PRO Photoshop Tutorial

If you are interested in shooting Vintage Fashion images like the ones you see gracing the pages of Vogue, Elle, V, and W Magazines, this tutorial will show you how to get from a snapshot to the final image. Learn every step along the way, going from Lightroom where we create a custom preset that is yours to keep, to Photoshop where you will learn how to identify and fix distracting elements.

Take a look at the Step-by-Step animation below and you will see that we start off with an image that is far from incredible and turn it into a work of art. You will now be able to do the same with your images.

Bonus: 2 Free Textures, 1 Brush, and 1 Lightroom Preset.

Learn From Start to Finish

Color and Light

Fashion images often involve a lot of color subtlety, it is what sets them apart from editorial images. Most of the time, the highlight and shadow colors have been completely changed. There are usually many colors mixing together to make the final image have that “Vintage Fashion” look.

You will learn how to work with color in a very easy way, including instructions in both Photoshop and Lightroom.

Adding Details

In this image we identify areas that are too light, some that are too dark, and others that don’t have enough detail. Then we go in and fix each of the problem areas Step-by-Step. In this example we copy the flowers from one part of the image to another, and transform them to make it look like they are originals.

Independently Color Objects

In this image we go through a great method for coloring complex objects such as hair. If you have ever tried to do this sort of thing you may notice that the end result can come out looking flat. That is because color does not change uniformly from highlight to shadow. You will learn how to properly color and avoid this problem all together!

Drawing Attention to Your Subject

We include 2 Free Textures for you to add to the foreground of your images. In this photoshop tutorial, you will learn how to to take a normal photo of a plant, cut it out of it’s background, color it correctly, blur it, and add it to the foreground of another image. This will give the effect that the camera is shooting through leaves, and will add depth to the image.

You can also use this effect to draw attention away from a particular area of an image, so the viewer will focus where you want them to. In this image, we cover up part of her dress because it is so light that it is a little bit of a distraction from her face.

Add Soft Light

The light that is coming in from the right side of this photo is completely fake, it was done in Photoshop. The trick with adding light to an image is color matching it to the rest of the scene to make it believable. You will learn how to accurately judge color and how to pull this effect off every time.

Free Lightroom Preset + Brush

If you are a lightroom user, all you have to do is load the free preset on your images and it will transform their colors to give them a Vintage Fashion feel. We do cover all of the settings so you can apply them in Adobe Camera RAW in Photoshop if you prefer. We also include a great soft edged brush that is perfect for editing skin if you use a Wacom Tablet.

Skin Smoothing

When editing an image that is not a headshot, a lot of people look over skin retouching. Most of the time it is not the individual pores that need work, but the overall shapes. You will learn how to smooth skin in Photoshop for this type of image. It is quick and easy and makes a huge difference!

Free Plant Textures

These plants were photographed in the Phlearn Studio and are very high quality images. You may use them for what ever you see fit. Because they are photographed on a white background, they are very easy to cut out of their backgrounds and apply over other images. In this tutorial we use these plants in the foreground to add depth to the image. A slight blur and color change and it is as though they were there all along!

More At first I thought this PHLEARN guy was off his ROCKER and had a lot of girlfriends. I quickly realized he means business. Phlearn is our go to resources for all things photoshop.

'Phlearn It' has become part of our every day vocabulary. Keep up the great work Aaron...you whacky b@stard.

More Even if you feel comfortable with your photoshop skills, the Pro tutorials will always show you new stuff and things u would have never come up with yourself. They make your work/hobby so much easier and Aaron just makes you want to start with the same thing right away. He makes you smile quite often as well which makes the tutorials phantabulous !!! I simply love Phlearn and the Pro tutorials are just the icing on the cupcake. They are well worth the small amount of money !

More Without Phlearn I would not be where I am 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 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 I have been a follower of that "aknacer" since I finded him on Flickr years ago. His photos was so surreal, provocative, and super, SUPER realistic. I didn't know how he did that. But I know now (just a little).

On the PRO tutorials, Aaron explains absolutely everything about the creation of one of his images. You choose what edition do you want to learn, you pay, you watch, and you know. Simply like that, better than a college class, and a lot cheaper. It's perfect!

More I met Aaron at B&H in NYC for a free lesson on retouching a portrait and I was completely blown away by his skills, his style and -of course- enthusiasm! Then I follow the guy on twitter and he announces that he's launching "something" called Phlearn! I give it a try and I became addicted to "phlearn" something new almost every day. Then, he launched the first Phlearn PRO and I became addicted once again. Nothing is left out, he tells you EVERYTHING he knows while he's doing it! You see him doing the stuff step by step, explaining it to you and then you do it and magic happens!! I actually keep notes with the minutes and seconds of the videos of stuff I like to keep for future references (like how to apply some make up or how to put light on a fairy's wings) :D

Phlearn PRO tutorials are phenomenal. Almost all I know in photoshop is thanks to those tutorials. I was completely lost before this, I had some skills but without direction and since Phlearn I've been able to apply Aaron's techniques to my own style and I'm more than satisfied with the results.

I gotta warn you, you'll get used to Aaron's energy and style and it's going to be hard for you to go back other tutorials from another artist.

More Hi, my name is Jandrie, and I am a phlearnoholic. I have downloaded a total of 30 Phlearn pro's, and every single one of them has been great. They go into detail, from start to finish. They don't only show the cool things, but also take you through the less exciting bits of making a great image. I have learned to take my time, and think about the image, does the image make sense.

The Pro Tutorials also showed me what was possible in photoshop, which is very handy when doing a shoot, so you know what you can fix afterwards. It also shows a great attention to detail. Since watching phlearn, my images have improved out of sight, and it's all down to Aaron and the team. I would say it's almost like having an unfair advantage. I can thoroughly recommend Phlearn PRO.

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 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 People generally dont like being wrong, even worse we dont like admitting we were wrong.

I had been watching Phlearn for about a month or so before I bought my first Pro Tutorial. I had learned and grown so much just from the free daily shows I felt like I was getting way to much for free so I decided i wanted to support Aaron by buying a tutorial. So i picked one that looked interesting, thinking that for the price i would maybe learn a few extra tricks that didn't happen to make it in the daily show (or had been done in the archives). I was wrong. Very wrong and I will happily admit it!

I still use what i learned in that first tutorial in a large portion of my images along with all the other tips and techniques I've learned in all the other tutorials I've purchased since. In fact, there isn't an image I've made recently that hasn't had a touch or more of Phlearn influence and i couldn't be more grateful. Phlearn continues to help me get my images to where I want them to be, and also shows me where I've never thought of taking them.

I really can't express how valuable these Pro Tutorials are, at any price!
