AFAIK, no difference. But tele is better, since you want to shoot all in frame with white paper for white balance.

You need to fill the whole frame with the white paper, so tele will be easier, and the surface need not to be in focus, as the camera need to know the tonal of the surface, not the texture.

Hope this helps.
