Sally Hansen Holiday Line Up
Aranesp Boxes and Syringes - Made a silo of each element and composited them together. Dealt with the distortion and imperfections of the boxes. Created shadows on each object. Created shadows between boxes. Color corrected to match colors across all objects. Made the whites pure white on boxes. Removed the black bars from boxes.
Guess Seductive Bottle - Photomerged multiple selects from the photographer. Sharpened the text. Cleaned up the image. Used a high pass move on the Guess logo to bring out the texture. Added contrast to the pattern on the bottom of the bottle to highlight that feature. Increased the contrast in the glass.
Guess Seductive Carton - Photomerged multiple selects from the photographer. Sharpened the text. Cleaned up the image. Dealt with the distortion of the box. Used a high pass move on the Guess logo to bring out the texture. Created gradients for the gold highlight in the band on the carton. Lightened and increased contrast of the carton to match the product.
Guess Lotion - Photomerged multiple selects from the photographer. Sharpened the text. Cleaned up the image. Color corrected to match the product. Straightened the lines using the liquify and the warp tools. Used a high pass move on the Guess logo to bring out the texture. Created gradients for the gold highlight in the bands.
NYC 2 color liner - From the before shot on top I removed the old decal, cleaned up the image and made color adjustments to the caps. I imported the new decal and using the warp and liquify tools I placed them onto the pencil. I created a gradient to match the shadows and highlights of the pencil and to create the metallic silver effect on the decal.
Borghese Bottle Line Up - Made sillo of each bottle. Created a new, more symmetrical bottom of the bottle using gradients. Evened out the polish tone, added contrast to the cap. Created a new silver band on the caps with gradients and levels moves. Added contrast to the caps. Warped and repositioned the logo in the cap to account for the shape of the bottle. Pasted in the logo and added a drop shadow. Color matched to actual bottle color. Made a holding shadow below the bottles.
NYC 4 shade eye shadows - Photomerged multiple selects from the photographer for each item. Removed the old decals, cleaned up the images and made color adjustments to match the product. I imported the new decals and made a levels move to create the metallic effect. I created a gradient to match the shadows and highlights of the compact and brush.
Mr. T. - Created a silo from the original background. Reshaped and filled in mohawk and beard, cleaned up stubble on his face. Smoothed out the skin. Softened wrinkles and removed scars. Made color adjustments.
Silver Nail - I created a texture and metallic feel from the flat gray nail using a variety of sharpening ad blurring techniques as well as filters.
Coach Wallet - Made a silo from the shot I photographed. Cleaned up imperfections and rough edges on the fabric. Created new shadows.
Nautica Pure - Photomerged multiple selects from the photographer for each item. Dealt with distortion on the box. Sharpened the text. Cleaned up images. Color corrected to match the products. Left very little color in the bottle per the client's request. Removed the hose and minimized the bubble in the bottle. Lowered the saturation in the box and bottle cap and used a high pass move to attain the silvery effect. Added a subtle blue gradient to the top of the box to match the product.
