Tips and Tricks on how to manage Shadow | Sun and Sky...

i made a simple test rendered scene and tutorial on how to manage the scene environment and illumination by adjusting the value of Turbidity | Ozone | Intensity | and Sun Size which you always use in your scene especially exterior.

TURBIDITY

OZONE

INTENSITY

SUN SIZE


Tips and Tricks : if you use physical camera, you are going to reduce all the exposure of the other lights that you have in your scene and it's good idea to reduce the intensity of the sun if you already have all the other lights in the scene.

The making of Parol at Puto Bumbong . . . SVA Challenge Winner

The parol or lantern  is one of the most iconic and beloved symbols of the holiday. The earliest parols were traditionally made from simple materials like bamboo sticks, Japanese rice paper (known as "papel de Hapon") or crepe paper, and a candle or coconut oil-lamp for illumination; although the present day parol can take many different shapes and forms. The most base form of the lantern is a 5-pointed star with two "tails" at the lower two tips. Other variations are 4, 8, 10 pointed stars with the rarer 6, 16 and so on pointed stars. The parol is also traditionally made of lacquered paper and bamboo, but others are made of cellophane, plastic, rope, capiz shell and a wide variety of materials. Making parols is a folk craft, and most Filipino kids have tried their hand at making a parol at one time or another, maybe as a school project or otherwise. The most basic parol can be easily constructed with just ten bamboo sticks, paper, and glue. These lanterns represent the Star of Bethlehem that guided the Magi, also known as the Three Wise Men or Three Kings (Tatlong Hari in Tagalog).

Puto Bumbong, Traditionally made from a special variety of heirloom sticky or glutinous rice called Pirurutong which has a distinctly purple color, soaked in salted water and dried overnight and then poured into bumbong or bamboo tubes and then steamed until done or steam rises out of the bamboo tubes. It is served topped with butter or margarine and shredded coconut mixed with sugar.
Puto bumbong is the most sought after delicacies at Christmas time. During the simbang gabi or the Christmas Eve mass, people would line up to their favorite stalls outside the church just to have a taste of this favorite Pinoy delicacies.
