Ashot Gevorkyan is a professional photographer and retoucher based in Kaliningrad, Russia. He recently created a series of animated GIFs that offer a look into how commercial images are composited and retouched from the original photograph to the final delivered image.

This shot for a promo calendar was captured in a parking structure and then retouched into a sunny outdoor scene:

Gevorkyan created this image for the BFA Bank in St. Petersburg by combining two separate photos (one featuring the girl and the other showing the bank in the background:

Here’s an advertisement photo for airsoft equipment. Gevorkyan photographed each subject separately in front of a studio background and then combined the images into a background image:
