Let there be light….

When I first ventured into 3D digital art, one of the things I struggled most with was light.

It wasn’t just in how to light particular scenes, but it was the terminology and the physics of light that I didn’t understand very well. Terms such as “volumetric light”, “diffraction” and “subsurface scattering” eluded me and made this area of 3D art a little harder to get into.

This community masterclass will help those who have struggled with these lighting terms. We’ll also go into some of the science of light to give a fuller background on the subject.

New Date: Sunday 4th of June – 20:00 BST/12:00 PDT/15:00 EDT

Duration : 1.5 hours+

Presenter : Paul Bussey – Editor of Digital Art Live
