Fixing Perspective Distortion

Focal Length Stretching

The best way to avoid what looks like stretched faces is by shooting with the right lens. However it’s also possible to fix this problem in post, here we show you how to correct the portrait we shot yesterday with a 16-35mm lens. A longer focal length flattens out a person’s face, while one that is too to short bows it out.  There are programs out there that will help, here we show you how to fix it using a corrective filter.  If you have any better suggestions let us know!
