SETUP for Plesant Street in Elgin Park

This photo was not taken at the best angle to illustrate how the scene was set up because you can't see how steep the actual street is.

The steepness added considerably to the forced perspective.

But this photo does show how far away the model had to be from the house and wall to make everything work. It also shows the integration of the shadow falling onto the model base

which added a dramatic touch in the finished image.


Here is the completed shot:


I want to thank everyone who has written and expressed interest in how the Pleasant Street photograph was accomplished.

When I look at any of the setup shots, I'm still amazed that anything realistic comes out of them.
