The Process

This transformation took a combining of eight different pictures layered together to give the finished shot.

The falling off of the flash light through the window means in the original shot, one side of the room is too bright, while the other side, next to the wardrobe is too dark.  The layering of the first 3 frames evens out this problem, while a long exposure of the daylight outside the window, gives a brighter window, without the resultant light burning out on the products.

The definition on the triangle shaped in-lay on the product was achieved with an assistant holding trace-screens at the right angle alongside that specific bit of the product...... this really was a jig-saw!

The vents and shadow alignment was achieved with conventional retouching.
