AP • Final Retouches on Glassware

Recommended Posts

 

This take served three purposes:

  • a lighting study session for my sons
  • a first project proposal for a client
  • for me, an approach to the Inpainting Brush in AP as
    the table top surface had too many imperfections.

The presentation was successful though the final shot was more

colourful with some added BG.

Looks great. I'd like to see the original for a comparison. Thanks for sharing :)

 

Here you go Chris, this is the SOOC…

Photographing glass it's not an easy task. Congrats for the use of lights.

 

Thanks for that dscmax.

 

Over the years, I built up skills and experience with reflective

surfaces and, since I am living in a wine growing region, it proved

to be most useful.

A good photo to start, and a subtle manipulation after. Double plus.

 

I worked w. a couple of photographers. They went to great lengths when shooting reflective objects to avoid glare and hot spots. Curiously, one was bald, the other balding. After watching them work, I supposed it might be that they sometimes tore their own hair out.

gdenby,

 

one of the secrets to succeed these shot is to

control what the glass (or others) can "see". It

cannot reflect what it doesn't see!

 

Thanks for your comment and appreciation. ;)
