The work you dont see

So I thought i would show you some "behind the scenes" from a shoot I did for stylist magazine who were after a London interior photographer to work on a feature with them and Not on the high street. Having worked with the guys over at stylist/shortlist magazine last year they got in touch and asked if I wanted to do the shoot.  

I will do a full blog post showing the end results however here is a look at the before and after. All the retouching was done by Rachel Guy who is a wonderful freelance retoucher who I work with on many projects, her attention to detail is impeccable. Her work can be found here:


In this image there was a fair amount of work that needed to be done to achieve the final "look" required including:

-  Full exposure adjustments

-  Various dodging and burning throughout image

-  Removal of stands holding light shade

- Rendering of lamp cable and ceiling fixing

- Addition of lit bulbs in star lamp

- Removal of ceiling lights

- General cleanup of image
