I just found this excellent tutorial/article. I’m so glad I didn’t find it two years ago as I can’t imagine waiting so long for part 5, or the book. Please hurry as I’m dyin’ to learn more!
Hey frog (aka Richard Yot?)
i realy like your tutorial - helped a lot!
Right now i am working on a students project (i am studying computer science)
and was thinking of using some of it as a reference. As always websites are not that cool to use (non acedemic etc.) but anyway i just wanted to ask which companies you are/have been working, for or to say it in a different way… where did you get your knowledge about lighting?
Also i am very interested in texts about the creation of mood with lighting… So far i found some good texts from Jeremy Birn (his books are very cool) and a realy nice artikel from Sharon Calahan (“Storytelling through lighting - A computer graphics perspektive”)…
Maybe you have some more texts that are aimed on the creation of mood with lighting or know where to look?

just to reply to that last post, I got most of my knowledge about lighting through observation, although photography was a huge help in getting me to notice stuff - painting even more so for the really subtle things.
My book is finished finally - sorry it’s taken so long! It will be coming out in the spring and it has two chapters devoted to creating mood and setting the scene, as well as a chapter on composition and staging. When it comes out I will post links for anyone who might want to buy it, I expect it will be in April 2009.
wow! i LOVE this tutorial! very refined.
This is absolutely what i need. Your opening statement says that it might not be needed, hogwash, “to those who may think so”.
I am a fully fledged newb and proud of it lol :eek: and my biggest drama is rendering, i can extrude, bend, stretch and scratch my … all at the same time but rendering just simply freaks me out and it’s holding me back, Seriously…
Now that i’ve found your writings on light, i will have a good understanding of where i’m going wrong, with lighting and camera setups, thanks very much.
PS: make sure you put the book details here so i can buy it, also can i recommend a PDF version :curious:
