Trane — 4 seasons
I got this job in the wettest part of winter, and so I had to
rely on stock photography to show this seasonal sequence.
After purchasing & taking a look at the high-res image of the
bi-level house with just a bit of each neighbor showing,
it was clear that this shot was taken before the development
was even complete. (This was not apparent from the thumbnail
that attracted me to purchase this shot.) I realized I needed to
retouch the neighbors homes because the buildings were not yet
finished. Then I began to look for scorched lawns and the other
photographic bits I would need to create the seasons.
The snow scene was simply painted using bevel & emboss
techniques, so any blop of snow I painted would automatically
have a highlight and a blu-ish shadow.
