[filmscanners] Re: Re:shoot first, fix it later

No, if you're billing someone for the work, you have a responsibility to 
deliver an
acceptable product in the least billable hours possible. Sometimes that means 
fix first,
sometimes it means fix later. You need to know how to do both so you can make an
intelligent choice.

And yes, in the building example, if you have a PC lens and a digital body it 
goes on, that
might be better, although I can get a building dead perfectly straight in 
Photoshop with
much less effort and more certainty than any perspective control lens or camera 
I've ever
encountered. Given a small final size, you can get acceptable quality with a 
approach. If it was a full page, then renting the appropriate equipment might 
be in order.
