Description

This video collection will walk you through creating your own high dynamic range images. And not only just getting an HDRI we look at what makes an HDRI more realistic, stylized, and more interesting for your lighting. We begin with the equipment necessary to create an HDRI image. We cover two methods of gathering the initial images. First the chrome probe ball used in gardens everywhere. Next the fish eye lens which can gather 360 degrees of your view. After you create several HDR's you'll be matching the lighting in your video footage or just enhancing your studio lighting in no time. Software required: Photoshop CS5, HDR Shop, Maya 2012.
