The beauty shoot was cool but I wouldn't call it is a walk-through.  At no point did we hear the photographer tells what or why he was doing what he was doing.  The post work was shown as such a high speed I had no idea what he was doing on the various layers.  I could get a general idea but it would have helped if he was doing some talking.

Really liked the DSLR Experiment video -- especially since it looks like they only used reflectors, and no strobes.
