Today a interior lightning tutorial by the great cg artist Saeed Amiri
Please visit his site:
I have shared with u the render setup used for this image , plus lighting and camera settings.
In this scene i have used a dome light with HDRI for general lighting , besides using sky portals to produce realistic shadows and also soft box to add warm light and to light up the dark corners .
The HDRI used in the dome light is the Peter Guthrie HDRI.Before using the HDRI you should desaturate the image . You can simply do that by using the shortcut “Cltr + Shift + U” in photoshop .
Note: Don’t forget to check “Lock to dome orientation”
In the image Below you can see the Skyportal settings .
In order to have realistic shadows you should use more than one skyportal for each window .
This is all I have used for lighting.
Next step is setting the camera
This is my result by using these settings.
I hope it would be helpful to you as well
