Shooting subjects that create straight parallel lines in the image could prove to be problematic especially when a wide-angle lens is mounted to your camera because it causes image distortion. You will notice the image bending or curving toward the edges.
In addition to positioning yourself perfectly in the middle of the subject, you can soften the image distortion with post-processing software like Adobe Photoshop Lightroom using the lens correction and image straightening features.
In the image below, the skewed lines on the field make the image distortion less prominent.
This is one of the most recent photos I captured. It was taken while inside a moving car on a road trip to Subic during the Holy Week long weekend.
