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.”

NATURAL LIGHT

WORKING WITH MULTIPLE LIGHTS


Learn how light affects the quality of a place and how it's related to emotions and moods. By understanding the power behind the natural light, you’ll learn to create more dynamic images.

“A room is not a room without natural light.”

— LOUIS KAHN

 
 
 
 

“The Creative Lighting workshop for me personally made me think creatively again. In the past, I found it was easy to get tied up with the technical settings of a program and churn out very similar looking bland work. However, I gained a change in mindset from the workshop and a new way of looking at the composition and lighting of each individual shot. I have taken this unique process and used it in my work, and I believe it is better for it. I have more passion to create interesting, beautiful images.”


— Iain Bennett, Envisage 3D

- Creative Lighting philosophy can be applied to any software. We will breakdown our commercial and concept work that we created with V-Ray, Corona and Maxwell Render. We strongly believe in the power of the artist and the software is just a tool for us that allows us to create art and tell our stories like a painter has his brushes to paint. The focus of this workshop is creativity, lighting, and storytelling, it's not a technical course but you will also learn unique workflows to improve your production and many tips to render faster, much faster. We chose 3ds Max and Corona Renderer to demonstrate our methods and you can apply everything back in any other software you like.
