13 Oct Rendering 3D Objects In Photographs
Technology has become a bit of a game changer in the field of photography.
From basic post-processing in Photoshop to the elaborately artful planning and addition of computer generated elements in shots, the key is to use these tools well. For photographers willing to dive in and tackle the oft complex modeling techniques and overwhelming abundance of icons, this kind of CG/photography (CGography?) collaboration can create extraordinary outcomes. So, what if the process were simpler and more accessible?
Interestingly, these smart folks have recently developed a method that allows you to simply and seamlessly add 3D elements into photographs, where it intuitively accounts for the lighting, shading, etc. All of this without having any scene model or lighting information from the original shot. Genius, right?

Will CG be the new Photoshop?
