We have contributed stock imagery to Getty Images for over a decade. Getty commisioned us to produce a set of images that Visualised tech and mini people, we first produced this project in the naughties, using a digital camera, physical tech props, mini architectural figures and lots and lots of blu tac (and patience).
The production of 10 images took around 7-8 days, this included 4 days of shooting and a further 3-4 days of post production. On this occasion and for this set of images, we produced them in CGI. Time wise it took less than half the time, we could easily add angle and subject variations. And the best thing about the CGI project? There was absolutely no blu tac involved ;)
Take a look at the before and after of our Tech Visualisation. Producing the images for Getty we needed to 'de-brand' the products and make generic ( For Stock libaries, imagery cannot use branded goods). For this we retouched out buttons, logos and any distiguishing features for each product.
