One road bump that the project encountered: the brand design (logo and product packaging graphics) changed after principal product photography was completed. Therefore, no product or placement shots could be used in marketing collateral.
To solve this for the client, we digitally reconstructed the product with the new clamshell package and label design, and then reconstructed product placement photographs with the rebuilt product. In the 'before-and-after' photo you see here, the top photo is the original, and the bottom is the rebuilt image. the product is not a superimposed photograph, but rather a fully virtualized product image, complete with a reflection in the counter surface. This saved the client thousands of dollars in re-shoots for various product placement photos.
