Default Shadows

Up until now I've been doing all of my shadows using the drop shadow feature in PSP but I've been reading about people doing cast shadows, warping shadows, etc. I've been happy with my shadows but now I'm starting to feel like I could be doing more of them.

Could anyone point me in the direction of any shadow tutorials that are out there. I know there are some online classes that are offered but I'm more interested in just a tutorial, no classes.

As I said, I use PSP (version XII, I think) but I do also have PSCS2. Although I'd prefer a tutorial for PSP, I've been know to adapt a PS tutorial to PSP.

Thanks for any help.

Too bad you missed our last PSP topic chat: it was all about shadows including cast shadows!

Anyone who attended the chat in October can give a hand to Julia??

I have two written tutorials ... Shadows - The Basics and Shadows & Light Source

I also have a pretty comprehensive self-paced class. It teaches/covers: drop shadows, gradient shadows, perspective shadows, the burn tools, and most importantly light source.

I took Miss B's class. If you do nothing else, sign up for this. A+++++++. Great techniques perfectly explained in very professional videos and text with a touch of quirky humor.

Here is a tutorial that was posted in PDP forums. I found it to be a helpful starting point to improving my shadows. The last PSP chat on shadows was also very helpful but I am not sure I could easily describe what I learned.

The tutorial look good. As far as the class, although I'm sure it's good, as I said in my initial post, that's something I'm not interested in.
