In this module you will learn a Method for Lighting scenes in a Photographic way. The method consists of a step-by-step process, which will allow mastering the Chiaroscuro, Hierarchy of lights, physical laws and photographic rules. The render engine used is Corona Renderer, but the course is suitable for any other engine (eg V-Ray) given that the lights are implemented with parameters available in all photorealistic rendering software

By mastering the Lighting, you will be able to make the most of your creativity and imagination.
