Hi, everyone.

I just wanted to share my latest project.An opportunity to make a house with a patio, something that I had wanted to do for a long time and now I hope I don't come back in a long time. At least, until I improve my computer since the render times have been a nightmare XD.

The initial idea was to make the entire house but the arrival of new work and a little bit of loss in motivation have made me decide to finish it sooner. Nevertheless, I think that some images can be interesting if someone has to do a similar project.


The models are a mix between designconnected, megascans and my own models. The tree in the patio is: https://3dsky.org/3dmodels/show/klion_ginnala_acer_ginnala_1

The programs I have used are: 3dsmax, Coronarenderer, affinity photo.

I think the focus given to the yard and the lighting are extremely great.
Would love to hear more about lighting of this scene as well. Great work!

Hi Gabriel, this is fantastic. I love the lighting and I've noticed it's more or less consistent across all the projects on your behance, with a subtle and soft quality. Would you mind sharing a bit of how you set that and your cameras up?

Hi!

Attached is a screenshot with the light set up and the corona VFX. I hope that this will help you to clear up your doubts.

I usually use HDRI's to illuminate my scenes. In this case, as I wanted the light to enter in a very particular angle I decided to divide the HDR in two. On one side the sky and on the other the sun. This way I get independent control of both. In this scene the HDRI doesn't have much effect as the light only enters from above. In any other scene that you want to use this method I recommend before to erase the sun from the HDRI to avoid double shadows.

The rest of it is quite normal. Nothing extraordinary. Normally, I control all the values from the VFB and from the Coronacamera I only adjust the F-stop depending on the blur effect I want.

That's great and very helpful, thank you so much!
I'm curious about the cameras because I've tried to replicate that same effect; your renders have a slight blurry patina that I've seen in the renders of Bertrand Benoit as well, they just feel more photographic and I can't tell what the difference is. Normally I set up a target object that I use as a focus, and try to set the camera to realistic values, but I don't get that result :/

Hi! sorry for replying so late.

I don't really know why that could be. Maybe it's something from post-production? maybe the contrast, the sharpness in post or  adding a little of chromatic aberration.  Regardless, I'm attaching a screenshot of the camera's setup. Usually the values marked in red are the ones which I usually touch.

This wonderful soft lighting again! :)
I very much like the scenes.

Man, the images on your insta are incredible!
That Turkish rock landscape is... I'm speechless.

Do I see correctly that in your lighting setup you don't use a Corona sun but a simple parallel light with that map on it?
I haven't used lights as  sun-"surrogates" since years.


Since some guys (also me) discuss on the topic of color grading here in the forum: how do you get such a fantastic color grading in your pic?
Mainly in the VFB or a lot of post in PS etc?
You have an insanely good eye & instinct for light, contrasts and colors!

I know that feeling , I have few( or many :)  )  projects suspended because of that .

jajajaja. Thank you very much. Well, pictures of Turkey are more Turkey's virtue than mine.


Yes. I've used a direct light instead of a Corona sun. The idea is to be able to add a texture and try to maintain the color temperature of the HDRI.  I imagine that with Corona sun you can get similar results and I imagine with more consistency. But, in this case, it seemed to me the fastest and easiest way. It's not a scene with very complex lighting either.

Mostly in the VFB, the postproduction I do is very light. Basically I adjust lights and shadows, add a bit of sharpening, vignette, chromatic aberration and that's it. In some cases I can adjust the color of some elements or the light in certain areas. But that is not the norm.

Gabriel, simply phantastic. I checked your work inn Behance. Hats off, Sir! :)
If I lived in Spain, I´d book a lighting workshop at you. :))))
Lighting is the alpha & omega, in my opinion.
