Displaying packaging/projects in portfolio - how to do this effect

Hi,

I’m trying to build a professional portfolio. I’m really struggling on how to display my projects. I see so many designers displaying their projects in professional ways. I’m currently trying to apply a higher level role (i’m currently a junior graphic designer in-house) and I don’t want to come across as novice on my portfolio.

My instant route is to use free/paid mockups. However, I feel as if the time for relying on free mockup PSDs has passed and I’m wanting to display my packaging in the following way:

As you can see, I’m trying to use a outter glow around the edges of the packaging - however I cannot get this to work in the corners. Does anyone know how to achieve this?

If you have any professional examples from the web that I could use as reference that would be great.

Thanks so much for any help - this is my first post in this forum and I look forward to posting more.

Thank you!

Tom.
