The base plate: client wanted a shot that looked like it could be taken with an iPhone.
I did an image tidy up, moved people around, and enlarged the plinth.
In advance of the shoot, I sourced a 3D model of a statue. Time was tight, so stock imagery was the best solution in this circumstance.
The 3D model was modified to fit the scene, and lit by a HDRI light probe that was captured at the time of photography.
Talent was photographed at site, hugging a mannequin, posed to match the 3D model of the statue.
The final composited and graded image.
