distortion photo check guide

Have you ever taken a photo in which buildings seemed to be leaning backwards, or other lines were not 100% straight? It can happen to the best of photographers. You want your photo print to match reality, so buildings and other lines in your photo should be straight. You might see it twenty times larger on a print (and of course you don’t want the Eiffel Tower to look like the Pisa tower). 

color space image check

When saving your photo, you can also set your preferred color spaces. Different spaces offer different levels of color saturation. The most well-known color spaces are RGB (which has multiple variations) and CMYK. 

composition photo check

Ultimately your entire image depends on your composition. The composition guides the viewer’s eye through your photo. The photography world has a “fixed” set of rules that are applied to build a strong image. However, it’s always good to get creative with your composition. After all, rules are meant to be broken.

White Balance photo check
