Menithings did an incredible job at producing the cleanest bag picture we saw in the contest.

Since I use so many Apple products I decided to make the shot feel more Apple-esque when bringing it into Photoshop to add the numbers/descriptions. Steps:

- The numbers are based on iOS’ notification badges.
- The font used for the item descriptions is Myriad Pro. The same used by Apple for much of its signage.
- Shot on my minimalist aluminum table using mostly natural light and one lamp.
- Did some basic color processing and image filtering.
- Table part-lines and edges digitally removed.
- The Cult of Mac photos on the iPad and iPhone are real and not added in later.
- Shot on an iPhone 4S with HDR on.
