Hi all!

I'm a new podium SU user and made a first attempt at using Podium to create interior renders. Any criticism, feedback or tips are very much welcome!

Thanks,

Gabe

these are lovely first attempt at render. Your lighting looks natural and most of your materials looks OK to me. However your overhead cabinet is a bit too reflective, try reducing the reflection and perhaps add some blur. same with the TV credenza

First attempt at Podium but certainly not rendering [smile]

Those are great! 

Do you have other light sources besides natural light? It seam to me that they are lid too evenly, especially the 1st one. You background images are also not exposed enough, the're a bit too dark.

They are really good ones!, just try to randomize the items on the counter (4 places on counter, perfectly arranged for the future visits or family?)

Thanks for the feeback everyone!

- only natural light used in both (except for an LEM under the kitchen cabinets). However I left some areas of the room open to natural (behind the render) so it wouldn't be too dark. That's what causing the light to be too uniform I'm guessing

This is great work, and one thing that is particularly good is the integration of the people. We don't see many really good examples of this - but yours are [smile]

The points made above are spot on. A little too much reflection, lighting looks a bit too even and finally, your edges look a bit too sharp. Have you used the Roundcorner plugin?

Gabe,

These are great renders! I have a question about how you placed the people in both of these:

Did you place them in the scenes in post processing? I'm curious how you accomplished the shadow effect for the woman sitting on the couch. If it was in post, then that would be simpler, but if it is directly in the Podium render, did you just place a flat image into the scene?

I'm also curious about the reflection of the woman standing in the kitchen. Her reflection seems to show more of the back of her head. Was all of this done within Podium or was she (and her reflection) placed in later?

Thanks for your help.
Keep up the great work!

Tyler

Hey Tyler,

Thanks for the compliments.

The people were inserted in post-processing using Photoshop. The shadow under the women on the couch is done simply by using a soft brush applied to a new Photoshop layer (it’s very easy to do, you just paint the shadow in...just  make sure the brush flow is very low like 1% so you don’t over-do it). It’s the same concept for the lighting on people – a new layer and then a soft white brush to highlight portions of the person you would expect to be hit by the window light. You can also use the lasso tool with a feather applied to select parts of people to lighten and darken so they look more natural in their environment.

The woman’s head reflection on the cabinet was also done in photoshop by simply using the  clone stamp tool go give her more of her hair lol

Hope that helps, let me know if you have questions.

Gabe
