The Power of Lighting

Kyle believes that lighting alone can change the entire mood of an environment. In his project, he used Unreal Engine 5 to build a generic environment – a cabin in the woods near a lake. This project showcases the same environment including props and materials in three different types of lighting and colouring combination to portray relaxed, horrific and mystical moods. By applying different lighting to the same environment, we can observe how lighting drastically affects the mood of a scene.
