Urban Fluid Particles

Here’s a quick video I made with footage shot on my phone. Enjoy!


Wow. Stunning work. Did you shoot a HDRI for this scene? If yes, what equipment did you use for it? Was it shot also with the phone?

Cheers,

Thank you! No HDRI was used for this scene. I only had my phone available to me so all the lighting is achieved with a panorama shot on my phone. All I did was add a slight curves adjustment to the panorama in the world material nodes, so as to brighten up the highlights and “pump” more light into the scene from the sky.

I would normally use my DSLR (Canon 550D) to shoot a triple bracketed exposure of a mirror ball and create my own HDRI in Photoshop, but not this time.
