Difficulty composing - It can sometimes be hard to compose interesting images due to the increase of space between you and your subject.
Boring foregrounds - As a wide-angle lens inherently increases the amount of foreground in an image, this can be a problem if there is nothing of interest in the foreground. To combat this, photographers should employ composition techniques such as leading lines to guide a viewer’s eye through their photograph.
Unflattering for portraits - Due to the distortion many portrait photographers avoid wide-angle lenses in favour of normal or short-telephoto lenses, as the results are simply less flattering for your model. That being said, wide-angle lenses are sometimes employed by photojournalists to produce situational portraits, in which the goal is to present a model in their environment.
