PRO Photoshop Tutorial

In this advanced Photoshop Tutorial, we cover how to cut someone out of their bakground, reposition them, add body parts, blend them back into their background, and remove all distractions while we are at it, including an entire full length window. If that doesn’t sound awesome to you, chances are you have never tried to make someone float in a photo. You are going to learn about balancing a person’s pose to make them seem more natural, and how to transform the background to allow the person to interact with it.

Photo Shoot

This photo shoot was a ton of fun, and a bit scary. We are in an abandoned house, overgrown in the woods. Parts of the house are collapsing around us, and there is graffiti and broken glass everywhere. The concept was sketched out in depth before the shoot, so everyone knew what needed to happen. We decided to use the window light as a secondary light source, and a softbox as the main. If these lights are out of the shot, the can read the same as if a window were just outside of the frame.

Working with Light

There are a few great techniques that will allow light to look like it is spilling into a photo. This is a very popular look with photographers, as it gives a photo a lot more atmosphere. You can try to do this in camera, but often it is more effective to do it in Photoshop.

Learn How to Bring Your Subject Into Their Environment

When working with a concept such as this one, often it is very important to make a story, or at least have the photo make sense in some way. If you are going to be defying the laws of physics, that is ok, but you can’t ignore sense. For this photo in particular, I wanted the model’s hair to be very long, and supporting her. The hair has to come from SOMEWHERE. It would look silly just glued to the ceiling. For this you have a choice – do you attach it to something on the ceiling, or force the viewer to ask where it is going. Often times this can have a lot more impact. I decided to cut a hole in the ceiling, and pass the hair through it. You will learn how to do that too.

Removing Distractions

Often times, it is not about what you decide to include in a photo, it is what you decide to exclude. If you don’t have an option during your photo shoot due to your environment or other factors, you have no option but to remove them in Photoshop. This process can be very difficult if you haven’t learned the tricks on how to make it easy. As you can see below, we removed an entire full length window. This makes the image quite a bit more simple, and keeps the viewer’s eyes on the subject.

More I am currently a graduate student in Art and Design and Phlearn is my number one resource for Photoshop and Photography tutorials. When comparing Phlearn to other training sites, the first thing which stands out is Aaron's passion for the subject matter and teaching it to others. When I was in Chicago I stopped by to check out their studio. The staff at Phlearn couldn't have been nicer to take the time out of their schedule to give me a tour and talk to me.

The tutorials are much more than the technical way to create an image. They help you think about ways to solve and make your own photos. Where other sites teach about the tools. Aaron teaches how to use them in a successful manner. Although I have only been serious about photography for the last two years, I feel the biggest improvement in my craft started by watching Phlearn.

More WOW. I'm not a PS guru at all and do most post editing in Aperture...BUT...these tutorials and textures are amazing.

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 I went to university for photography, and while I loved it there and learned a lot, what I learned in the photoshop end came no where close to what Aaron's tutorials have taught me.

I have purchased more than half of the tutorials and have more often than not, came out with a whole bunch of new tips and techniques that I wasn't aware of or familiar with. I find myself saying out loud "holy crap that's so awesome" or "oh my god I wish I knew about Phlearn years ago" and other things of the like many times throughout the videos.

Aaron makes the tutorials even more entertaining by being silly and fun! I've had numerous laugh out loud moments. I highly recommend purchasing any and all of the tutorials!

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 The internet is a wonderful thing. Without it, it would have been difficult for me to learn everything that I have.

Aaron has created an amazing resource for people to learn Photoshop. It's a new world, and Phlearn is leading the way in teaching the next generation of image makers. Never stop learning!

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 Phlearn takes you step by step on each video going back of items so that you dont have to keep looking in a book. A friend first told me about Phlearn and he and I have told anyone we know about them at the time I was in a class on photography the instructor told all of us point blank that while we had to learn how to edit our own photos it that part of the class would be self study because she did not know how to use photoshop.

Using Phlearn I revamped their ideas with my own photos. I passed the class with an A. After the class I was asked by the instructor if I wanted to teach a photoshop class....My answer was Phlearn.com. I am told the photoshop part of the class has gotten a lot better then it was in my day all thanks to Phlearn.

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 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!!!
