Getting close will only produce more distortion. Take her pix from a ways away, do not use a WA.

And then somebody serious comes along. :)

I was wondering what is/was the widest lens made for a Canon mount. I have been asked to take a photo of my mother in law, who is a large woman, and was wondering if I was to get her in the whole frame what would be the widest.
Don't tell my wife!!!!

You don't need a lens, you need a lesson in misogyny.

Use the transform tool in photoshop and shave off a few hundred pounds. Might look like an NBA player though!

You can use a 300 MM- just send her off on a rowboat about a mile out to sea- you should be able to get her then.

The OP may want to consult an image seamstress.

Shoot with normal lens from reasonable distance, then post process image to remove fisheye distortion, to slenderize her. She will love you for that.

Post process image to remove pincushion distortion if your goal is to antagonize her and get your wife to file for divorce.
