Before & After

leave a comment »

How much do you actually do in Photoshop?
What kind of work do you do in “post production”?
Is there alot of differance after you have “tweaked” the image?
Is it really worth the time and effort to go into Photoshop after the renderingen is completed…?

I consider my renderings that come from Hypershot, Vray or Mental Ray to be Raw-images. I treat them just like I would treat a Raw file from my Nikon DSLR (D90). The are a raw material that deserve alot of pixel brushing and color polish. I really love this process since it allows me to be very creative with colors, textures and details, it´s just so much fun!

The creativity doesn´t end when the rendering is complete and Hypershot says “Done”. This is just one phase in the imagemaking process. Post production/Compositing/Mattepainting are vital parts of the imagery pipeline. In most cases I tend to use at least 4-5 render passes that gets composited together using masks and blend modes to get the right color, nice shadows  etc etc.

Thanks for reading,
