FREE HDR images from Bob Groothuis
Bob Groothuis (opens in new tab) is the man behind HDRI photography series Dutch Skies, which have been used in various films, videos and games, including Assassins Creed 3 and Infinity Blade 3.
For the Creative Bloq advent giveaway, Groothuis has generously created a set of exclusive images, which you can download for FREE (opens in new tab). The package includes four High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Smart Image-Based Lighting (sIBL) sets, which include 11k HDRs and extra background plates. These images contain more lighting information than a standard photograph and, once wrapped around your scene, allow you too use the lighting captured in the photo to light your objects in a realistic manner.
The sets can be used and imported in a wide variety of 3D applications, including Lightwave, Cinema4D, Modo, 3dsMax, Maya and Blender. For more information, visit the HDRLabs website (opens in new tab).
Groothuis has a busy year ahead, with 2014 seeing the release of Dutch Skies, volume five (opens in new tab), and the addition of a new product line called Dutch Skies 360° XL (opens in new tab) - with HDR skies up to the size of 19k.
