  1. Excellent presentation, Julia. I’m very eager to watch your next tutorial with your in-depth workflow.
    I’m curious to know why you’ve used Smart Objects as part of your workflow. Perhaps you can explain that in your video. All the best for the New Year!

    1. Hi Steve,
      Thank you for your feedback. I’m glad you liked the tutorial and I’ll cover even more in my next one. I’m using smart objects because they help me preserve the modifications I make to a certain layer when using a plugin and this way I can come back to them and tweak them if I need to, without needing to start over. I’ll try to explain this more clearly on video. Have a wonderful 2015 and all the best!

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts and concepts involved in creating these beautiful and inspirational images. I look forward to your next presentation. Is there any other reason apart from aesthetics for the 1 x 1 aspect ratio of your work?

    Thanks again


    1. Hi Daminan! Thanks for your feedback. I’m glad you enjoyed the tutorial. The main reason I use the 1:1 format in my work is because it is a very balanced format that can emphasize the subject better and it helps me focus more on it and realize a harmonious composition. It conveys a sense of classical beauty and this helps my ideas to get to the viewer in a more direct way.
