This class covers the post-production process of the tennis racket product shoot.
The shoot itself included many unexpected variables, which meant this retouch was slightly more complex than what was originally anticipated.
The first challenge that had to be dealt with was aligning the different base shots. Because of the impact of the tennis ball, the racket had moved slightly, which meant a combination of tools had to be used to change and adjust the shape to get everything to line up.
The next step was to perfect the powder trail. This involved using cloning and healing tools as well as adjusting the opacity to create more of a sense of motion.
Further retouching considerations including removing dust and burning and dodging.
