As the product labels were changed after the shoot, I had to digitally replace the existing labels on the mattresses with the new labels which were shot separately after our product photo shoot. I then cut out the silhouettes of the mattresses and bed bases separately, as some mattresses had to be matched with different bases to those they were photographed on.
With the help of the vanishing point tool in Photoshop, the bases and mattresses were then inserted on the background plates. This proved to be a lengthy and complicated process as some of the background plates supplied by the client were stock images of rooms that already featured other beds in the image. This meant I had to extend the background and remove visible parts of the original beds, then place the new bed bases and mattresses on top of the image, and fix any differences in perspective.
The last part included masking out elements from the background plate that were supposed to be placed in front of the beds, creating new shadows and refining highlights and accents based on the position of the windows and intensity of the sunlight. The images then went through a final pass of contrast and colour correction before they were sent off to the client.
