Render vs. Photo / Loft Apartment in Kiev by 2B Group

Forum newcomer, Ryan Coyoca, posted one of the best photo-matched renders I’ve seen to date! The real photo actually looks more like the render in this case. The matching render is only a part of a more extensive 3d recreation project of a Loft Apartment in Kiev, designed by 2B.GROUP. Clearly inspired by the works of Bertrand Benoit (and stated as such), it takes nothing from this remarkable achievement. The border between CG & Photography just keeps blurring more and more.

The brick work, which is probably fully photo based, looks so much more real and nicer than the monotonic bricks in the real photo of the loft apartment. What mostly gives away the render is the repetitive wood floor pattern… more attention to that and it would have been harder to pick the right image. One would gravitate towards the empty table image, thinking it was too much of a hassle to mimic all the elements on it 😉

owners of a place that fancy are probably NOT serving "Charles Shaw" wine to anyone. it's affectionately known as "two buck Chuck" here in the US where it sells for $1.99 a bottle at Trader Joe's markets. jus' sayin'... amazing renders otherwise.

It took me a few minutes to figure out which is the rendering from the photo (sneaked through your other images to find the answer) Fun exercise ;)Great modelling, texturing and lighting. Would be interesting and curious to see your workflow.

 @mmm_art It'll surprise you that that brand of wine may be considered premium in Ukraine. It's foreign, imported and relatively difficult to come by. I see that a lot even with cars eg. in Germany where most taxis are Mercedes. Unthinkable here in the U.S, lol.
