The first thing I'd do is Image>Auto Tone:
Then I played with the Dodge Tool and the Sharpen Tool:
-Edit- Also you'll need to repair some of the background paper and some areas on the handles with the Content-Aware fill, or in small areas the Blur Tool works. I did this to a large extent in my examples.
Thank you leslie
It was helpful, but the process i am doing is after selecting subject with pen tool and separate it from background, i tried different method and brushes with low opacity even the mixer brush i get the matte finish, in that case spoon depth gone, i did not able to give shine to look real want to give it a glossy look, Below i am sharing the reference for the finish and result i want to acheive in my image.
Hope this helps to give me proper guideline.
There are many people who think that you should add gloss with a soft brush, but actual retouching is not like that'
Because compare your image with the example image you want to reach.
There's a difference in actual contrast, but you can see that the black shadow of metal is very clear, very sharp. (I'm not talking about the shadow of the floor.) a shadow of metal)
So, if you want That's Sharp Shape Shaodw or Highlight on Your Spoon,
Create New Blank Layer, And Fill Black or White what you want shape. And try fine tune you like.
Or, use gradient tool. whatever It doesn't matter which tool you use.
The important point is the selection(or Path) Edge.
Using Lasso or Pen tool(recommend using pen tools.), And make temp shape what you want Shadow/Highlight.
Blurred paint creates blurring.
The most important thing in the product picture is to select the place you want in advance or the shape of the effect you want in advance.
In retouching, clarity and sharpness/Contrast must always be supported by the exact selection(or Path) area you want.
This is the same not only in product photography but also in fashion commercial.
What you want is not a contrast to the concept that you get by simply raising the contrast and making the curve an S.
Thanks for the revert will try to do the same as guided, hope this helps me with making and filling separate layers with shadow and highlight in a different way.
Please do one sample for me i will be grateful.
you can send the original image so i can try to do something.
share your mail id please i will forward you the file if not received here, Thanks
if you want someone to do the work for you, you need to pay them for their time.
This isn't done with Photoshop! This is done with lighting.
First of all, expose your shots correctly. Your original examples are two to three stops underexposed.
Silver can be shot in a light tent with completely diffuse "white-out" light. This is the traditional way to to do it, because it shows engravings very well. But it tends to look very flat and dull.
To add some "silvery" shine and feel, you need to introduce some contrast in the lighting. Here it was done by inserting a black card into the light tent (covered in black velvet):
I am not sure if you have the opportunity to shoot the picture again. If so, I would but add more lights to try have less weird artifacts.
If not here is a sample I did using
Shadow and highlight, Dodge tool and clone stamp.
Yes, you're right of course, reshooting is rarely possible, and you have to work with what you have.
But sometimes there are learning points that you can take away for future use, and this is an obvious case. I must confess I have an issue with the ubiquitous notion that "it's all Photoshop", and you can just take any old phone image and work magic in Photoshop. It's not that simple.
The fact is that almost all those really eye-popping product shots you see in ads and billboards aren't created in Photoshop. They are created with studio lighting, by skilled and experienced photographers who know how to produce these effects straight out of the camera.
Doing it in Photoshop is certainly possible - but with at least twenty times the amount of sheer grinding work and time spent. And it probably won't look nearly as good. The efficient way is to do it right the first time.
Yes absolutely it was a great learning for me but need to fulfill my commitment have to deliver final pics to my client, I am only worried with one thing that how to give it proper shine to my image in photoshop, but now i can not shoot again even i realised after doing shoot that i have charge very less according to type of hard work involve in this, I will remember in my future projects and take care of mentioned points.
Thank you all
you can't charge more for work that you don't understand how to do. It's only hard work because you didn't light it properly. If these were photographed correctly, the Ps work would take only a few minutes.
it was done in his place where space was very less and its a 2 light setup it is under because of detailing and design my client want, i am ready to pay if i get the result i want but along side need a screenshot and tutorial with a psd file, I totally respect the work and time involve in this.
