  • Become the Director

    Learn different tips and tricks for posing your model to make them look amazing and create a truly convincing levitation effect.

Combine each photo easily.

Follow along and learn the best methods to composite, mask, color correct, create light rays and dust, dodge and burn, liquify and levitate.

  • Plan Your Vision

    Every Photoshop project should start by creating a plan of action. This is extra important for composites. See how to identify what to keep, what to get rid off, what to combine and what to enhance.
  • Make Advanced Selections with the Pen Tool

    Sometimes the best way to create advanced selections is on your own using the Pen Tool. This Phlearn PRO Tutorial includes a Bonus Pen Tool Video with in-depth instructions.
  • Create the Ultimate Composite

    When creating a multiple image composite, you may encounter areas of your photo that require some special attention. Learn how to complete a complicated task by breaking it into smaller tasks that are more familiar.
  • Tone Your Color

    Learn how to color tone the image to create a more cohesive, artistic feel. We show you how to color small areas of the photo, like this rose, drawing attention and adding style.

  • Add Dust and Particles in the Air

    With the included Phlearn Custom Photoshop Brush, you’ll be able to easily add natural dust and particles in the air to any image. Use this method to add glimmer and sparkle from light sources giving your photos that magical look.

    Hi Aaron,

    I must say I love your work and i’m delighted to see you do a levitation tutorial. I just purchased and watched the first part of the tutorial and immediately I had a question for you.
    Where can I get a bean bag, or crash bag as you call it, that big? Could you post the link somewhere?

    Thanks,
    Arthur

    This looks so cool. Can’t wait to check it out.

    Most of what we teach is manual so yes, but there will be features that are not available in CS5. We highly recommend updating to the Creative Cloud program and you can get the latest Photoshop and Lightroom for 9.99$ a month or lower!

    Excellent tutorial for levitation still images.

    I would have given it 5 Stars if it included the After Effects workflow that you mentioned on CreativeLive, which really makes your composites come to life.

    Maybe a follow up tutorial detailing the After Effects segment would be nice in the future, I’m sure there are many others that were memorised by this effect.

    As always your teaching and videos are the best i have ever seen! For the final images I prefer ‘portrait’ orientated image. The image with the rose gives me the feeling that there is something pushing into her back, rather than the whole body levitating. The other image gives me the feeling the woman is going to fall to the floor rather than levitate, perhaps because the hair especially seems to be being propelled upwards by gravity. It might have been interesting to take photos of her with and without clothes, unclothed while falling, to give her natural balance to her posture, and then clothed while suspended to allow clothes and hair to fall as though gravity is affecting her the way it would if she was gently levitating, then combining the imagery within Photoshop.

    Excellent course. I have never tried levitation photography and this is a great course to introduce someone to that style of photography. I have attached my results from the first lesson. I did a few things different (like adding the image in the mirror). I can not wait to shoot my own and try out these techniques. Thanks!
    P.S. I, too, would like to see the After Effects composite technique explained some time in the future!

    I haven’t even bought it yet, but I know it’s going to deserve those 5 stars if not more once I do actually watch it. I am mesmerized by the fantastical qualities all of your work has, especially these. Cheers!

    I love this pro tutorial! Pretty easy to do as well. I wish that Aaron had gone through a few more details about the actual shoot because I ran into some problems on my shoot that would have been nice to know ahead of time. I am grateful for Phlearn and all of their help!

    This is great. Levitation 2 is the easiest for photoshop. Leviation 1 is the most fun, creating light rays. It’s wonderful for noob to photoshop, I didn’t get too lost. Sometimes I had to start over because I wasn’t getting it. The videos are great as I can rewind and see what I missed out.

    I bought another of your tutorials, and am considering buying this one too as they are great.
    I note that you have mentioned in one of your comments below that you can get CC for US$9.99/month. It is worth noting that this is the USA price – other countries get charged differently by Adobe. For example, to get CC in Australia, we get charged AU$57.99/month for the same product. Sadly, this is simply Adobe using it’s ability to rip off non-US people.

    I bought the tutorial, but not full my expectations after having seen the others I’ve purchased and have been surprising. I am sorry.
