Lighting – Shadows – Reflections


Project Details:


In this project I wanted to try some techniques that were new to me at the time which were lighting, shadows and reflections.

I built a studio around the model, it was based on a photgraphers studio.

Lighting: I used a 3 point lighting system in this project, one light cast the shadows, while the other two lights just shined to fill in the background.

Shadows: I tried to get the shadows as accurate as possible, I made the shaodws so that they simulated real shadows in the way that they are soft at the edges.

Reflections: I made the car paint and car windows look as if they were reflecting the lights and the surrounding studio environment.

Updated Project:

For this updated project I built up an alley environment and placed the Porsche into it. I gave the Porsche a few different coats of paint, added some optical flares and different lighting.
