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.
