Re: product retouch help: stainless steel

Tony, GREAT stainless steel texture. I made some similar texture - only at a much smaller scale. I cut a path, did some simple airbrush with a large brush. Dodged in some highlights and Burned some Vertical banding. I did a second rendition with some metal texture added. Depending on how large your actual file is and how complex, I think you could easily get away with simply airbrushing the reflections away and adding back some texture as Tony demonstrated. Welcome aboard.

Hi Azaha,

That was just what this thread was about. If you need specific help/ideas or suggestions, you would be best served to post the image(s) you are struggling with.

Re: product retouch help: stainless steel

Hi Azaha,

You've got some big problems if your being supplied stainless steel product shots like that. Your lighting and setup have left you with little to work with. You can and will have to implement a number of techniques to try and bring out some highlights, shadow and shape. I cut a path around your primary pot top and bottom and airbrushed (big brush) in some tones. Of course, this will be much harder on a high res image, but can be done.

Azaha,

If you are shooting this yourself, you need to setup some lights, mirrors, black paper - and maybe a surface to reflect up into the metal. Try looking up stainless steel cookware in a Google Search. It will give you a plethora of ideas and reference imagery to emulate
