Gods of the Nile Portrait Retouching

Portrait Retouching

Help people look their best.

Frequency Separation

Retouching involves removing blemishes and smoothing skin, but that can make skin look like plastic. Many techniques destroy skin texture in the process of smoothing skin. Use the included Frequency Separation Action to make skin perfect and keep detail at the same time!

Portrait Compositing

It can be difficult to capture the perfect portrait in one frame. Often times there will be elements you want to change. Learn how to combine multiple portraits together to create stunning images.

Learn Continuous & Strobe Lighting

A photographer has many tools at their disposal, and the more you learn how to use, the more options you have. Creativity can flow freely when you are unrestricted by gear or technique. Learn how to combine multiple types of light sources to create stunning lighting effects.

Dodge & Burn

You may be surprised to see what is hiding in your images. Learn to enhance detail in a photo by carving out deep highlights and shadows.

    My heart jumped when I saw the concept. I was absolutely enthralled when I saw the lighting setup. It is brilliant and the results are beautiful. Before Aron commented on it, I noticed the 4 x 6 white board being hoisted up on light stands to be positioned above the subject. Never thought of that before. I’m going to try that. I loved the whole collaborative effort. It is stunning. Aron and his creative team is so creative.
