Here’s a quick and easy way to correct perspective distortion using Lightroom

In this tutorial I’m going to show you a really quick and easy way to correct perspective distortion in photographs of buildings. Perspective distortion is caused when you point your camera at an extreme angle to a building or when using a wide angle lens very close to your subject. The wider the lens and the closer you are to the subject, the more extreme the distortion. This type of distortion can be minimised by using a tilt shift lens which enables the lens to be tilted so it is parallel to your subject. Positioning yourself farther away from the subject will also minimise distortion. For those of us who don’t own a tilt shift lens or can’t get back from far enough from the subject, Lightroom offers a fantastic and relatively easy solution.
