The Lightroom Process
In the special included Photoshop Lightroom video we cover the entire photo shoot from image to image. Seeing where the image starts at the beginning of the photo shoot and how it evolves to the final will help you to develop lighting on your own images. We take you through the lighting build-up for both the watch and the subject, showing you what each light does. You will also see how we export images, make presets, and learn about file structure.

Integrating the Bubbles
Each part of this image was shot separately with the intention of combining everything together in Photoshop. First the watch was photographed in a dry tank and the lighting was perfected. Then we added carbonated water to build up the background. All of this is brought together in Photoshop in this tutorial. You will learn to take different pieces from different photos and combine them seamlessly, such as the bubbles interacting with the watch.

All About the Details
For product photography the goal is to represent the product in the best light possible. For something as intricate as a watch, a lot of attention must be paid to every small detail. Almost every piece of this watch has been enhanced or replaced, and you will learn the entire process in this Photoshop Tutorial. The final watch image is a composite of more than six different photos, all placed together seamlessly.

How to Clean Details
Every area of the watch has to be perfect, and that means cleanup. We cover the standard tools such as the clone stamp and the healing brush and when to use one over the other. You will also learn a new technique that will allow you to replace any detail from scratch, as well as a technique to match the grain structure of the original photo.

More I discovered Phlearn not so long ago. And I have to say I got totally addicted. I'v been watching all the Photoshop episodes since from the beginning. I learned so much new stuff. And I like the 10 minutes format. Easy to digest!

Today I got my 1st Phlearn Pro, the Film Noir. Can wait to watch it...

You rock Phlearn!

More First time I purchased a pro tutorial I was skeptical because I don't normally buy anything off the internet. I had no idea what I was getting exactly, and frankly wasn't sure if it would even be worth it since theres tons of videos on youtube.

After checking out a few of the daily tutorials I went ahead and decided to purchase the blacksmith pro tutorial. I was immediately hooked on the pro tutorials. I could not believe the phlearn team gave me over 3 hours of valuable learning information, and brushes.

At first I was phlearns greatest skeptic, but now a daily follow that has purchased 8 separate pro tutorials. Do yourself a favor, save some money and buy the package, because in the end you will want to purchase all of them and they are well worth it.

There is no better learning tutorials out there.

More I run the marketing for a ski/snowboard company and this season due to budget cuts I was forced to shoot, edit, composite, and retouch our in store display campaign for 3 of the largest sporting goods chains in North America. I panicked, then scoured the internet for help and stumbled upon Plearn.

I watch a number of the free episodes and was able to handle the pre shoot, shoot, and composite, then purchased the Skin Retouching Tutorial to handle the rest. I can now proudly say my work is displayed in over 600 stores! All thanks to Phlearn. Great instructions and a great community! Go Phlearn!!!

More To start, Phlearn is amazing! I have searched the web over and over trying to find good photoshop tutorials that actually went into depth on the tools and techniques for creating the type of photos I see in my head. About six months ago I found Phlearn and am so glad I did. I'm only on my 3rd Pro Tutorial, but have already learned more than I could have imagined in that short time.

Aaron Nace is such a good, fun teacher and really breaks down every step and tool used to create his photos. Not only that, but he shows you how to do things several different ways so you can pick the one that is most comfortable for you. If you're questioning wether or not to get a Pro Tutorial or if Phlearn is right for you, the answer is YES! Thanks for all you do Aaron and all the others who make Phlearn what it is.

More I appreciate the quality/thoroughness of the pro tutorials here at Phlearn. They are a phenomenal value for the money. I should know -- so far I've purchased 11 of them.

I've purchased many photoshop tutorials and PHLEARN is (in my opinion), are the best value for the money by FAR.Love the entire Phlearn site as well. If there is time in my day to only check out one site, It’s going to be PHLEARN.

Thanks to you and your team for all you do!

More I've just joined your great Phlearn community... and just bought my first Phlearn Pro tutorial too... (The Last Athlete).

It was really great... In my learning experience, tutorials often goes up to 50 or 60% of the professional level you want to achieve (tech stuff, criteria, lightining, etc) ... the other percentage is totally up to you in your experience and perseverance in your work.... but it always seems to be certain PRO knowlege that is really hard to deduce... and it would take a large amount of hours (or days) to get there.

Although you always have to do your homework, this tutorials really give you that... specialized techinques and very practical ways to solve complex situations, and also... very important... they also train your eye and your brain to get a really good criteria to know what to look for in your images.

Thanks for your great work.

More I have been using Photoshop for a few years, but have just started my first 365 self-portraiture project. Wow, It takes a lot of work to make me look like I want to look. Once I found Phlearn, it was like an addiction. There is so much useful information on the site, and Aaron is truely talented and amazing (and a little crazy).

After watching hours and hours of free videos, I downloaded the retouching pack from the Pro Tutorials. There is so much information in there about what to look for, how to fix it, some truly amazing techniques made simple. Now, I just have to figure out how not to end up with a blue face, but artistically, I don't think Aaron can teach me that. Just practice. I am at the beginning of my photography journey, but learning by leaps and bounds, thank you Phlearn, and Phlearn Pro Tutorials.

More Thanks for putting out some of the most accessible, interesting, and informative tutorials on the web. I am simply in awe of your Photoshop knowledge and techniques. I've been a working landscape photographer since 2008 and I thought I knew my way around the program. How wrong I was! In every Phlearn tutorial I've watched I've learned one, or two, or ten new things about Photoshop. But I'm not just talking about tips, tricks, and shortcuts. Your techniques are fantastic as well. I had no idea you could accomplish so much with the simple brush tool.

But of course, technical Photoshop knowledge alone doesn't create great images. I've really gotten a lot out of hearing your theories and ideas on color and light matching for composites. It makes all the difference in the world. I can honestly say that even though I've only watched a handful of Phlearn tutes so far my portrait images are light years ahead of where they were only a few months ago.

Thanks much and keep up the great work.

More I own 18 of the Phlearn Pro Tutorials, and each one has taught me something new.

Aaron is such a great teacher, everything is explained in a way that I can understand. What I thought was once out of my reach in Photoshop is now at my fingertips. I have grown and expanded my knowledge to a point where my imagination and time are my only obstacles.

Thanks Phlearn!!
