35 mm would do nicely though.

Longer lenses too, because people stand back from what they are doing too. The photographer should join them and do likewise.
I have to politely disagree with you here. 20mm is not all about "whoa dude, check out the wiiiiiiiiideee angle." There are ways to frame such that distortion is less of an issue and involvement is a higher concern.
