Being architects ourselves, we have a good understanding of what you might need. The following 5 steps explain how we approach the architectural visualization, merging 3D graphics, photography and painting:
1. The right vista
Searching for the key view(s) that fully explain the concept of your project.
2. Lighting and textures
Testing materials, lighting conditions and how they define the space.
3. Architectural details
Adding characteristic features such as light fixtures and window frames to enhance photo-realism.
4. Living world
Populating the scene with people and starting with the post-processing.
5. Colour balance and mood
Grand finale, where the image gets its unique personality!
