Shot and Light Balance / Step 1-2

An image becomes interesting with the correct application of all elements. To create pleasing compositions using correctly the lights, is necessary to have a solid theoretical knowledge, we note as the 5SRW method have a logical, rules and it allows us to achieve the desired result by applying the same logic in every scene. In this case I’ll show how to use a VRayLight Dome with a VRaysky and HDRI (High Dinamic Range Image).
