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:
