Cosmetics Product Shoot Using TV Background | Post-Production

In this post-production class, Karl brings together four shots he captured in Cosmetics Product Shoot Using TV Background, combining, editing and retouching them until he has the perfect final image.

As you follow him step by step through his workflow, you’ll learn how to use layer masks, curves adjustments, and the Liquify filter. You’ll also cover Gaussian blur, luminosity blend mode, burning and dodging, and more.

As he works, Karl makes sure the viewer’s eye is drawn irresistibly to the ‘hero’ of the image – the Boss product.

You can take the post-production tricks and techniques covered in this class and easily apply them to your own photography.

  • Post-production techniques for product photography
  • Common Photoshop tools and how to use them

  1. Wouldn´t it be easier to put the different plates you´d like to use in blending mode “Lighten”, invert mask and then mask in for even better blending and just use opacity to adjust to the desired intensity?

    1. I also belive that would make the part around 9 min, where you mask out the part that affects the sky, unnecessary.

  2. Thank you. Will buy a Samsung “65” 4k. All the panels come from the same place / only difference is the audio systems . X Sony broadcast executive.
