Well, I made my Purse sleeves and did a photo shoot. But I wanted to make more purses that I didn't have pictures of so I did some Photoshop. You be the judge. What is real, what is a sleeve and what is Photoshop?
This is a purse that was made and photographed
These bags were sleeves over a purse and photographed
These two purses are Photoshopped panels in older photographs
I can't decide what is better. I'm not sure either of them look any better than the other. I am beginning to think that I don't even have to make the sleeves to make the presentation, as long as the image on the bag is the right size. I can cut out the panels and shoot them and "shop" them into already modeled bags. And Although the crease in the smurf bag doesn't look great, I think it actually makes it look more "real"
What do you think?
