If you hang around long enough in stock photography sooner or later you will start to get some isolated shots to add to your portfolio.
I have read some very interesting methods that people use and many of them have excellent results.
I know the easy answer that you hear a lot is " whatever works best for you" But what if what works best for me is what I have learned to get the job done but really isn't the best or easiest way to do it.
So how about some good old interaction communication here.
What works best for you?
What have you tried that doesn't work.
I used photoshop for the jelly, made a solid white layer, removed the original background the best I could and then merged them together.
I'm in no way saying that's the best method but it's what I have...
Best thing is to start in the beginning by choosing a good background for whatever you are photographing (e.g. white backround for shots of everything except white). You can then go into photoshop choose select > Color Range and use the eyedropper tool to select that white background. You can slide the 'fuzziness' slider to extend or reduce that selection. That's something that used to work fine for me. Hope it helps :)

Sooo it starts with an idea that in my mind might make an interesting photo.
The concept of cash being hard to get.
Or the risk involved in dealing with money.
But there is also risk involved when trying to work with a live loaded trap and then sticking your fingers in it to put some cash on the trigger. "ouch" Actually what I said when it went off was a little more dramatic but you get the idea.
So what I did after that was to put a block of wood on the trap so if it went off again it would not hit my already tender fingers.
Then when I thought it looked good I removed the block and took the shot.
