Rooftop Set

Advanced Studio Roof top set

In these days of digital composite images, photographers are often required to add a virtual background that completes and enhances the set or location. In this rooftop set, constructed in the 9th floor studio, photographers George Ferris (left) and Geoff Ridenour (right) had to maintain the same vanishing point in both the real foreground, and the virtual background, for their final images to seem believable and for the foreground and the background elements to seamlessly stitch together.  The easiest way to achieve the same vanishing point for all elements in the photograph is to maintain the exact same camera angle when shooting all the individual parts. Therefore for example, if part A is photographed at a 15 degree upward angle, than part B should be also, when done correctly perspectives and vanishing points should match.
