So I know there is already an "Inspiration Thread" for photography but I figured this sub forum could use it's own inspiration in the form of retouching. Here are a few good ones, you guys feel free to add more!

Great find(s), I really love the images. Is this all done in photoshop? Illustrator? A little bit of both?

I'm sure it's mostly photoshop and some 3D programs, but Illustrator is probably used for some as well.

I think the absolute best tutorial would be, how to composite elements into a scene & successfully match colour (so it doesn't look odd or just pasted in) & shadow creation.

There are some very nice Video Tuts about Composing in german, but I doubt anyone of you speaks german tongue.gif

But I bet there are some in english too. Maybe try googling for photoshop composing/compositing.
Or go directly to a video tutorial site like lynda.com and search there.

Considering that's a very specific task you won't see a "one size fits all" type of tutorial for compositing, but I can guarantee the following tools would be involved - detailed layer masks, pen tool (for creating shadows), blending layers (curves, hue/sat, selective color and channel mixer - for correcting colors). Compositing is one of those things you just have to experiment with and you'll start figuring out what works and what doesn't. The hardest part, for cars at least, is reflections. If you shoot a car in a studio and place it into a street scene it will look false due to lack of reflections, conversely if you shoot on a street and composite into a nature type background you'll run into another issue with incorrect reflections.

Anyone else got some tutorials they're hiding.

I'm officially needing a new processing style.

Just study study study and try to find any behind the scenes stuff you can. More than anything I just like seeing before/after to see how far they really can take some photos - to be honest I feel like lots of us on DS have better starting material than what some ads use wink.gif

Totally. I can never get enough of before & after. I go through phases where I think its all about the retouching more, then other stages where I think its all about the shooting more. At the moment I'm... dono. But in retrospect I ALWAYS feel I should have spent more time processing to make it just 'that' bit better.

However my true feeling is that the secret is always in the coloration & treatment. Thats where the commercial magic happens.
