Is a 55mm lens good for portraits?
In the middle of its range, around 35mm, it is perfect for street, travel, and documentary photography, while the short telephoto zoom of 55mm works wonders for portraits. In circumstances where you’re likely to need to change focal lengths and aperture frequently and quickly, the 18-55mm lens is a great choice.
What is a kit lens Canon?

Is II vs STM lens?

How far can a 55mm lens shoot?
For a head and shoulders shot (I’m giving 2 feet for the subject size which will be a looser framing) you would be about 5 ft from the subject with a 55mm lens. That’s probably far enough not to worry about any perpsective distortion (if you do a tight headshot at 55mm there would likely be some distortion).
Is the canon 55-250mm is II a good lens?
The Canon 55-250mm IS II is optically superb and handles very well for a mostly plastic lens. The biggest negative is that the focus ring and filter thread rotate during autofocus. It’s a kit lens sold with many less expensive Canons, and it’s excellent. There is no reason to pay more for a telephoto lens for a Canon APS-C camera.
