Meditating Buddha - Lighting test

In this very simple scene I tried to achieve the most reliable lighting so that the result was as close as possible to a real photo.

Basically it is all about tweaking with proper ingredients of HDRI, point light, contrast, exposure and gamma. And, of course, models of proper mesh quality and materials.

Greenery: Botaniq addon
Buddha model: free model from Sketchfab
