The subject appears normal and familiar. 5 uses a low-angular direction. We still recognize the subject as familiar, but the lighting is obviously strange, especially considering the lack of a fill source. 6 uses the “spooky flashlight” dramatic lighting effect. It makes the viewer ill at ease because of the subject’s unnatural appearance. 4: A normal lighting angle like the sun or a ceiling light. 6: A low lighting angle. angle. Unusual, but seen during Very unnatural and strange. sunrises and sunsets.
Photometric lights, for example, cannot be used with basic lights in MAX. It is, therefore, unlikely that an artist will use photometric lights unless the scene calls for extreme physical accuracy. We’ll discuss photometric lights more in Chapter 9. Note: Bear in mind that it is the look, not the physical accuracy of the lighting model, that matters to producers, directors, and supervisors. The production reality is that any method you can use to create great lighting is valuable. If it is quicker to render and still looks as good, it is more valuable.
In this case, sunlight takes a longer path through the atmosphere. Regardless of the calendar month or hemisphere, winter sunlight is always lower and closer to the horizon than summer sunlight, resulting in a lower average angle in winter and a higher average angle in summer. Spring and autumn light are phases between summer and winter, so the light source will be somewhere in between the extremes of summer sunlight and winter sunlight. If you plan on lighting a scene within one of the polar regions, perhaps it’s best to go to the library and start studying geography!
