    I had a pinup style shoot planned and this helped me tremendously in the little things, making it vintage without all the generic filters out there.

    Thanks Aaron & Team! Here’s my version from this Phlearn Pro. I’d LOVE to know more about how you maintained a consistent look between all of your Pinups–or any other tips/pointers on how to keep consistency between images on such a project. Thanks!

    I rated this 5 stars because I learned a lot about masking from it. That being said, I have 9 hours invested in this and did not finish the first video yet. Learning how to get used to my new Wacom tablet didn’t help but for the smoothing of the skin tones. The masking was confusing and I would not call this a beginner course. I finally got the fringe of the dress to mask without retaining the blue background color. That was an epic win for me.
