About HDRI, this is the best tuto

So, when I create my little pinecony-bob, and add the dielectric material to it, and render it out, i have some caustics but the object itself looks black almost like it's not lit. I've tried messing with a lot of settings, but it never lights up properly. Thoughts?

whooo Excellent!!!!!!!!
