Lighting and Texturing for Photorealistic Metals

Improve your lighting skills with this project where we create realistic metals in LightWave. After modeling the simple objects we move on to setting up textures with details such as scratches and dirt that will help with realism and prevent your renders from getting that CG look, before continuing with lighting creating soft shadows and blurred reflections. We finish off by adding depth of field and some other post-production enhancements in Photoshop.
