In Chapter One of the highly rated Creative Lighting London Workshop, they come together to share with you the fundamentals of their revolutionary approach.

WORKSHOP BREAKDOWN

DAY 1 | CREATIVE LIGHTING | NIKOS NIKOLOPOULOS

The Artistic Process
Being an artist isn't easy, keep at it. Nikos shares his daily process and explain why real world inspiration is so much better than technical knowledge.

Creative Lighting Philosophy
Creative Lighting is a software-agnostic philosophy whose principles can be applied in all scenarios: day, night, inside and outside, just like in film and painting. Nikos 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.

Introduction to Corona Renderer
Corona Renderer is one of the most powerful rendering engines in the market. Nikos shares his unique creative workflow and lighting techniques for fast rendering.


DAY 2 | CITYSCAPE DIGITAL | DAMIAN FENNELL

The Imagemaking Process
Making commercial imagery is the result, whether we like it or not, of a partnership between Artist and Client (or Designer in the case of the in-house artist). Damian goes deep into how to navigate this relationship to achieve great visuals, in a session blending artistic process and creative direction skills.

The Anatomy of an Image
Analysis of the fundamental building blocks of a strong visual: composition, tone, colour, focal hierarchy.

I attended the first Creative Lighting Workshop in London with Nikos and Damian, and found it a really informative, eye opening experience. It was truly amazing to see the results that can be achieved in CGIs by applying the Creative Lighting philosophy. I was especially impressed by the lighting case studies that drew inspiration from films and the arts. They inspired me to use lighting in a new, more creative way within my work. The workshop was friendly and informal, with a group of liked-mind professionals who wanted to improve their skill set. I certainly enjoyed it, and will definitely be attending another workshop in the future.
