Lightmap had the opportunity to chat with Designer, 3D Graphic Artist and Photographer, Damian Misiura, about his experience with 3D technology and how HDR Light Studio has stimulated his creativity.
As a Graphic Designer, Damian Misiura has honed his craft for the last twelve years at Polish mineral water brand, Cisowianka, and in recent years, Perlage; successfully collaborating with a small creative team to designs bottles, cans, packaging and labels through the use of 3D visualisations, animations, photos and videos.
For Damian, traditional working was seemingly the most effective way of turning his ideas into a visual reality; new technologies, including 3D, were looked at with a cautious, reserved eye. Traditional methods were tried and tested, but the lengthy process of designing packaging and hours spent in photo or movie sessions meant there quite simply wasn’t the time for him to unearth the potential of 3D software.
Sonoco-Trident is the world’s fastest growing and most innovative digital brand management business. They have been using HDR Light Studio for 2 years now.
Let’s see what Sonoco-Trident 3D artists have to say about HDR Light Studio software.
The software allows us to very quickly create very realistic lighting set ups for our CGI scenes. It has completely changed how we build our scenes and allowed us to massively improve the quality of renders we produce.
HDR Light Studio is very easy to use, and gives us full control of specific highlights and shadows with its full spectrum of controls, presets and settings.
The software is perfect for creating studio style product shots, which is the bulk of what we do at Trident. It has everything you need to recreate a virtual photography studio on your desktop. Having the ability to ‘drag and drop’ a highlight means you can focus on creativity rather than technical limitations. Prefect for people who aren’t very technical, like me!
We are so pleased that Brendan McCaffrey shared some of his latest work with us, lit with HDRI maps created with HDR Light Studio, and rendered in V-Ray for 3ds Max. These images are stunning!
Brendan said “I have been using HDR Light Studio for the last couple of years and it’s my constant companion. I recently completed a large product packaging project and used HDR Light Studio throughout. The headphone images are a sample of the 200+ images and animations I created and not a single 3D light was used! Models were all CAD data from the manufacturer apart from the soft parts that I modelled. All images were rendered at about 10k-18k pixels”
