Kim sheds some light on the subject.

The Animation & Game Design student, Kimberly Wagner, did a very good job on her Time of Day assignment in her Lighting, Shading & Effects I class. The task was to take a simple outdoor scene with stairs, a door, a jack-o-lantern and a potted plant and light it given a specific time of day. The point of this assignment is to get the students to analyze how realistic lighting works, how light bounces off of different objects and transfers color from one object to another. In addition, it requires that they study shadow, its color, degree of softness and contrast within the scene. Lighting is an important part in making a believable scene and can be very difficult to do in a realistic fashion. Good job, Kim.
