Join Bert Monroy for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding the vanishing point, part of Artistic Concepts with Bert Monroy.
Establishing where the vanishing point is, and for that matter, where the …horizon is, is crucial when you're going to composite images together. …If the perspective does not match, it is going to look off. …Well, here's an actual project that I did very recently. …I decided I wanted to put an awning on the side door of my studio. …And, I went online and I found an awning that I liked, which was this particular …one here. I looked at it, and it came in colors. …So, I went in there and I looked at the different colors.…
So then, I wanted to put them into the scene so that people could see how it looks. …That's the way it looks for my neighbors, and this is the way it would look from …looking up into the studio. There's the awning, see? …Now, looks like it's there. It looks like it's actually there, it has …its shadow, it has everything it needs. And looking at the awning here, you could …see it there, it's there. Now, how did I make it look real? …Well, what you have to do is to go in there and match the existing perspective. …
