LG G5 – Shooting in Wide Angled Mode and Correcting in Photoshop


Above is the full sized version photo from the LG G5, using the wide angled lens. Thanks to Richard Yates for permission to use photo for this article and for taking such a smashing shot!

I really love the super wide shots from the G5. They seem to add such a different dynamic and wrap you into the the whole scene really well.

However, not everyone will like the warped walls so what can you do about it?

Well using either Adobe Lightroom or Photoshop on the mac or PC you can spend a little time and adjust the photos perspectives with relative ease. If you want to try and adjust the perspective on your mobile phone apps like SKRWT and VSCO Cam on iOS and android allow you to adjust the perspectives.

However, I do find the best adjustments are made using professional apps like Adobe Lightroom or Photoshop. Anyway, I imported the photo into Adobe Lightroom for mac and made a few quick adjustments are created the new version below. I also tweaked the photo just a tad more to make it stand out further.


Now which version do you prefer. I am leaning towards the edited photo, but I must admit to liking the original too.

  1. I like more the original photo, i have many castles in my area and the color is more real than the edited photo, but the edited photo is cool to share on the web…

  2. Bingo, they call it perspective distortion. It’s tempting to do this with all architecture.

    Unless he’s at least three storeys high there is no way to avoid it.

    I find myself being increasing tolerant just because so much more can be seen.
