It's not enough to know about the many light types available in CINEMA 4D—you need to know how and where to place them to create a desired effect. In this course, Donovan Keith covers some basic photographic lighting concepts and shows how to turn CINEMA 4D into a powerful virtual lighting studio. Learn how to reveal the form and texture of diffuse objects, and use special techniques for lighting reflective and transparent surfaces. Donovan also shows how to accurately place highlights in order to shape the contours of objects, and use contrasting light and shadow to dramatic effect.
Hi. I'm Donovan Keith, and welcome to studio lighting in Cinema 4D. In this course we'll look at photographic lighting concepts and techniques, then apply them specifically to studio lighting setups in Cinema 4D. We'll get acquainted with how best to reveal the form and texture of our subjects, as we light diffuse objects. Next, we'll tackle lighting reflective and transparent objects, along with strategies for accurately placing our highlights. Towards the end of the course, we'll explore how to use contrast between light and shadow, to dramatically light our subjects.
Now, let's get started with studio lighting in Cinema 4D.
