As Creative Lighting ‘s team notes, they are image-makers, innovators and visual storytellers. Their goal is to teach you how to paint with light creatively and create emotional, inspiring imagery of architecture.

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. The team offers online lighting courses and masterclasses as well as mentorship programs and corporate packages.

Using the power of Light Mix in V-Ray and Corona, artists and designers can visualize their ideas even faster and more effectively.

LIGHTMIX is a powerful tool that allows you to easily adjust the color and intensity of your lights both during and ”more importantly” after rendering.

– Gobo 4K Collection: Gobo is a physical template, most commonly on steel or glass, which is placed in front of a light source to alter the shape of the light onto a surface. In the virtual world, Gobo is a black and white map placed at 3ds max standard lights (target spot/direct) as a projector map to control the shape of the emitted light without the need of a geometry. Lighting Designers typically use them with stage lighting instruments to manipulate the shape of the light cast over a space or object. For example, to produce a pattern of leaves on a stage floor. The collection will be available to download after registration.
