Compositing products

It is great when we get to shoot product images for our clients from scratch, but sometimes when time and budgets don't allow, we need to composite a product into another shot to create the final image.

In addition to the studio product images we had created for our client's new device, they also wanted to show the product being used by someone in a business setting.  They chose a photo-library image in the style they wanted and asked us to 'comp' in the product.  This meant shooting the device in the studio, at the correct angle and lighting, before taking this and adding it to the business stock image.  Here are the before and after images.
