UNDERSTAND VISUAL BALANCE

Composition means the selection and arrangement of elements within the frame so that they express the artist's idea clearly and effectively. Often, an image will succeed or fail, depending on how well it is composed. In this webinar, Nikos will show you how to create visual balance in your images and go beyond the rule of thirds.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Creative Lighting is a philosophy of image making that sees light as the primary force in imagery. It’s about learning to see and think about light as a photographer or cinematographer does, and the craft of image making as a painter would. It is an approach to image making that favors the artist’s vision over technical knowledge.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING


“Creative Lighting will change the way you look at visualization and light forever. There are few people in this industry who have the ability to inspire and teach the way Nikos does. After 21 years in the industry, even I was inspired. It does not get any better than this.”

OUR STORY

Creative Lighting fomented at Cityscape Digital’s Shoreditch studio, the brainchild of Nikos, then CGI Director, and Creative Director Damian. They fought long and hard in the heat of the engine room (it was pretty small and crowded back then) over how to create visuals that were beautiful and exceptional. Turning to cinema for inspiration, the stunning world of cinematography started to present them with new possibilities. After a lot of research into the work of Roger Deakins, Pinterest boards, sketches and 3D tests, an in-house workshop was born: Creative Lighting vs. Mundane Realism. From there the philosophy took on a life of its own.

 
 
 

“Nikos has great knowledge of lighting, and his webinars are extremely easy to follow whether you’re a photographer, 3D artist, architect or designer. I love the way he connects the class with our daily workflow. Do you want to learn? Do you crave inspiration? Do you want to get back to being creative again? Enrol in the lighting courses today.”
