This time I set up a 7 point spotlight arrangemnt, 1 key, 2 fills, 2 back and 2 Bounce. No shadows on the Back and Bouce. 100% soft raytrace shadows for the Fill and 5% soft raytrace on the Key. Then for good measure I chucked in UberEnviroment (see image below for the settings). No HDRI map was used or harmed in the making of this image.
All diffuse textures were reduced to 80% strength so I didn’t blow out the surfaces with so much light.
I wanted a light scene as it a family portrait and not some fashion shoot.
Please if you can spare me some time I really would like your comments and thoughts on the lighting. I think I nailed it but I do like an outside opinion every now and then just to keep me on the path to enlighenment.
I am so loving Genesis which is what all three are. Thanks to Swidhelm for his modelling and fivecat for he V4 textures. Yes there are a lot of renders around with these characters so I thought I would do something a little different.
