I love spending time learning new tricks and techniques for doing fun stuff in Photoshop. That’s one reason why I went out and gave this Phlearn PRO tutorial called “Fashion” a try.

In this tutorial Aaron Nace takes us on a journey through cutting out our subject, replacing the background, matching the subject to the background, playing with blur to highlight the focus on an image, and adding magazine style text to the shot. It’s quite a bit of information, but it was so fun to learn.

My Thoughts

As I said in the intro, I really enjoyed this tutorial. My first love even before photography was photoshop, so I am always trying to learn new things and find new ways of doing things. Aaron Nace is a master at hosting these tutorials, after completing the tutorial I really felt like I had learns quite a bit. I felt comfortable trying to do it on my own, something that is pretty rare for me with advanced tutorials like this.

I was specifically interested in Aaron’s techniques for cutting out the subject and his method to adding depth of field to the shot. I was very happy with both, not only does he show you his way, but he also shows you a few other ways as well so that you can decide what works well for you. You really can’t go wrong with these Phlearn Pro tutorials. If any of the topics of this tutorial sound interesting to you I highly recommend you check it out.
