At izmostudio we have been working with image composites, as a low cost alternative offering compared to location photography and CGI. Those fine production days of full catered fun in the sun south of the boarder, with large crews and weather delays, are rare now. Quick, lean, and super efficient is how we work today.
Our snazzy Renault Megan convertible needed to be outside with the top down, so we set up a nice mix of Arri hard lights, our thirty foot overhead flying flat, and went about sculpting the car with light as if it were sitting next to a beach. We decided on a sunset/rise scene, so adding some warm gels to the studio setup and direct spot light into the lens is key to bringing the two photos together.
