In this title, Jeremy discusses the fundamentals of light and color from a very practical standpoint. Going back to the basics of how light works in the real world, he focuses on an often neglected subject. Intended as an introduction to understanding light and color, the lecture covers topics such as bounced light, shadows, atmosphere and camera effects, going beyond basic color theory while staying relatively untechnical. Jeremy demonstrates many practical examples of how to apply the concepts to both 2D and 3D image creation.
