For all my fellow newbs, beginners, or those coming back to #dazstudio  after years and going, "WHAT BUTTON DO?" 

I present to you my limited, also beginner knowledge and collected favorite #tutorials on the absolute starting point for #lighting in #DAZ, enjoy! Hope it helps. 



1.) thinkdrawart.com/daz-studio-ir…

2.) Tip: using 3 lights in any scene is often a key element in DAZ and photography : thinkdrawart.com/how-i-light-m…

3.) More on 3 point lighting: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three-po…

4.) Using HDRI’s can also help. I often use an HDRI *and* lights in a scene (depending on how bright the hdri is.) HRDI’s called “diffuse HDRI’s” are also amazing for creating soft, yet clear light with very little noise.

example 1: NO lights, just the HRDI, rendered in less than 10 minutes pinkatron2000.deviantart.com/a…

Free diffuse HDRI’s a) www.valzheimer.info/2015/10/va…
Free diffuse HDRI’s b) lasaucisse.deviantart.com/art/…

HOW to use HDRI’s and dome: docs.daz3d.com/lib/exe/fetch.p…

5.) Some super reflective surfaces can cause noise. I tried a render with a single spot light, a reflective floor and reflective cloak. Artifacts and noise galore. Sometimes changing or lowering how “shiny” a surface is can help.

6.) Beginners guide to DAZ lighting video: www.daz3d.com/forums/discussio…

As the dumpster turd fire that is 2016 finally burns down for myself and my husband, I am attempting to get back into Art. This time, with a more digital feeling. I would like to enjoy the benefits of a Core membership on D.A. You can donate if you want to (you can leave your friends behind.

Melissa Pence is a 38 year old pink addict with a side of glitter adoration. When she isn't hepped up like a coke head on several cups of coffee, she's either attempting to try Digital 3D art using DAZ Studio and the power of her learner's tears, a wife to a giant Star Wars nerd, mother of 5 cats and three birds. She also enjoys picking random things to learn without any experience and wondering why it's so frustrating and nothing's working right and oh god is that ON FIRE?

Thank you all for the thanks :3 I usually don't reply to them because I can go on a favoriting spree and there are lots of you. Please don't take my silence for rudeness; I appreciate all the thanks-for-fav'ing I get, just don't wanna spam everyone one with, "you're welcome," over and over again. :DIcon - Pink Heart Valentines Birb Dance Happy Kirbys Vasgore SOUL [ICON] Vettaton SOUL [ICON]
