Lightroom 4 Lens Corrections Sample
At last night’s call we were looking at some of the new features in Lightroom 4, namely the development module.
An extreme but interesting sample development lead to spectacular results.
Transform, Warp, Sharpen
The above picture could not be taken from another angle and considering time constraints, I thought that this shot was better than no shot at all. Not a good picture but a nice sample to test some of Lightroom’s power, namely when it comes to Lens Correction.
Note that the picture contains some interesting detail, such as the thin net in front of the scaffolding which results in an apparent lack of punch.
Using the transform tools, distortion, vertical and horizontal, as well as a slight rotation we get the following view:
We notice that the image is “stretched” too wide compared to the original proportions. We therefore apply a shot of Warping:
