    Hi, should be great if in the Pro Tutorials you include the photo shoot. It is a very important part and it is not included in the tutorial, and in some cases there is not “Behind the Scenes”. Thanks! Phlearn you later!

    I bought several of these tutorials individually and they were very useful to me. I would recommend them (and just about any Phlearn tutorial) to anyone looking to understand more about a particular subject. The way they are taught, it is very easy to learn and then apply to any other photos you are working on.

    Here is an image I created after completing “The Human Torch” tutorial. (I am a complete noob at compositing, so I know this isn’t perfect (far from it) but it is a far sight better than it would have been without this tutorial.

    P.S. Still waiting for the Phlandle tutorial. 🙂

    There’s a lot I love about the image of the woman suspended by her hair but I am bothered by the light on her coming from a direction other than the bright window. There is a distinct shadow on her back toward the window and the highlights on her hair are opposite the sun.
