Chapter 12. Working with Light > Backlighting, Flares, Light Volume

Backlighting, Flares, Light Volume

“Kiss of love” is not a technical term. It is attributed to Stu Maschwitz from when he supervised Star Wars, Episode One: The Phantom Menace at Industrial Light + Magic. “I still use that term today,” he says. “It's a great way to get an artist to think of a shot as theirs. Examples of kisses of love are reflections in things that might not strictly need it, aperture flares for lights leaving the frame (carefully matched to reference), or animating a starfighter pilot's head to turn as he banks.”
