Download an HDRI pano single for free. This image was captured with 24 stops of latitude.
Since last week’s HDRI was useful but not the most interesting thing to look at, I decided this week I’d do something that is much more interesting to look at but maybe has fewer or more specific uses. I have definitely found uses for this pano before but usually it is more of a featured element than a supporting player. I typically like to use this image in scenes with a lot of reflections or refractions because of how much interesting detail it has. Anyway, I’d really love to see how you use this HDRI in your own work! Do you find it more useful as a featured element or are you finding more general everyday uses?
