Cursed? Or is there a fix?

1 month 3 weeks ago #723636 by dhrep
I'm an aspiring Real Estate Photographer. I'm working on technique. I'm using a Canon EOS 90D with a Canon 10-18 lens. I was doing some practice shots today at home and in this image, you can see that the guitars on the wall and the amp are very distorted (and not the way the Gibson through that amp is meant to distort!).

Is this inherent to a APS-C? or is there a way to either prevent of fix? I'm using Lightroom Classic and checked the Remove Chromatic Abberation and Enable Profile Corrections boxes.

No and maybe.

The best chance to avoid that annoying distortion is to frame objects at the
same focal plane or to build a stitched sequence under given conditions.

Not inherent to APS-C. It is inherent to extreme wide angle lenses. Like Nikon Shooter said build a panorama and it would help to use a lens that isn't as wide as you did. I would try shooting vertically and stitching a panorama.

Thanks for the input guys, I have a lot to learn! Interesting. 10-18mm is the recommended lens for this. Something I did discover in Lightroom; Lens Corrections/Manual/Distortion takes it back to more normal looking. But there is a balance. Fixing the guitar messed with a couple of other areas. Here's a newly edited image.

There was and will be a lot of fiddling… try pour hand at stitching.
