Ruben wants to know what lens he should use for portrait vs landscape photography. Leo says it depends on what he's taking pictures of, and what lens he has. A 24mm lens is great for shooting landscape. It's a great story telling lens. A portrait style lens, though, is a different animal. Leo likes a longer lens, like an 85mm lens. That way he won't get distortion or have to get too close.
