These are examples of various Photoshop projects that required retouching, rendering, and/or photo compositing. Various skills are involved here, including masking, color correcting, cloning, photo merging and compositing, light and shadow effects, and more.

Many of the same skills and tools are at work with my digital art, in a more creative setting. View some examples here.
Project requirements:
Often in motorsports, a particular view of a car will be needed for some promotional purpose, and if the original photoshoot did not include that view, we may have to digitally render the correct paint scheme and decals onto another car that has the correct view. In this example, I took the actual shot from the Honey Nut Cheerios 33 car photoshoot (top image), and used it at the base to apply the desired paint scheme (Cheerios 31 car, bottom image). This involves intricate masking, stripping paint color down to pure white, then adding color, decals, highlights and shadows, etc..
