What about the cool tools available – such as radiosity and
realistic render engines – don't they give great results?
Yes and no.
YES, when you start with good lighting.
Absolutely NOT when you use these tools to enhance an existing
mess. Years of experience have shown me that what you put into
a fancy tool is exactly what you get out of it!
Don't I need a expensive 3D software to get better lighting?
NO, you don't! Software is nothing more than a tool. Software
won't fix poor lighting.
Don't I need a super-fast, monster computer?
Nope. Again, your computer is just a tool. You can produce
exceptional lighting with an older computer, as long as you
know what you're doing.
I figure it out from a free video tutorial or free e-book?
I'm sorry to tell you that it's just not gonna happen. As with
any other skill, true mastery of DAZ Studio lighting takes combining
the right training with practice and repetition.
It's that simple.
Can't I do this on my own?
Sure, if you're willing to struggle for years, just like I
The lessons I'll teach you will shorten your learning curve
and literally shave years off your 3D lighting
Plus, if you're working on your own what do you do if you get
stuck? I used to waste hours on fixes that experienced
artists could solve in minutes.
How do I know all this?
I've been coaching DAZ Studio artists for a decade, and I've seen the same
patterns over and over.
Those who really make it as artists are those
who embrace new knowledge and put it into action with the
right kind of supervision. In a really short period of time,
these guys really GET it.
