You asked for an example so this one will work:

I was trying to document the last few months of this woman's life by
getting in close to her and her friends.  The women on the right may be
less than 2 feet from the lens yet her head registers as a normal human
head.  The retrofocus lenses that I have for SLR's would make them much
more elongated.

I hope this helps.
