Volume deformation

Volume deformation, or anamorphosis, is caused by the way wide-angle lenses capture object volumes, particularly when the subjects appear along the edges of the image. This deformation can appear in two different forms: the “big head syndrome” in portraits or the “too-wide syndrome.” Volume anamorphosis occurs because photography uses only two dimensions to try to reproduce the three-dimensional world.
