Casting Shadows

$34.99

This course is an intermediate study of the way light interacts with objects. We begin with the “science” or “math” of triangulating from light sources – but most of the class is about making shadows simply believeable.

This course is an intermediate study of the way light interacts with objects. We begin with the “science” or “math” of triangulating from light sources – but most of the class is about making shadows simply believeable. (ie Architects may find the demonstrated shadows do not meet detailed specifications!) 

Each lesson contains a Concept video to introduce a particular type of light/shadow; a Demonstration video to show its application in a piece of art; and a Stamped example. The latter shows *just* the shadow portion of the image, these are not actual tutorials, but they do show how that kind of light can be utilized in context of a stamped card scene. (See preview in the video below.)

The nearly four hours of video content is accompanied by PDF downloads for each lesson, as well as a folder with a number of photos for students to choose from for creating their lesson homework. A free account at PMP is required.
