Introduction to 3D Visualizations & Photorealism

The purpose of this Blog is to create a weekly post with interesting and useful content, in addition to show you my work and skills. However, it has been 2 weeks since my first post and… I didn’t know where to start!

Finally, I decided to share with you my most recent project on 3D Visualization. It is an interior design scene in which I wanted to test my skills managing photographic composition and illumination. This is an important matter, precisely, because these qualities are what make an image “objectively” more beautiful/cool/attractive.

Yes, objectively. I am not talking about this topic – today – but it is demonstrated that biologically and as species, some images are much more appealing to us depending on specific patterns. Well, here is the result of my work: Hope you like it!

First, I did some composition and illumination tests. For this purpose, I created a virtual photography set where I could verify how the whole scene worked. I studied the position of every object, the light angle and the exposition parameters of the virtual camera.

After that, I created every single material searching for samples in other similar projects. The Star Trek posters are a -geeky- personal choice, however, it fits great since the color range and the Pop Art style bring some fresh air to the scene.

As we can see above, the “Final Render” is quite good but it needed to be improved with some post-production. This way we can get a more “photo-realistic” result or just simply customize our image.

When you work on the same image for long hours you tend to lose perspective, so I took a break. Later, I came back to it in order to increase the contrast a bit. Personally, I prefer this option. What do you think?

I am very interested in your opinion, so just leave a comment! Do you want to read about an specific topic? Any suggestions for the next posts?
