    • John Griffiths

      Omar is a superb artist and teacher. His lectures and feedback were easy to follow and helped to highlight areas of weakness in a submission. Omar showed us multiple ways to tackle lighting in different environments, the maths behind it, and tools to achieve results. It is a great course for anyone who wants to find their feet in the area but also pushes them to try new workflows and experiment.

    • Daniel Huddleston

      The course completely changed how I approach lighting! Calibrating skies, exposure, and lights for physically accurate values was a game changer.. I feel like this class gave me a foundation of knowledge which I can use to light any scene.

    • Gina Levy

      I knew the basics about the sun, point lights, spotlights, and CLUT. But to actually learn how to calibrate the sky, and go deeper into the post processing was really helpful in making my lighting pop. It really helped me think like a Lighting Artist and what steps I need to do and how to debug my lights.

    • Yaroslav Nykyforuk

      For me, course helped to break down lighting porocess into steps (it is obvious, but i didn’t think about ‘blocking out’ in terms of lighting previously), showed me how to approach it and where to start. Also it made me aware of aspects to keep an eye on, while going through previously mentioned process. Things like phisycal correctness of a sky and sun, and more artistic like accenting on some areas, simply with for e.x. pockets of light and shadow.
