Stephen was approached by a Behance user on behalf of their photographic studio. They were lacking in-house digital retouching expertise and needed a professional to handle some automotive retouching for an upcoming project. Franklin offered to work up a single test image to determine a per unit cost. The aim of the exercise was to determine if the studio could shoot bracketed exposures, and then send the files through for cleaning up before supplying the work to their client. Although the studio was happy with the results, the project unfortunately did not proceed. Nonetheless it gave Stephen a fantastic opportunity to flex his retouching skills in the automotive genre.

Stephen removed all background cars, people, or other distracting objects. He then pushed the overall look to suit the mood of the original image while lifting out the car.
