With the pentool, the background is carefully removed with due attention to every detail. Automatic selection tools are not suitable for this project, as they create many errors, which later take more time to fix.
Further, high-end retouching begins. The products contain traces of dust, fine dirt, as well as scratches and defects. Cleaning takes place using the frequency decomposition technique
. This allows you to make the product look perfect, at the same time natural and realistic. In some places, the texture of the metal is restored, and in some places, on the contrary, the excessive "graininess" is muffled.
After that, work begins on the shape of the object, highlights and reflections. It is necessary to give the object a shiny metallic look that enhances its shape and makes it cleaner. Each face is processed with a separate adjustment layer. The Dodge & Burn technique is used to add even more shine.
Some products add a cap that was not present at the time of the photo shoot. This is done by copying an identical cap from another image. Its shape is corrected, applied to a new product, shadows are added and the shape is corrected. Everything is done so that no traces of retouching and processing are visible.
