“Over the rainbow”

Here is the final image, pure, modeled and rendered in BforArtists with some minor color adjustments in Affinity Photo afterwards. - This one is about the joy of aviation and flying around in a candy colored world. ^^
Have a great weekend everyone.

Gosh how can we compete!! I was wondering how you make lighting planes that don’t show up in the render? I can’t seem to find that setting…

(DM9) #31

That one´s easy and quite essential to “fake” lighting where needed.
In the object properties there is a “Cycles Setting” rollout, where you can choose the ray visibility for every object in the scene, you can not only hide it from the camera, but also from reflection, refraction, diffuse, etc. - Very handy. :wink:

  • As for the lighting I used the light plane as a fill light from the right and two suns, one big one for soft lighting, that illuminates the scene, but is hidden from the reflection and a small one, that shows up in the hightlights of the eyes and on the plane.

Thanks a bunch! I’m so used to having to strategically place the planes just out of sight of the camera :stuck_out_tongue:

(DM9) #33

In a way that´s more realistic, since photographers have to deal with that as well. Although for complex product photography they usually do multiple shots with and without the lights, so they can easily eliminate the lightboxes in Photoshop later. - That´s easier in 3d land. ^^
