New BlenderCookie Tutorial, By Me
August 22, 2012

Hey guys! Just to let you know that BlenderCookie.com just published a tutorial I authored on how to improve your renders by applying simple photography notions.
Pardon Sintel’s hair. She’s been out of work for a while (“bloody recession!”), which is pretty much why she agreed to help me in this tutorial in the first place.
It covers why you should always play with the focal length before settling with your camera position, other things that influence the Depth of Field aside from the aperture value so that you always make an informed decision on how much blur you want around your subject, and finally why you should always do at least some post-processing on the raw image that the render engine gives you.
I’ve learned so much from the tutorials from BC over the past couple of years that it is really exciting to be able to contribute with something as well. I hope you guys find it useful!
