Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Natural effects, part of Learning Tiffen Dfx.
- While many of the lighting effects that Tiffen offers…are designed to simulate studio-type lighting…there is a good collection of natural lighting effects…meant to simulate natural conditions…that could occur in the wild.…Let's bring in a couple of video clips…and I'll place those into one composition.…There we go.…Let's drive through that frame.…And we'll make this a bit bigger.…Now, some of the options here are pretty extensive.…
Let's go down to the Dfx category and twirl down light.…All the ones you learned about before, such as Ambient Light…can be used, so if you just want to boost the overall…ambient lighting levels in the scene you'll notice…that the sun and the skyline are getting brighter.…And I particularly like how that light transfers…to the actual foreground here where the darker elements are.…That's a pretty cool effect,…but let's simulate some other conditions.…
One of those options is an Ice Halo.…Ice Halos are designed to create patterns.…You can position this and adjust the overall brightness…
