The weather has been horrible here lately! Between 20 m.p.h. winds or temperatures below zero, I haven’t been able to get out to shoot winter elements as much as I’d like to. Today instead, I have an HDRI from last spring. I wasn’t sure about how useful this image would be when I captured it but I ended up really liking the lighting it provides. See for yourself on the shader ball render below. I think it has some nice complimentary color bounce between some of the blues from the sky reflecting off the water and the orange-brown that the pavilion is painted. It has a nice overall look.
This HDRI was captured on an overcast morning in the spring in a picnic pavilion in the American mid-west.
This HDRI is equirectangular mapped for use as a CG light source.
It is provided as a 32-bit .EXR
