Blender 2.5 Lighting and Rendering

Blender 2.5 book by Reynante Martinez. Talking about Lighting, Rendering and compositing with a few Color grading tips.

“In this article by Reynante Martinez we’ll tackle a topic that is commonly misunderstood and often overlooked inside of Blender. But before we begin, I’d like to make a few remarks. First, I do not claim to be a professional color grading artist nor do I imply the following explanations as “rules” to be strictly followed. What I will try to share with you in this article are my thoughts and experiences on Color Grading using Blender.
