  1. Post-Processing (optional)

 

  • After you’ve gotten all the raytraced images completed, I usually go into Photoshop to do some post-processing work before putting them into my portfolio.
  • Adjust brightness / Contrast
  • Color Balance
  • Adding lens flare around the light fixtures (This technique will be another tutorial).

But to get the results that are truly photo-realistic, you need to have a good sense of lighting design and a creative mind set.
  • Here is one of my final rendering for this exercise:
