Amazing stylized outdoor portraits.

This Phlearn PRO Tutorial gives you the knowledge and understanding you need to shoot, combine and retouch to make your outdoor portraits amazing.

  • Extend Your Frame

    Learn how to use multiple source images to build an image that captures the entire scene. This technique is similar to creating a panoramic image and helps you avoid distortion while shooting at lower apertures.
  • Color Correction

    Remove the complexities from correcting colors in shadows, mid-tones and highlights. At times, highlights are too warm or too saturated and need to be treated separately from other areas of an image. Learn how to correct color and restrict your changes to specific areas.
  • Replace Any Sky

    You will be able to use these advanced selection techniques to add a new sky to any of your images using Photoshop. This Phlearn PRO Tutorial includes 2 sky images to work from.
  • Create Light Sources

    Easily add your own light rays and learn the best methods for making them blend seamlessly into your image. Adding light with Photoshop is a great way to bring atmosphere and attention to your images.

Big picture. Small details.

We take you through the entire process, from shoot to edit, so you can learn each detail required in creating a truly unique outdoor portrait.

  • Work in Lightroom

    This tutorial includes a special 15-minute section on Lightroom covering the photo shoot from start to finish. Learn about the most important parts to shooting an image like this—from building up the lighting to making multiple versions of your images.
  • Create HDR Images

    Give your images a more cohesive appearance from the darkest shadows to the brightest highlights. Learn how to combine multiple exposures and create high dynamic range (HDR) images, giving you a perfect exposure every time.
  • Paint by Hand

    Sometimes you will want to get rid of an object in your image but will not have enough information to use tools like the clone stamp or healing brush. In this tutorial, you will learn how to paint by hand to completely re-create areas of your images from scratch.
  • Remove Distractions

    Refine your images by removing unwanted distractions. Master multiple techniques that will allow you to remove literally anything leaving only the focal points you decide.

    Pulled this one out of the Archives and gave it a try. I just listened to Aaron go through the process as i followed along. Great tricks using double exposures to combine them to get alot of great details back. I skipped some of the advanced stuff as i don’t own a tablet. But the end image looks awesome to me.

    By now this was one of the best Pro tutorials I’ve seen on Phlearn.
    Fixing exposure in the first steps was really interesting to me. I also liked replacing the sky. I always used to use color range once… but using it again for getting more details back was a brilliant idea… Thanks!

    sweet tut! I liked learning how to use color range to not only select large areas, but also how to get the small details, like in the sign.

    I’m just eating up these tutorials, I love them! This was one i was really keen to complete as i really loved the image and style. Here’s my completed image from the tute. Thanks Aaron and Phlearn, you guys are helping me to find a creative outlet I’ve not had for a few years, and finally learn Photoshop. Can’t recommend you highly enough, in fact a few of my colleagues have signed up 🙂

    I love Phlearn tutorials, having several, Aaron’s instructions have allowed me to soak it in and then use what I learned in other ways to achieve the desired vision in my head. I was a novice at PS having learned photography back in the day of film. I bought several Phlearn tutorials that I thought covered enough different paths and approaches to editing. After watching this tutorial, I leaped out and attempted to apply my new knowledge. This is my result, Mach-Beauty”
