3D Lighting: Bright & Dark Scenes
For our intro lighting classes, we had to light a given scene to match a given reference by using as little lights as possible. I paid special attention to this assignment as I want to excel in lighting, because bad lighting can make the best model with the best textures look like bad 3D.
I used 4 lights in this scene (all spot): 1 main light, 1 rim light, 1 fill light, and 1 extra fill light for the character.
I used 4 lights in this scene also: 1 main light (spot), 1 fill light for the atmosphere (infinite), 1 fill light for bounced light (infinite), 1 extra fill for bounced light from another angle (infinite)
