Before & After

Phlearn PRO Pinup Cola Before After

Texture or None

Not all pinup photos are perfect with a texture, that is why we give you the option to include one or not. This tutorial goes through everything you need to make a pinup photo amazing. Then we add a texture to the image making it really stand out as a piece of art.

Keeping it Classic

Stylized Dress

We cover techniques on how to accurately cut out a dress from the background, even if it contains difficult areas like fringes. You will also learn how to match highlight color to the background, making it look as though it was painted on to a blank piece of paper.

A Perfect Pinup Face

Learn to retouch a face to perfection in this tutorial while adding style. A bit of texture has been added to this photo, but you can keep your image perfectly clean. We even match the lipstick to the CocaCola bottles.

Pinup Hair

Original pinups were paintings which means the level of detail was quite a bit different than a photo. Hair should be styled and more of a shape than a highly detailed image. In this tutorial we cover how to make hair look like it was literally painted on, and add style at the same time.

Smooth Legs

All of the skin in this image has been completely transformed from its original state. After this tutorial you will be able to take any pair of legs and make them look amazing! We apply a special dodge and burn technique to really bring out the details and make them look smooth yet sharp.

    Two part? So if we buy one, do we have to come back and buy the second later?

    “Join us for this advanced two part tutorial taking our image from camera to pinup!”

  • Keith Stenhouse

    No, it is just that this tutorial is split into two one-hour long videos. They take you from the out of camera file to the final image.

  • http://profiles.google.com/bkillillay Bill Killillay

    ah, cool, thanks!

  • Phlearn. com

    That’s right, thanks for responding Keith

    I gave it a shot! Thanks for this tutorial I’ve had a lot of people ask me lately to shoot pinup stuff and I just couldn’t figure out how to edit them correctly! This came at an awesome time! I appreciate Phlearn more than you know!

  • Robert Huber

    This is excellent. I walked through the tutorial, and can’t wait to try shooting something similar on my own. One question I’m just curious about though… was there was there a deliberate reason from a planning perspective for shooting against the colored seamless background instead of something like white or gray?

  • http://twitter.com/_natashaleigh Natasha Leigh

    Just bought this and can’t wait to set up my own shoot. Love the pinup style but was never sure how to approach it in a way that was tasteful and classy. Thanks guys! x

    This is the phirst time I purchased a PRO, as I’m a quite phresh phollower and I have to say that it was money well spent :) I did a pinup shoot with my girlphriend some time ago (http://jacekwphoto.blogspot.com/2012/09/czerwony-pin-up.html – content in Polish, but photos are in a universal language :) ) and I was struggling with a painterly pheel in post so I did a regular processing on them… But now when a have a minute or two(hundred) I will give it a try and make it more old school looking :) phanks!

    is this only meant for the newest version of Photoshop?

  • Phlearn. com

    These techniques should work with most versions of Photoshop, for sure everything CS4 and newer

  • davechud

    Still working my way through the 2nd half of this Phlearn Pro, and liking it (thank you.) Constructive request though, you really pinned the idea that the detailed selection was absolutely key, but when the first method didn’t work great, you shifted very quickly to a different technique and mostly glossed over what/why/how you made the improved selection. Seems like a very strong method for getting a great selection, so any chance you can run the color range + masking details/concepts a little more slowly?

    This was a great tutorial! I’ve always wanted to do a pinup shoot but had no idea how to even start with editing it.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jay.hermosa Jason Hermosa

    I’m assuming they shot it on a colored background to contrast it from the white dress.

  • Michael Gamilla

    Just watched it and loved it. cant wait to apply to my own. thanks Aaron and Phlearn Staff!

  • Wiwerer

    Just an awesome Tutorial. Love it! I learned a lot and it inspired me for my Bavarian-Pin-Up-Series.
    Thanks Phlearn

  • Lejeune

    Hello. I have just purchased this tutorial and I would like to know if you have a video showing the lighting setup. Thanks.

  • John

    Great – My 3rd Pro Tutorial. If you want to shoot someone with
    strobes and ultimately cut them out of the background, what is the best
    color background to use?

  • Steve Cooper

    Great tutorial – here are my images based on the techniques used.

  • Inusen

More Phlearn got me out of my own slump. I was looking to learn some new PS skills but all the resources online seemed to just be rehashed and reposted, then I found Aaron/ Phlearn.

I have learned a great deal from the site, but my favorite part is referring other people in a similar situation to the site.

More As a photographer, I'm constantly working to hone my skills so I can create better and better work for myself and my clients - Phlearn Pro and the community here are an essential part of this. I've spent countless hours and dollars on photography classes but I recommend Phlearn time and time again because I haven't found a better, more up-to-date, or affordable source of Photoshop knowledge than what's available right here.

There are plenty of talented photographers who are mediocre teachers and plenty of gifted teachers without photographic talent. Aaron Nace doesn't have either of those problems

More Watching the daily free Episodes will give a great tips of a lot of technique, but u won't able to get the full picture and Phlean Pro is your complete tutorial for your photography retouching world. I love phlearn pro, it trains me from a completely novice to a level that i can freely express my idea in my picture.

I have to say it is really the best on line tutorial ever you can found. Do get the pro now!

More Phlearn Pro Tutorials are better than ice cream. I've been using Photoshop professionally for 15 years. Of all the sources of information on Photography and Photoshop I like Phlearn the best. Why? While most tutorials teach "How" to do things, Phlearn Pro tutorials teach "How" and "Why".

Now that Aaron is including concept, preproduction, and photo shoot knowledge into the tutorials you get more than a simple trick you can do. It's more like learning along side a photographer and peeking into their mind.

More I found many new and unique editing and photography ideas that have opened up my portfolio into so many new and fun directions. I really like how every element isn't just pitched as a new trick or gimmick but a group of many final elements that are layered to create a wonderful image. There is so much useful information on the web but it seems as though it is very condensed and clear on this website. The tutorial and clips are very easy to follow and help you produce your own creative ideas.

More I have only recently come to learn about Phlearn and Aaron Nase and boy, has this combo changed my world!

Having come from a CGI/3D animation background, I've long used Photoshop but in a very different way to how PS is used in photo manipulation and photography. The thing about Photoshop is that it can be used in so many different applications across multiple industries. These Phlearn tutorials are just so incredibly helpful even to a seasoned PS user such as myself.

I take my hat off to Aaron for being so generous with sharing his vast knowledge and experience with the software. I have never come across any other teacher who has been so thorough and in-depth with instruction. The tutorials are low-cost and Aaron has been so kind to offer this exceptional education to the general public.

If you have always dreamed about being able to perform magic with your photos, then you will not be disappointed with what Phlearn has to offer!

More Without Phlearn I would not be where I'm now. I spent hours watching your tutorials, enjoying the high quality and friendly atmosphere. If I need to know something Phlearn is where I look first.

You have taught me so much and you guys are just incredible for sharing your knowledge with us, not asking anyting in return. You've showed me things I hadn't even considered to think about and I have to say THANK YOU for being just awsome! I'm very proud to be part of the Phlearn Phamily!

More I have been a photographer for almost 12 years, currently in grad school and have yet to encounter tutorials that blow my mind like Phlearn's. I am addicted to downloading tutorials, even if it's material I have learned at the academy.

Aaron's easy to follow videos are perfect for serious artist. I am currently a finalist in Canon Project imagination because of the material I have learned on this site.
