Download an HDRI pano single for free. This image was captured with about 33 stops of latitude.
It’s incredible how different the look and feel of the last few HDRI captures are from each other. They were all captured on the same day within a few hours of each other and all within about a mile of each other. Yet, the lighting is vastly different. I don’t know if it is just me because I know these were all captured pretty early in the morning but the lighting for all of these feels like morning light. They have some quality that I can’t quite say exactly what it is but they feel like morning light.
This HDRI was captured near a river on a hazy, summer morning in the American mid-west.
This HDRI is equirectangular, Lat/Long mapped for use as a CG light source.
It is provided as a 32-bit .EXR
