Nice idea. I've done it myself (using alpha channels rather than the color
selection tool). But can be a bit difficult to implement if your subject is a
757 and the background is LAX. :)

These days it's easy to implement something similar to the chroma key
("green screen") backgrounds used by TV weathercasters. I've been
draping a bright red plastic tablecloth behind the product. Then in
Photoshop, I use the color range selection tool to create a selection
from anything red. The selection then becomes the mask for a gradient
fill layer, instantly replacing the red with a background of my
choice. This masking process is very quick, even when the tablecloth
is wrinkled and unevenly lit.
