CASE STUDY: AHKI TIPI
When “Little Joe” began the process of handing over his Native American handmade tipi business to his son, a new website and product photography were needed. Based in Oakland, CA, the new product photography was shot locally for convenience.
To convey a very different atmosphere, that of being outdoors in the remote wilderness, photo retouching and compositing were required. With newer photography being shot at a higher resolutions, a world of reimagined environments opens up.
