In this series of lessons we will explore a variety of techniques for creating realistic lighting which can also convey a
sense of mood and atmosphere within Maya.

Throughout these lessons we will learn how to use lights and shading network modifications to create the appearance of
real light sources, as well as using lights to call attention to particular areas of our scene. This course will be
placing emphasis on efficient rendering practices, and some guidelines that you can use in your day-to-day work to help
your renders proceed as quickly as possible. We will also take some time to learn how volume primitives and 3D textures
in Maya can be used to create complex volumetric effects within our scene.
