Barrel Distortion

11 Jun 2009

Some lenses curve horizontal and vertical lines to the outermost edges of the image. This is Barrel Distortion and occurs because the lens can “see” more of an image than the naked eye, and tries to “fit” it into the image.

The post Barrel Distortion appeared first on ODP Magazine.

Sean has been shooting since schooldays (started with a borrowed Pentax K1000 from His sister, also a photographer) but only became seriously involved with photography when he returned from living in Eastern Europe. While overseas he did shoot some non-profit editorial work and also made the big switch from Nikon to Canon. Today, Sean likes to shoot Stock. "Stock is the 'best of both worlds' industry, that requires creativity and very set guidelines to be successful..." Sean also teaches photography (basic, advanced & other Stock-related courses) and frequently arrange "shooting days" for photography clubs and individual groups.
