Duke Johns Barbershop

The idea behind this project was to show a whole room in a 2-dimensional way without using a classic 360° panorama shot. The solution was to stitch three different camera angles into one continuous background. By putting the protagonists in a separate layer in front, the image achieves a more harmonious look even though it‘s based on three separate total perspective views. Despite the detailed character of the scene Stefan tried to set the focus clearly onto the people –  given it’s a composite image made up of different perspectives a complex light setup was key to create this effect. This setup got changed for every shot to guarantee the illusion of a homogenous  light direction throughout the image.
