Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Distortion and perspective issues, part of Shooting a Time-Lapse Movie from a Window.
…Our next issue here is the issue of perspective.…Usually when you're shooting out a hotel window, you're going to…be higher or perhaps lower than the subject that you're shooting.…And as such, you start to get some keystoning.…Remember, any time you shoot the subject…at an angle, strong vertical lines are going to…become slightly canted feeding into each other either…going downward or outward creating a perspective issue.…This is pretty easy to fix though, with the lens controls inside of Camera Raw.…Here's a movie from InCamera.…
This was the timelapse created by my Olympus camera as it shot the raw files.…Now, the image is four by three, because I often shoot four by…three for extra coverage to give…me some flexibility to crop during post-production.…You see that the building takes on a slightly tapered shape.…It's called keystoning because of the angled stone that often appears at the top…of an arch in a traditional bridge or an archway for a tunnel or door.…In this case you can see that the…lines are not straight and we have perspective issues.…
