I am also interested in commercial product photography retouching techniques. Perhaps there will be a online demo and some links of what might be available out there now.

Check out Carrie Beene's product retouching RetouchPRO LIVE show over on youtube (see the RP LIVE forum for details).

What does Carrie actually retouch during this live show? I checked out the preview on Youtube and there were no useful visuals or audio and in the RP Live forum the preview of the show is just a beauty image.

Re: product shot retouching?

well products in general as opposed to beauty as I work for a table top photographer who shoots everything but people. As a semi-professional I retouch soda cans adding water droplets, cosmetic products, whiskey bottles,etc. I create a lot of fake reflections and shadows and do a lot of compositing of different products from different shots together so they look like they realistically were shot in the same photo. I am learning as I go along as I am mostly self taught, but would like to get better and also speed up my work flow. In general all of this work is quite finicky and requires hours of hand painting using my fine arts oil painting background. Just want to get better and faster.

I would really like to learn car retouching as that looks interesting, but really want to see how a seasoned professional does it all.

Re: product shot retouching?

I'm interested in product retouching tutorials too. I also didnt find anything on the internet (and I cant use Youtube rentals in my country). Dont tell me there is nothing on the internet about this subject...

I was always wondering how product retouchers can even out all the light reflections on the products. They are using clome stamp tool or they just paint on the empty layer? It should be really hard, because there is always smoooth gradient in it.
