Advertising, for Farinelli - the story of a castrato - at the new concert hall in Stockholm.
For this picture I was handed the photograph of the hand and scalpel with an vector illustrated note and background. It looked good already but the agency wanted to add something extra to the picture. My suggestion was to render the note in 3D and tweak the lights and contrast of the photography.
The scalpel was inverted to mach the lighting conditions of the hand. The note was built in Cinema 4D with a dummy hand to make a vague reflection and lighting was set to match the photographed hand.
