PRO Photoshop Tutorial

Glamour Portrait Retouching is completely different than normal retouching. There is much less of a focus on the individual pore, and more on the image as a whole. Working with highlights and shadows, you will be able to sculpt a person’s face in a way that will look lighting look more dramatic, and a face more interesting.

In this PRO Photoshop Tutorial, you will learn how light falls on a face, and 5 different methods of enhancing that. We even introduce a fool-proof method, that will keep you from destroying the shape of a person’s face, while still allowing you to sculpt.

Photo Shoot

A very special thank you to a great team of people who helped make this shot possible. Kim, Amber, Scot, Syed, & Zach. Everyone in the Phamily came together for a really great time, and a great learning experience.

We tried a few different ideas, and wound up grabbing my house plant and covering Amber with it. We also had a fan blowing on her to give her hair some movement, and somewhere between all of that and her contacts, her eyes started watering up.

No one could really see that she was crying, and she didn’t say anything, because she was being so professional as a model. I only noticed her tear when going through the images afterwords. Something like that, had to be paid attention to. Beauty and Sadness.

Enhancing Details

The point of good retouching is not to eliminate all the details of a person’s face, it is to ENHANCE them. If there are details you don’t want to be as visible, we cover how to take attention AWAY from them. For instance, you don’t want to remove all the pores on a person’s face, that would make them look less human. As you can see here, even in a very detailed area like the eye, you can ENHANCE the overall impression, while keeping the small details. You will even learn how to add detail in a person’s IRIS, if there was none in the original photo.

Coloring The Face

Have you ever wanted to add more color to lips, but they came out looking really fake? You are not alone, this can be very hard to do. In fact, I have only come across ONE METHOD (That I came up with BTW) That does this well. What happens when most people want to add more color to a specific area, is that they wind up accidentally destroying the natural color variations that exist. You never have to worry about that again.

Coloring Appropriately

Using the information included in an image, you can go with many coloring options. You can make greens MORE YELLOW, or MORE BLUE. You can add RED to the shadows, and YELLOW to the highlights. You can DESATURATE the shadows, while leaving the highlights vibrant. The problem comes in when you need to know not only HOW, but WHAT and WHY. A slight change in hue or saturation can make or break a photo. Have you ever looked at a photo, and thought, HOW did they get those colors? Often times it is a difference of less than 10% in either direction that will make or break an image.

Even The Ears

It is not usually ONE thing that you do to a portrait that will make it stand out from the rest, but a combination of little things. Here we show a detail in the ear. We cover how to enhance even these areas of the face, and why that is important.

    Great tutorial, I learned a ton and I followed along and produced a pretty darn good image for a first try! Thanks!

    Wonderful! I would love to see it

    Hi Aaron. I’m probably being really dumb but how is it that your healing brush works (when you start to clean up her face) when you are on what looks like an empty new layer?

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_5T3H6CLAXCEKUH33CWJREYU2IU Kevin

    great tut.. definitely worth it, glad i took the advantage during your holiday sale.. even better, i used the techniques on recent work and they weren’t beauty/fashion (although i look forward to trying them out with my latest fashion shots).  thanks, aaron!

  • Al

    Hi Aaron, I’ve been so impressed coming back to your web site almost a year later and find it now the best place to learn and get inspired~! Keep up the awesomeness please…

    one question: If after buying a single tutorial i’d like then to “upgrade” to the full package for 79.99 would be possible having the 19.99 $ off ?

  • Bastian Forster

    Hey Aaron, do I need any further plugins like Nik Software or TopazLabs to get the result? In other tutorials I bought, this wasn’t mentioned and I got really upset. Thanks for your info in advanced. Greetings from Germany :)

More Phlearn's free courses trump most of the paid options that are out there and the PRO ones absolutely destroy them. Phlearn is the only place where I've seen practical solutions and examples to the problems that photographers face on a daily basis.

Aaron's presentation of both photography and Photoshop techniques is clear, concise and enjoyable. The value you get from the texture packs and PRO courses is fantastic and they immediately take your finished products to a whole new level.

I love my weekly dose of Phlearn and look forward to the ambitious projects in upcoming PRO tutorials. Keep up the great work Aaron!

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 I have a lot of PRO tutorials, and they are all fantastic. The basic phlearn is great, but in the PRO tutorials Aaron goes much more in depth. In addition, in the PRO tutorials you can understand how to create a quality photo from the beginning to the end, and this allows also to understand the creative concept that there is behind all.

