How many times have you not been satisfied with lighting in your design?
Have you ever thought If there was a way you could pre-see all the lighting scheme before finishing your project? There’s a hundred ways of combining lighting that could make or break you design, which option to choose?
Fortunately, there’s a fast, easy and effective way of doing this. Using this method you can try several options of lighting as much as you like and choose the one that you like, and that is 3D rendering. In this blog I’ll be talking about how you can achieve best lighting scheme using 3D rendering.
- Use Three-point lighting
Three-point lighting is the standard of every lighting setup used in video, film, photography and also in 3D rendering. You must also get the use of It in your project as it would bestly light up your interior.
Three-point lighting consists of 3 types of lighting: Key light, Fill light, and backlight.
- Choose your Key lights
Key lights are the main ones in your interior that you can put to light your main areas: furnishings, tables, task areas and etc. Key lights can be: canned lights, spot lights directed lights, accent lights and others. They should have warm color to positively affect the viewer. Here’s the example of key lights in the room:
- Fill lights
Their main role is to light the areas which kind of couldn’t be lit by key lights [i.e. shadow areas]. Fill lights can be sky light coming from windows or the ambience of other lights in the room. They just wash out the room with a little ambience. I use HDRI images to imitate the skylight in my 3D rendering software. Here’s the example showing combination of Key and Fill lights.
- Back light
Back light is the light bounced off the walls and floor which lights the other half of your objects in the room, thus giving them very little tint infused from the walls and the floor. No need to worry about It because your 3D software should take care of it very well on Its own using special calculations.
Now that you know how easy it is to create effective lighting by 3D rendering, your projects will look no longer boring and flat. Your projects will look realistic and have sense of depth, emotional and interesting, you can confidently show them to any of your clients to show off your design.
