Color for Fashion
Mix the highlight and shadow colors together to get that vintage fashion look. Learn Photoshop and Lightroom methods that are commonly used for fashion images to provide a more distinguished look.
Color Complex Objects
Learn how to properly color hair and other complex objects individually while maintaining all the original detail. These advanced coloring methods will ensure objects do not wind up looking flat.
When retouching people, it’s really important to pay attention to the entire body. Most of the time it is not just the individual pores that need work, but the overall shapes. Learn how to smooth skin and keep your subjects looking their best.
Add Soft Light
The trick with adding light to an image is to match the color with the rest of your scene. Learn how to accurately judge color and create the most believable light every time.
Learn detailed retouching, lighting effects, and how to add a vintage style to fashion and portrait photos.
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.
Free Plant Textures
Learn how to cut out the included plant textures from their backgrounds and apply them to your image. Add them to the foreground to increase depth. Make it look as though they were there all along by adding a slight blur and color change.
Copy elements from one area of the image to another and transform them to feel completely original. Learn to identify areas that are too light, too dark or lacking in detail. Then, easily fix each of the problem areas.
Learn multiple methods to draw attention away from a particular area of an image, so the viewer will focus where you want them to.

This is exactly how a tutorial should be. Like all Phlearn tutorials you get a clear and comprehensive step by step guidance in making the picture but most importantly you get the chance to understand the steps, the technical approach, the “why” in each action. Money well spent and once again a big thanks to Aaron and team!
