Compositing Product Photography in Photoshop

Compositing Product Photography in Photoshop

A product isn't always shot on its final background. In fact, product photography is often composited into existing scenes or advertising layouts in post. In this course, photographer and educator Seán Duggan details the considerations involved in creating a simple product photography composite with Photoshop, including working with lighting, shadows, and perspective to make the final composite look realistic. He also introduces some simple product photography tips to maximize your Photoshop compositing options, and some tricks for building a "studio" to shoot small-sized products at home.
