We work with these lovely gentlemen out on Madeline Island in Wisconsin, who make soy candles that smell really, really nice. Today they needed a lifestyle image of their Travel Tin Candles for an email, and we only have stand-alone product images of the travel tins, like this:
We do have a great camera but it's been rainy and gray, and doing a big photoshoot with the right lighting would take a lot of time. So for now I decided to use Photoshop.
I started with a found image that was labelled for reuse with modification:
Adjusted the hue -
Increased the width of the table:
Popped on some products (after using Magic Eraser to erase their backgrounds) -
Added some more products - (creating closed tin by stretching an image of the label across the top)
Now most importantly - I grounded the objects by adding shadows -
And popped on their logo to complete the look! This image is now email-ready.
