I recently launched a downloadable step-by-step video training course showing you how to create a photographic product visualization using KeyShot and Photoshop. It is called ‘An introduction to photographic product visualization using KeyShot and Photoshop’ and consists of 2h 45m of detailed step by step video with voiceover that leads you comfortably through model import over custom material creation, composition and staging, tailor-made lighting to output and final post processing with tips and tricks to get a photographic look. Wether you’re beginner or intermediate user of KeyShot, I’m certain you’ll gain new skills that will leverage your future work.
When in need of an extra layer of depth, life, dynamic and maybe even realism in your renderings, photoshop is probably your best friend. It gives you the ability to add overlays (and backgrounds) of light leaks, floating dust particles, soft glows and so forth. Combine all these elements and get a rendering that is way more interesting to look at.
See for yourself in the pineapple rendering below. Slide left and right to show the rendering before/after photoshop.
P.S.: Apply with care. It is so easy to go overboard with this. I generally tone all effects down to something like 80% when done applying them.
The pineapple model is a 3D-scan from www.blankrepository.com. A site that I linked to a few month back in my occasionally curated newsletter of links to KeyShot related resources, models, textures and more.

Sometimes it is not necessary to work in three dimensions to convey a message. For instructional animations like the one below that I did for Fender, using 2D animations combined with 3D renderings can be a quite effective way to go.
By combining the rendered IEM parts with animated line drawings, I helped Fender to show in a clear way how to install the newly released Pro Series IEMs.
