This tutorial has proven to me helpful,in ways discussed bellow.

Vision: The artist/tutor covers a wide range of possible ways to shoot a picture,emphasising in the emotions a figure bears.
Originality: I have to admit there are many tutorials covering the specific subject,but none is so invetive as this one.Techniques such as the tinfoil in the background allow you to relive historic anime scenes and capture stunning pictures.
Technique: The tutor displays the examples with grace and crystall clear photos,providing the reader with the needed guidlines.
Impact: Right after reading this tutorial I went forth and put it in use. It helped me in many ways in an upcoming project I am currently focused.
Overall: An exquisite tutorial,highly recommended for many photoshooting techniques.

Again, another great tutorial, showing how cheap, affordable materials and the right use of them as well as a simple movable light source can enhance a photo.

The variety displayed is huge, keeping in mind that the options are endless if using the shown possibilities in many other different ways.

Both setting and result are shown and described clearly and easily to understand.
Every photograph of this figurine is a masterpiece created by an almost hilariously ironic use of simple materials.

The tutorial is a proof that it's not the price and brand of the supplies that counts but the creativity of use and eye for the right spot.

Hi I would like to ask, uhm... since I'm new to photography
For this picture
[link]

along with the sample you have in your tutorial for Light-under, did you have any additional light like front light or the room light and then did you use flash? Or was that only lit using lamp and no flash?

I was only using the lamp on the side I wanted, with no additional light :D

no :) I rarely use flash in my photograph because they make the light looks unnatural

Would the DIY studio apply for a compact digicam? I use a Sony Cybershot DSC W-55 ([link], there's no manual functionality so I was wondering if Bokeh can be achieved though I've seen some pics with Bokeh using that cam but I'm not sure how they do it... any idea or tips? like use a magnifying glass or whatnot?
