How to Render objects in a white space / Limbo

A few days ago one of my students asked me about how to render a piece of furniture in a white bright space. Then I created a lesson on the topic.
The one below is the kind of image to produce:
Despite its visual simplicity, the structure of lights behind this ‘look’ can be a little bit complex and sometimes tricky.
The most important part of the process is keeping the Chiaroscuro effect under control, but other parts of the image – such as the reflections – are really important because they transmit the sense of the weight thanks to the contact with the ground.
How to keep all these aspects under control? You need a specific lighting hierarchy, made by 5 lights using Corona Renderer as a render engine. Actually, in my Corona course I have an entire module only for photographic Lighting (you won’t find anything similar) and today I want to share with you the specific scheme applied in this image:
As you can imagine, each light plays a specific role in the scene.
To tell you how to manage this situation I recorded this lesson.
