I am always on the search for to learn new ways of lightning my scenes.
Now I come across a site which offer Lightning guides as PDF files for free to download.
I find them pretty awesome, so I thought i post the link for others who might want to learn more about realistic lights and how to archive this in your scene.

Lighting Guides

I found the “Wastewater Treatment Facility Lighting Guide” enlightening... I’ve often wondered if my sewage was bland looking because of a lack of roughage in the diets of our citizens, or if it was just bad lighting... Now it’s clear it’s both.
Thanks, those are interesting and useful.
