Creative Lighting Philosophy

Nikos Nikolopoulos spends his life chasing beauty. Here he shares how the greats of Cinematography have inspired the Creative Lighting concept, and how he brought cinematic lighting techniques into an entirely different world - the virtual world.

Nikos strips back the technical jargon back to being an artist and making the tools work for you. Presenting his approach and philosophy taking advantage of Corona’s LightMix, Nikos demonstrates the importance and power of light to make or break an image, drawing from lessons learnt through cinematography, photography, the art masters and perhaps most importantly, through your own eyes. The skills taught are fundamentally software agnostic so anyone can utilise the same approaches in their workflow of choice and benefit from what Nikos has to offer - and you should.
