Let’s Get One Thing Straight!

Let’s get one thing straight shall we?! our background lines, that is!

When shooting “top down” to capture a flatlay, and when using a background with lines, one of the most important things to consider is getting the lines straight.

I try to get the lines straight “in camera” which takes extra time and effort but really pays off when it comes to editing. I always use a tripod to line up my flatlays, as well as the timer on my camera to reduce shake.

But what happens when I don’t get the lines straight in camera and I’m getting frustrated and want to use the photo anyway?

Well, today in my first video, I’m sharing a Lightroom Tip on how to straighten lines when using a background such as my Country Cupboard White vinyl background. Please note: Country Cupboard White has been discontinued. Thanks for understanding! You may like “Whitewashed” in our new, 24″ x 36″ Supermooth Format instead.
