He placed some empty boxes on a hand truck, grabbed a work order, and we positioned him.  Now was the time for dramatic lighting!The content you are trying to access is only available to members. Sorry.

The image on the top is the original digital capture while the image on the right is after the Photoshop work is done.  First, if you look at the interior of the car it has black or very dark interior features.  Black Seats, black door, black steering wheel and these presented our first problem.The content you are trying to access is only available to members.

Once we were done with her in this position it was time to shoot the Interior of the car without her.  After she got out of the car and without moving my camera, I had my assistant increase the power of the interior lights, meaning the lights that were aimed at the inside of the car, up plus one stop.  I took a couple exposures.  I then had my assistant increase the power again about another half a stop.  This provided me two exposures to bring into Photoshop.  The first is the customer and the technician looking great but with a very dark interior to the car.  The second exposure I took is of just the inside of the car being over exposed so I actually have some images that I can stack in Photoshop and paint in the lighter interior of the car.The content you are trying to access is only available to members.

Next, I select the brush tool, changed my foreground color to white, and set an opacity of 21% and a flow of 100%.  I started painting on the black layer mask slowly revealing the bucket seat, the interior of the door, the top of her legs, steering wheel and where the keys are to slowly bring through the brighter layer of the cars interior.  The content you are trying to access is only available to members.

The Jewelry Client

I have a client who has a website that sells jewelry that’s imported from India.  Her business is a small business.  Because I am willing to work with her and her budget, she calls me every couple months for a three to four hour shoot.  I earn approximately $400 every time we do one of these.  This is not big money, its bread-and-butter assignments.The content you are trying to access is only available to members.

Another approach to shooting the bracelet that’s seen in the other photo is to put it on a models arm or in this case the client’s arm. I then flip the light tent so that there’s an opening where she’s at and have her extend her arm inside the tent.The content you are trying to access is only available to members. Sorry.

Once we added the light box and lit it, it put an okay highlight on the shiny place inside the lid but the table still had problems.

So I open this shot taken when I moved the frontal light box into the front to light the inside. The table is lit evenly but dark, so I open this one and place it into my Photoshop stack.The content you are trying to access is only available to members. Sorry.
