When viewing distance reduces, the face's nose appears larger than it usually is and ears look smaller. This can distort the details of the face and these minute changes may make the appearance unattractive.

During the study, participants were asked to rate the photographs- some over the internet, and some in the lab.

Surprisingly, participants perceived the close-up portraits and judged them rather negatively as less trustworthy, less attractive and less competent. Wide faces in men were judged negatively and associated with unethical behavior, aggression and untrustworthiness
