Green screen

On our trip to Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, and UC Santa Barbara, my family & I decided to take a detour to Hearst Castle in San Simeon. At the visitors center before boarding buses to ride up the hill to see William Randolph Hearst’s Julia Morgan-designed mansion, people were photographed in front of a “green screen.” The background is then dropped out (assumably via Photoshop) and a photo of the ornate outdoor pool is inserted, making it look like you were actually there. The picture can be purchased when you return to the visitor center at the end of the tour. Why you wouldn’t just take your own photo, I don’t know.
