This page shows the results of several (not-so-simple) lighting exercises. Light sources were specified directly in a RIB file with the intention of altering a viewers perception of the "mood" and/or scale of a cluster of simple plain white objects. Particular attention was given to camera placement, framing and the general composition of the objects in the scene.
