Quest for Knowledge

The quest for knowledge never ends…especially when you’re learning blender!

I actually learned something new with this render. You can use lights in blender to control the shadows in some areas. You just give negative numbers to your lights and place them in the places that need more shadows or need to be darker.
In this render I used to area lights to have darker shadows in the middle of the book (marked 2 in the viewport render screenshoot) and front of book (1)
