    I have a question about overexposing all the background in PS . What happens if I want to print the picture afterwards? Would it be possible? Thanks

  • Hello, first to express my gratitude to your video lessons, they are super thank you very much, have a question? to you: what is it called or what is put off on the floor to get the model, stack, some plastic? thanks in advance.

  • Hi Gavin. Need your expert advice. I take shots on pure white with my camera's (7D Mark II) highlight warning turned on. When I shoot, the background is pure white/blown out, but when I put the same image in LR or PS 2018 CC, the bg isn't white, if I turn up the whites, the products' color is effected. Have to use selection/pen tool to separate my product from the bg and pull the whites up all the way. I've recently turned to catalog white product photography but have general photography experience of 6 years almost. Now I have 500-700 products to shoot and this is really hindering my workflow. I use single speedlite setup with octa from top. Any tips please?
