This recent work (with Lights & Shadows) involved some photomatching and background clean-up. Rather a straightforward work, though still rather tedious. Basically, a wide-angle shot of the existing had to be photographed. After which, it was brought and photomatched in 3DMax. Sun direction in 3d space was matched as well to the phtoto. Reflection passes where done separately.
Another big chunk of the work involved cleaning and "filling-in-the-blanks" for the background in post. These involved clone and filing in the reflection to match the reflection in the photograph.
Finally, overall colour-grading was done to "unify" the 3d render with the 2d elements seamlessly.
