Since sometimes it is very hard to describe what I do in written form, I decided to create a Video Tutorial for Advanced Lighting. Excuse some issues with noise / my voice being sometimes a little louder or more quiet - I'm still trying to get the hang of this ^^;

Purple Square Bullet What you will & won't learn in this video:
I'm going to show you how I did the lighting for Beneath the Tulips - keep in mind that while most of my steps are often similar no matter what image I'm using, not everything is applicable in other lighting situations. This is an advanced tutorial, so I will not be fussing over every button I press. There are some captions on the right side to help you with the main points, but other than that I will just assume you know your way around Photoshop and if you hear or see something unfamiliar know how to search for it -- if you really can't find anything, feel free to ask, of course! Finally, I just hope you're going to get something out of this and will leave a comment to let me know what you think :heart:

Overview: Photoshop / Photomanipulation TutorialsThis is an overview of the Photomanipulation / Photoshop Tutorials available in my Gallery. Some are a little old (still using PS7), but the principles are still valid (even though some of the really old ones may seem outdated aesthetically). Generally, the further down in each list, the newer the tutorials. Tutorials with this symbol youtube Icon  are video tutorials.
At the bottom, you will also find a list of possible future tutorials, a collection of ideas. If you have something I could add to this list, do feel free to comment and let me know!

Thank you so much for posting this video.  Since I only do stock photos, I never get to see how all the artists on dA manipulate my photos.  I can do some of the basics in Photoshop, but watching how you changed the lighting on my tulip picture is just really cool! I didn't realize how much attention needs to be paid to the details to make things look correct once you manipulate it.
