Objective: Create two versions of the image to be used both as cover and double page spread. Composite in the multiple wedding dresses photographed on the same mannequin and placed throughout the frame to create an alternate horizontal image with all of the mannequins in place for a double page spread. Minor beauty retouching for the model. The image was produced as both a simplified cover image and a double page spread using all of the dressed mannequins.
Process/Solution: We composited multiple images of the same mannequin wearing different wedding dresses in various locations throughout the scene, and then combined the composited image with the hero bride image. The curtains were removed, the pendant light was raised, and a little beauty retouching was done for the model.
