Possibly the warmest summer day in Stockholm, a perfect day to wander outside enjoiying the city with your loved ones.
This infography explains the creative process behind the “summer day” picture one of my entries for the challenge. The one point perspective is a composition which can appeal to be simple but if handled correctly the results can astonish the public. I wanted to get far from the classic arch viz framing, composition and lighting, also for the color palette and saturation. Most of the framing was inspired by my personal gallery of “pueblos magicos” like San Miguel de Allende, classic colonial facades mostly flat looking so the best way to capture them is by a one point perspective picture.
Depicting melting snow this image tries to capture outstanding but realistic sunset lighting conditions.
My entry’s third picture entry. Being born, raised and located in a tropical coastal city I have never experienced snow in the first hand other than one time I travelled to the mountains so I felt this was the perfect chance to try something new and do a scene which approached a snowy situation. In this picture I am testing lighting.
For the interior I wanted to show the building structure and the social phenomena happening there which is a library. Inspired by a section diagrams I configured the camera with a long field of view and a 1:1.6 aspect ratio to get the proper framing.
For the main picture I wanted to show the winter weather but mildly not something so dramatic, so I needed to create a bit of snow (not much because that requires a lot of RAM) so I had to decide which sections to work on, here I show the building itself with snow accumulating on the edges. This was done in HoudiniFX using VEX and VDB nodes.
