Ok, it is officially released! First course for CGI artists and 3D for photographers from +Ilya Plotnikov  .
This is a future of commercial photography, a mix of 3D rendering and a real photography. If you like this or not - it is coming, and you can either go with it or be out of business. 
I am serious guys - just look around on product AD photography: 3D is everywhere. and this is only a beginning.
I am going to get  3DS Max free student license and learn this stuff myself (more about this on FAQ on the course) . 
More about the course here: https://www.photigy.com/course/basic-photography-for-cgi-artists/
P.S do not forget it is 35% off on it for 4 days!

For me, it is "How to FLY" - with a demonstration!

It's a simple trick, once you get it.
You just throw yourself at the floor, and miss.
Ford Prefect filled me in on the technique, when we were on a quick towel-buying spree once.

The Lighting Magician
Introduction
I am completely self taught. I don't know the rules, nor do I care about them. I don't follow the herd, I do it my way.
That’s turned out to be invaluable in what I do. It has allowed me to experiment, see outside the borders, challenge the authorities and create a stunning photography style that is crisp, sharp and crystal clear.

I’m inspired by progress and movement. I’m incredibly persistent and never take "less than perfect" for an answer. If I don't have the right tools, I'll build them myself. I like to make stuff happen.
 

My educational photography projects:
My e-books and video tutorials:

P.S Sorry to everyone who sent me an email with photography related questions and never got my answer. I simply can't answer to everyone, even if I'll work full day answering your questions.

Please submit your question to our forum:  Studio Photography Forum
