Tutorial: Mastering Lighting

In this videotutorial, Blender Guru Andrew Price focuses on lighting techniques.

Andrew Price writes:

I created the tutorial in an attempt to demystify the topic of lighting and break it down into easy to understand concepts.

I use examples of historical paintings to show how light and shadow were used to tell stories centuries ago, then demonstrate those same techniques using blender to show how those same rules apply today.

By the end of it you should feel more confident in creating lighting setups. Hope you like it :)

      There are many people that may have missed as well as those who do not know blenderguru. Blendernation is also useful for this.

      • Ron Proctor

        Yes, indeed. Calm down a bit. BN operates on a shoestring budget and they do the best they can.

    Nice tut. I was interested most about implied lighting technique. Very good tips!


    Excellent Tutorial, clear, concise and useful. I am not a big fan of cycles just yet but the overall explanation is suitable for Blender Internal as well. 39 minutes well invested watching this Tutorial.
