The Making of: A Fake Studio Photo.

Reception counter
Here’s a photo of a reception counter I took recently. The photo was taken at the woodwork factory where it was made,  then later made to look like it was shot in a studio using Photoshop.  We rigged a 12ft x 12ft homemade soft box over the top of the counter to act as the main light, then we placed lights either side of the counter to highlight some of the details. Even though there were eight 500w halogen security lights in total, the shutter speed was still around 1.5sec @ F10 meaning the camera had to be mounted on a tripod.  Below is a slide-show showing the editing done in Photoshop.
