Correcting Lens Distortion in Underwater Photos

 

Fisheye lenses are generally the preferred wide angle lens underwater due to their close focusing ability, sharp corners and wide field of view. Divers can get very close to their subjects, filling the frame, and eliminating water which makes their photos lack sharpness, color and definition.

But there is a drawback to fisheye lenses; when shooting the straight lines, commonly of a pier or wreck, models or other similar subjects - optical distortion is introduced.

It's easy to correct in Lightroom with most lenses, and micro four-thirds lenses have some base correction built in, but it's usually not enough. For them a quick trip to Photoshop does the trick.

This new blog article shows you how to correct these problems in Lightroom and or Photoshop.

As I understand it, it's built into the RAW file. But it's subtle. An edit in PS gives lots of ways to fix the look of these shots.
