Chicago Loft by Bertrand Benoit

0

Here’s a remarkable little Déjà vu for you… Last year started with a spotlight on Bertrand Benoit’s Tribeca Loft, and today he posts his new Chicago Loft images on the forums! Perfect timing & execution as you would expect of him. Last month Bertrand released the Chicago Loft scene for sale on Turbosquid in clean form so that you can populate it with your own models, serving as a showcase set – His current set of images is a great example of how this could be done.

Here are Bertrand’s images that he made in this set. You can see all of them in his flickr set for this.

Check out Bertrand’s forum thread too – Chicago Loft (comes to life)

Ohhh...most of them look perfect to me, aside from the big middle one. The wooden stool to the lower right is obviously 'floating' to me.

Bertrand, would you be so kind to show us your material workflow? Your's are just amazing! Congratulations!!

Hi Robert. No, the scene is lit with a jpg plugged into a DomeLight. For very overcast skies, like here, there is not much difference in the dynamic range of an HDR image and a jpg. The directional lighting is provided by a Max direct light (in order to have control of the colour).

Hey guys, does somebody of you know something about the scene lighting in this scene you can buy on turbosquid? I asked there, but didnt get any answer. Just want to know if it comes with hdri or not. Thanks!

The 4th image has a little issue with the lamp, being smack-dab in the middle, and aligning perfectly with the window opening. it is bothering my eye... but that's just me :) great work!

Chicago, my home town. These renders are beautiful. I love the de-saturated colors, ad attention to detail.

Another excellent set of photorealistic images from Bertrand Benoit. I really like the way he uses his virtual camera, his models and shaders. He makes some of the best uses of chromatic aberration in this industry too. Thanks for sharing, Ronen. Eyecandy!

Obviously the amazing skills of bbb3viz always puts my own work in perspective.

This is really, The Best of Interior Architecture Visualisation. period.

I can only say that the loft scene is an amazing source of learning, I'm currently in the process of examining 'EVERYTHING'. And later I'm planning on redoing the entire scene in order to hopefully learn more about it.

@nnamdiakubuiro hahaha... i'm wondering sometimes when i'm looking at all Bertrand's images (these and all older published): is he have some kind of secret plugins for 3ds max which can convert real photos to 3d models/scenes and automaticly setting everything up in vray to push only the render button?! :) it is unnecesary now to ask questions like: why he didn't publish his work in citylife challenge? who could find time to create an entry while making excellent piece of art like these shots! one more time: amazing, fantastic, outstanding! ;)
