If you ask the average photographer what a wide-angle lens is good for, the response will invariably be something along the lines of "they're good for photographing small rooms, large groups of people crammed into small rooms, and landscapes." Ask the average photographer what a telephoto lens is good for and the answer will be, "they bring distant things closer to you," or something along those lines. And normal lenses? They're for photographing… well… "normal things."
As true as all of the above may be, if you view these truisms as unquestionable gospel, chances are you've passed up many fine photographic opportunities along the way. My take on the subject is if you want to get your money's worth out of your lenses—not to mention increase the chance of capturing pictures that make people slow down and take a closer look, perhaps it's time to reconsider how you pair focal lengths and shooting distances when composing your pictures.
As an example, if you were to walk through a flower garden with a close-focusing 28-300mm (or equivalent) zoom lens on your camera, you could easily take close-up photographs of almost every flower you pass without even having to lean in for a tighter shot; the focal range of the lens is more than adequate to zoom in and fill the frame with bright, colorful flower petals.

Will the pictures be good? No doubt. Will people look at them and go “Wow,” or “Nice”? Sure, but think about it… they’re close-ups of colorful flowers… how can you possibly go wrong?
