Lighting

I use 2 Vray light and 1 Vray Sun. Locate one under ceiling and other behind the camera.

Put Vray Sun outside the room. It looks room via door.

An important point is Vray Sun’s altitude. Higher altitude means brighter sun. You can find your own altitude yourself.

  1. While some it looks really nice, some parts just don’t seem to fit in. The towel rack above the bath faucet? The mirror on the right isn’t in line with the sink it sits above and the canvas art above the bath just doesn’t work in that room. The two mats on the floor look very stiff as if they are cardboard. And the window on the left doesn’t feel believable, it has no way of opening, it’s very high up and feels wrong. As a piece of realistic 3D rendering it isn’t there but as a concept, it has some beautiful lighting
