We have just released an in depth ‘product shot’ lighting tutorial for ‘HDR Light Studio for MODO’ by Mark Segasby, co-inventor of HDR Light Studio software.
See how easily you can light your product shots using HDR Light Studio in MODO rather than traditional 3D lights and bounce cards. This demo is over 30 minutes long and does go into a lot of detail about the lighting process and techniques possible using HDR Light Studio.
As the HDR Light Studio interface is the same whichever partner software it is used with, this tutorial is useful for any HDR Light Studio user, whichever 3D software they use. Happy Lighting!
We also produced a tutorial for lighting animated product shots also, where additional considerations need to be made about the lighting over time.
