I'm sorry, I don't. I did not learn from a book or classes. Just 1000's of hours in Photoshop since version 3.0. :D

That's where the $$$ is...

Now THAT has been proposed before and might be worth pursuing. ;)

Nice image, Seth! I've never been that far out on the Willamette!

You know, it's funny, but I always get thrown off on the spelling for that name. I had thought that it was spelled "Williamette" but never bothered to really look. Then I saw it's spelled "Willamette":)!

Thanks! This is about a half mile from where I live, so it's a common place I take some pictures.

Whoops! I threw you off, meant to spell Williamette with the "i". Although I've always been thrown off as well since it's pronounced without the "i"!

Actually, I found that it's "Willamette" without the middle "i". That's what has thrown me off, because for one thing some "casual" use of the term does use the middle i, but if you just do a search you will see that it's real spelling is "Wilamette"!

Anyway, that's a nice scene, and it looks like it would be a nice place to visit!

I used to work for HP here in Vancouver, never went to the Corvallis plant, but met some nice folks from there in Singapore in all places:)!

Thread has been quiet for a little while, so I thought I might share my first efforts at a "Product Shot". These were posted a while ago, but this topic is tailor made for revisiting them.

A neighbor asked me about shooting a chair he invented. It is fitted with motors* that moves in all three axises, as well as feedback pads in the armrests and thigh pads. It can have one of two inputs, 1) it taps into the physics engine of a computer for a very responsive, very real experience in flight sims or racing games, or, 2) it can receive accelerometer telemetry from drone aircraft so they can be flown remotely with the pilot receiving all the supplemental sensory input that he would have if he were actually in the air.

(*That is the "invention" part of this - he developed some sort of plunger motor, that is neither pneumatic nor hydraulic but has a response speed that is an order of magnitude faster than either of those.)

He has had interest from various manufactures and the Air Force, but has not had photos to send. Knowing my hobby he asked me if I knew anyone who had experience in this type of work. I thought it might be a chance for me to stretch my skills a bit, so I offered to do it for free.

We pulled it to the front of his garage and hung some paper in the background to cover his workshop (I expected to cut it out, and I wanted a neutral background to make that process a little easier.)

No one here was trying for anything aesthetically challenging - just presenting the chair in an attractive manner. He it thrilled with the results, and though I can't say I'm thrilled, I am pleased for my first swing at this pitch.

Thanks go to everyone here who has posted product shots for critique, as reading those threads helped me with having pointed various different directions, so I didn't have to just stare at the RAW files and say "Now what?" to myself.

First shot was intended to give an overview of the system. One of the unexpected problems was reflections. You can see his legs and feet in side panel on the source image, and I had to clone those out.

IMG NOTICE: [NOT AN IMAGE URL, NOT RENDERED INLINE]

So, here it is with general contrast and saturation adjustments. Background "gradient" came for blurring, smudging, and blurring the actual background.

IMG NOTICE: [NOT AN IMAGE URL, NOT RENDERED INLINE]

We did several other shots, and I am not going to post all of them here, but this one presenting a rather unexpected problem:

IMG NOTICE: [NOT AN IMAGE URL, NOT RENDERED INLINE]

As we rotated the chair, the side panels on both sides popped out. They are not locked down at this point. Neither one of us noticed it at the time of shooting, and by the time I saw it in post it was too late to re shoot. Only option was to close the door digitally. It doesn't look like much, but it was quite a job.

After that, cut, contrast and saturation, shadow and reflection. I had known from other peoples attempt posted here, that you can't simply invert something for the reflection. Then it occurred to me - I inverted it, cut the inversion into a left and a right half, and then skewed each half to line up with the actual bottom of the chair.

IMG NOTICE: [NOT AN IMAGE URL, NOT RENDERED INLINE]

So, again, thanks to all who had cleared the path over these last few years - particularly those who have shared expertise in automotive shots - it made my job a lot easier.

Thank you! I'm still learning a lot about PP, so I'm really happy with how it turned out :)

Select using a path, select side (with a bit room to spare) and copy to a new layer & use said path as a vector mask.
Free transform and nudge left.

Clone as needed (shouldn't be much).

First edit is okay, but in the second it looks like you used the healing brush where you should have used an airbrush or the regular clone tool: There are some "smudges" in the transitions in the sides, distorting the reflections…

I'm no stranger to PP, but sometimes I'm "tonally challenged" lol.. which is why I appreciate good ones when I see them ;)

Anyway, here's a crazy before/after I did this week.