Some great skills in photoshop are explained and can be therefore applied to your shots. In one year, thanks to basic phlearn, but much more thanks to the PRO tutorials I bought, I reached a level in photoshop which I would have never thought I would have reached. :)

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 Aaron and the whole Phlearn Phamily have helped me break out the the rut of doing the same thing over and over again. It had gotten so bad that I was not even opening Photoshop anymore and I was just using lightroom. Phlearn has helped me re-discover Photoshop and have the confidence to explore new techniques that I would not have done prior to discovering Phlearn. Thanks Aaron and everyone at Phlearn!

More Living and working in South Korea, it has been very difficult to learn photography and photoshop. Without any friends, or photographers to talk to, I would spend hours browsing the internet, desperately trying to find any tidbit of information that would help me improve. All I could ever find were scraps, the odd tip, conflicting information everywhere, critique without advice, and it was as frustrating as it was confusing.

By chance I stumbled onto Phlearn one day, and was amazed at the idea of the Phlearn PRO's, jaw dropping, beautiful images that I could watch being created from start to finish. I bought one immediately and stayed up late watching it. I was blown away! I now own more than ten. Not only did I learn vast amounts of new techniques, I learned how to look at my own work with a more critical eye, I learned how to make my images believable, and I set a higher bar for myself. As a teacher myself, I really believe Aaron is a great instructor. He's always engaging, fun, infectiously enthusiastic and he holds nothing back, he makes mistakes, he corrects his mistakes, overcomes problems and he will show you what is possible if you keep trying and work hard at your craft.

Sure, other photographers offer 'tell-all' tutorials, but I have found these to have less information and a much higher price tag. Here we have a community. Wherever I am, I'm only a few clicks away from the best photoshop tutorials in the world, and I come back to them often. I'm not a professional photographer, but I love to create and Phlearn has given me the power to create images I am really proud of.

More I remember having Aaron's images in my collection of inspirational artwork on my laptop when I came to Australia to study Photography in 2008. I had no idea how that awesomeness could be created and was dying to find out. Needless to say, when Phlearn was born it was like a dream come true!

I absolutely love how Aaron is laid back and fun in his video tutorials, it just makes you feel like you're hanging out with a friend, who's teaching you some cool stuff - it's easy to comprehend, it's not tiring and every video is jam packed with golden nuggets of priceless information. The entire website is full of brilliant educational materials.

I wish Phlearn was created 5 years ago, it would have saved me a lot of time learning Photoshop!

Great job! The entire Phlearn team, you guys are amazing! Keep up the great work!

More I've been following Aaron's work since the days of the Flickr self portraits. I always left wishing I knew how he made those amazing images and feeling inspired, but inadequate. With Phlearn, I am learning those techniques and more! Not only does Aaron share his deep knowledge of Photoshop, he does it in a way that makes me feel as if I am sitting across from a friend. His delivery is at a great pace; moving quickly but making sure to explain the more difficult concepts fully, while not wasting time with endless repetition.

With some tutorials on other sites, the only way to use the lesson is on the image given. Phlearn tutorials leave me thinking of how I can use the techniques in other shots I've made. Phlearn lessons are not the standard Photoshop fare, but a much deeper learning experience. Aaron looks at achieving his goal in multiple ways and shares that unique insight with his viewers. Many of these "out of the box" techniques have been the most useful I've added to my Photoshop arsenal.

The abundance of free tutorials is amazing and the Phlearn Pro tutorials take editing to a whole new level! For an incredibly reasonable fee, I've learned not only how to fix/enhance an image, but a whole new way to approach Photoshop!

I look forward to seeing how the Phlearn Phamily grows! Thanks for all of the inspiration!

More Phlearn pro tutorials are exactly how I wanted a tutorial to be. Fun, extended, and super informative. I really like the way Aaron teaches, he's is the teacher I always wanted to have but never could find. For years I'm roaming the net for good quality education on photography and Photoshop but I always get lost or bored after a while.

Since I know Phlearn, I always look out for the next episode. I'm hooked! Thanks Aaron for being such an inspiring tutor.

You only need new gear if you can define exactly how your current gear is limiting you and how the new gear would remove the limitation. If you can’t the money would be better spent on workshops and other forms of training.
