This Project involved an
extensive two story remodel. The local architectural review board was
concerned that the second story may overpower the skyline in the
neighborhood. I took a picture of the existing home and noted the time
and date and the exact position of the camera when we took the photo.
Because Vectorworks can set a sun position based on Longitude and
Latitude as well as the day of the year, I was able to faithfully
reproduce the shadows, for that exact day, on the rendered 3-d model
below. Photoshop was used, in addition to Vectorworks, to remove the
blue tarp and trailer in the driveway as well as touch up a few other
objects. This was more than enough ammo to quell the concerns of the
architectural review board.
