Selectively crushing blacks

Postby appleguy on 07/26/2017, 5:51 pm

Hi guys Ive created a spec commercial for Bentley and need some advice on the best way of tackling this problem.
I basically need to make the background and floor jet black without affecting the car too much.
Also I need to keep as much as possible the haze created by those hanging lights, if I crush the blacks too
much sometimes the haze vanishes and they just look like hanging white rectangles.

I figured the best way would be to draw a mask around the car and rotoscope it but is that the
best way? Can anyone suggest another method?

Thanks in advance.
