  • Lesson 1: Introduction – 1:19

    In this video, Tim provides an overview of what you will accomplish in part three of his Mejor Project series. For this course Tim will be working with splash photography. First, you will begin with pre-visualization, then take your concept into the studio, and then finally finish in post-production which is quite extensive because of the work to bring everything together.

     

    Lesson1

  • Lesson 2: Previsualization – 17:40

    This lesson begins by free hand drawing what the concept of the shot will be. This is useful when coming up with ideas when working with a customer. Here, Tim uses Photoshop to sketch out the layout as if he was in front of a client. Here you will see how to use Photoshop to layer your sketch to bring out lighting and colors to properly display your idea to the person you are working with.

     

    M3-Lesson2b

  • Lesson 3: In Studio Work – 38:53

    Once you have approval from the client on what they are looking for, you can now begin to execute your vision in the studio. This one is more complicated than the previous ones in that there will two different lighting setups -one for the bottle and one for the splash. Here you will create multiple exposures in order to combine them into one great shot. You will see, step-by-step how each of the shots is taken. In this video you will see all sorts of tips and tricks to enhance each shot.

     

    Lesson3c

  • Lesson 4: Post-Production, Part 1 – 24:16

    This lesson begins the main portion of this training. Working in both Lightroom and Photoshop Tim gathers the  the right images to make a great composite. Here Tim selects the images that he will work with. He also works on some color correction between the splash shots and the bottle shots. He then shows how to pull in various highlights from the different images an how to mask them out.

     

    M3-Lesson4

  • Lesson 5: Post-Production, Part 2– 9:55

    After the bottle image is complete, Tim works on the splash images. First he select the main splash shot and then begins adding the other splash shots to create the proper look.

     

    M3-Lesson5

  • Lesson 6: Post-Production, Part 3– 30:24

    With the composite complete, it’s time to clean up the image. There are a lot of dust particles that need to be removed. Tim will also show you how to solarize the image to see where there are imperfections in the image that needs to be cleaned up. He then shows various techniques on how to accomplish these adjustments. He also explains how to filling missing areas like where the table top and the background stops before the end of the frame.

     

    M3-Lesson6

  • Lesson 7: Post-Production, Part 4– 40:35

    Looks at how to accentuate the image by adding highlights and dynamic lighting to the scene. Tim will balance the whites so that all of the white is the same color, and then he will work on the lighting to make the shot more spectacular. Again, using a solarization layer, you will see how to fine-tune your image so that even if it is seen on a monitor that is not calibrated properly, your editing strokes do not show up looking badly.

     

    M3-Lesson7b

  • Lesson 8: Post-Production, Part 5– 26:49

    Tim now brings the image back into Lightroom to adjust the toning of the liquid to make it more consistent with prior shots in the earlier phases of this project. He does this in Lightroom because it is easy to work with and it is non-destructive so it gives more flexibility. He will show you how to add caustic refractions as well as adding the final touches to the image.

     

    M3-Lesson8

  • Lesson 9: Conclusion – 2:47

    Finishes up by summarizing what has been accomplished in this course.

    I loved it! I am a bit of a nerd type so I like Photoshop as much as taking the pictures, these days especially in product photography, it’s Photoshop that not only finishes the photo, but also makes the photo. I also learned that product photography is a real art indeed, and to make a simple bottle look great I’ll have to pay very detailed attention to edges, diffractions, colour, etc. Also I like the technique using curves to make the picture like really smooth looking, I am a perfectionist (despite perfection doesn’t exist) but with this technique I can come very close :-P. Thanks so much for this very instructive course Timothy!!
