This is one of the more difficult composite shot I have done in the recent past. The finished image was for an Urban Outfitters look book I worked on with Alex DaCorte. It is one of the interesting things about digital photography in that a simple looking image is anything but simple. In reality it is extremely complex and takes hours to assemble and retouch. It is like working on a puzzle that has no instructions and the only limitation is you creativity and imagination. For this I had to pull out all of my tricks to make it happen. Using two completely different light schemes and 8 individual shots I was able to combine transparent plexiglass, shadows, metal, and hands (that were all overlapping) into one deceptively simple shot.
