I took some time to play around with lighting today. Different colors, intensities, how close they are to the sim, what angle they're pointed at, natural lighting coming into play, etc and I found out, as someone who doesn't stage photos often, that lighting in this game is actually pretty dynamic and makes a huge difference. I figured I'd share.
(My favorite was that if you put a light in front of your sim at night and change the color to flame, orange, or yellow it creates this golden glow that makes it seem like they are next to a campfire. Perhaps a good story telling tool!)
I'll put them under a spoiler since there's a lot of them. I took these pictures in Adventureworld because I knew it was empty and would be less laggy. However, this also makes the background environment look a little eh. Oh well.
Here's the pics!
Feel free to share your own pictures that you really like the lighting in!
