Questions and a Challenge

Where do you guys find the stock photos to add the models too? How do we create the shadows? I've got a challenge for yall. This is a photo that I took for an election. I wanted to be able to change the pickle jar that I have in my hand to something like a flask and I wanted to incorporate my slogan "I have the winning formula" I would mind a change of background,but I would like to stress the need for the use of green in the design somehow. Now I know I'm not an administrator so I dont want to step on anyones toes. but yall are real talented and I've been trying to do this for a while.

lol...that's Pat. I'm running for SGA president of my school, and I need to change the pickle jar to a flask, because I'm a chemistry major thus the saying "I HAVE THE WINNING FORMULA". I have a logo that looks like please view attached, and I really want to make this look good. This pick was taken with a very basic sony cybershot. nothing too fancy. I didn't have my current camera at the time.

I am using background images I shoot myself or use free stockphotos or buy them online if I am after something really special, like a desert ( very few of them around here in Sweden ).

Shadows are created by distorting the extracted model and make it black and lower the opacity. Things that dont fit are erased and then drawn in.
