How to Photograph and Retouch a Hotel Room in 15 Minutes

Last year at my workshop in the Bahamas, my students challenged me to photograph a hotel room in under five minutes. They then wanted to see how fast I could retouch it, and I've decided to do it again, this time capturing it on camera, to show everyone what is possible with only a few minutes on location, a bit of Photoshop knowledge, and of course a lot of practice in the art of previsualization!

Using only carefully considered exposures and Lightroom adjustments, I've come up with a consistent and somewhat unique look for the project.
