There is nothing more upsetting than a slight tilt on what is meant to be a straight photo. People tend to be attracted to order in a frame and in an artistic composition, that’s why your camera and your phone screen come with grid lines and level guides to help you get the horizon line as straight as possible.
When shooting overhead and straight ahead photos, it is essential that you keep your angles and perspectives as straight as you can. Lightroom and Photoshop have a very powerful tool to straighten your pictures; if you’re shooting on a phone, get Lightroom or Photoshop for mobile or use Instagram straightening tool. There’s also an app called SKRWT which works well for correcting any dodgy angles.
Remember, the way you present your photos is the way you are perceived as a photographer and it’s always best to do a bit of tidying up, right?
