, because it's not the lens casuing it, it's the distance between the subject and the camera.

DXO Mark just released it's sensor ratings for the Canon 1DX Mark II. Canon's flagship camera would appear to be giving Sony's A7R II a run for its money. Could this be a good omen for the upcoming Canon 5D Mark IV?

Today we’re making the Nik Collection available to everyone, for free.

Photo enthusiasts all over the world use the Nik Collection to get the best out of their images every day. As we continue to focus our long-term investments in building incredible photo editing tools for mobile, including Google Photos and Snapseed, we’ve decided to make the Nik Collection desktop suite available for free, so that now anyone can use it.

The Nik Collection is comprised of seven desktop plug-ins that provide a powerful range of photo editing capabilities -- from filter applications that improve color correction, to retouching and creative effects, to image sharpening that brings out all the hidden details, to the ability to make adjustments to the color and tonality of images.

Starting March 24, 2016, the latest Nik Collection will be freely available to download: Analog Efex Pro, Color Efex Pro, Silver Efex Pro, Viveza, HDR Efex Pro, Sharpener Pro and Dfine. If you purchased the Nik Collection in 2016, you will receive a full refund, which we’ll automatically issue back to you in the coming days.

We’re excited to bring the powerful photo editing tools once only used by professionals to even more people now.
