You will learn the core components of your scene's lighting.
Welcome everyone!
Soft light refers to light that tends to "wrap" around objects, casting diffuse shadows with soft edges.
Hard light will accentuate the textures and details in an object.
Ambient light is the light that is already present in a scene, before any additional lighting is added.
A shadow is the area where the light from a light source is blocked by an opaque object.
In this section, you'll learn about light diffusion and bounce.
In this section, you'll learn about light diffusion and bounce.
In optics, a diffuser is any material that diffuses or scatters light in some manner to transmit soft light.
In this lesson, I briefly go over bouncing lights as well light absorption.
Here I talk about the strength of your lights and adjusting them.
The color temperature of a light source is the temperature of an ideal black-body radiator that radiates light of a color comparable to that of the light source.
In this section I will run you through light setups, namely the three point lighting system.
In this lesson, I introduce the three lights used in the three pointing lighting setup.
Three-point lighting is a standard method used in visual media such as theatre, video, film, still photography and computer-generated imagery.
Here, I try to narrow my light sources down to just one. I'll be using bounce light to fill in the shadows.
I will attempt to wrap everything up in this section.
In this lesson, I go over my lighting setup and the function every light serves.
In this lesson, I briefly discuss light positioning and common mistakes.
This bonus lesson will quickly breakdown silhouettes and how they work.
I hope everyone benefited from this course.

This short course is here to lay the groundwork for you to have a solid understanding of lighting and the effect it has on your scene. I tried to deliver the content without leaving much room for fluff. The course format is pretty consistent and fast-paced. Understanding lighting, even at a basic level, will build and improve your overall production quality. I've experienced this bump myself a couple of years ago.
