Once In A Lifetime Worry
What is more important?
The purist in me has mixed emotions about some photographs I make. Like this one.
The sky is spectacular. It’s probably a once-in-a-lifetime event. No, it is a once-in-a-lifetime event and I have a problem with this photo.
I really don’t like the keystone effect on the buildings caused by using a super-wide-angle lens (an iPhone 12 Pro Max).
There are several solutions. Shoot with the camera perfectly vertical to eliminate the keystone angle. Use the geometry tool in Adobe Camera RAW to straighten the verticals.
Both these choices crop out a large portion of the clouds and the clouds are the reason for the photo. I can live with the keystone effect if it’s incidental to telling the story of this moment.
Don’t worry about something that is not perfect in the photo It’s a waste of time and energy and perfection is a flaw.
Small price to pay for a once-in-a-lifetime moment.
