Who better to teach students the fine art and craft of digital lighting and rendering than the individual who created many of the stunning lighting effects for Pixar's blockbuster films such as Brave, Toy Story 3, Wall-e, Cars, and The Incredibles? In these pages, lighting and animation pro Jeremy Birn draws on his wealth of industry and teaching experience to provide an thoroughly updated edition of what has become the standard guide to digital lighting and rendering.

Using beautiful, full-color examples; a friendly, clear teaching style; and a slew of case studies and tutorials, Jeremy demonstrates how to create strategic lighting for just about any project. By explaining not just how to use various lighting techniques but why, this guide provides the grounding graphics pros need to master Hollywood lighting techniques.

Realizing that lighting - how it's used, where it's placed, and the kind of shadow it casts - is critical to any image, Jeremy dedicates the first half of his volume to just that topic. Additional chapters cover color, exposure, composition, materials and textures, and compositing For students who want to take some of the concepts further, a web site with additional training videos is available.
