Download an HDRI pano single for free. This image was captured with about 20 stops of latitude.
Have you ever need to light a scene above a frozen lake? Yeah me neither. That is until I captured this HDRI. I created a shot because I have this pano now. It is pretty unique. It is very blue above and just about as bright below. Another unique lighting set up to experiment with and get some unusual results.
This HDRI was captured in the afternoon on a sunny day above a frozen lake 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
Use this HDRI in any way you see fit for either personal, academic or commercial projects. Credit is not required but it’s always nice! If you are going to give credit please do so like this:
