Re: Lightning "OTRs" RAF Leuchars 87.

Yes - Notwithstanding the variety of height associated with human beings.
.... and that in most cases the eyes will also sit on the horizon line be it visible or hypothetical. This is one of the considerations when accumulating several reference photographs for a montage painting. This knowledge will help you position other elements sympathetic to correct perspective, and make scaling multiple elements to correctly work with each other. If you add a vanishing point on the horizon and are prepared to ba st ar dise photograph ‘shapes’ to fit, (or choose a more appropriate photograph) you will find the end result very eye pleasing.

IF everyone incl the photog is stood up . In your missile seat shot the view point is much lower , looking slightly up I believe . A very different set of circumstances . You would need to apply the basic rules of perspective to work that one out . In the 3D set up I have set the camera near the ground looking slightly up.

All useful stuff...thanks. Next painting. ...I will use the theoretical horizon for my group and work the rest of the scene around that.
Thanks for the info......it's a bit clearer now
