Frequency Separation on Food & Products, are you mad. A bit excessive dont you think?
Well, actually no....
After spending many years retouching food for big household names I have found frequency separation an excellent technique for stubborn food and product retouch. When the usual cleanup methods; heal brush, cloning stamp etc dont work, I find that frequency separation combined with using the mixer brush on the low frequency layer works fantastic on food & product retouch, cleaning up the texture and smoothing out tone without seeing that repetition or patchiness from other methods.
Give it a try next time your having difficulty removing something.
- Glass and bottle work, keeping highlights clean and looking there best
- Branding removal
- Reducing and removing highlights
- Smoothing kinks and wrinkles
Why not take a look at how I've used it on my own retouch work.
