Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Real or not? 3D graphics have come a long way...

Do you remember the photos of &Traditions new designs that I showed you in a post a few weeks ago? I just got an email from an architect who used a 3D-rendering software to reproduce the images because he was so inspired by them, so he tried to catch the wonderful light in the photos. Meaning, he created these pictures himself, from scratch, on his computer, to look almost exactly as the original photos. I think it's just crazy how far 3D graphics has come in the last few years! No one could tell that these are not photographs, and I almost can't tell the difference between these and the originals. Can you?
I actually studied 3D graphics briefly in college, but let me tell you, pictures like these weren't even imaginable back then, and even though we had some great software, these results would have been impossible even for the most talented persons. (I was not among those talented persons. I was happy if I could make an image that someone could see what it was supposed to depict. Like a ball, or a snowman...)

    whau - the only thing that caught my eye was the curtains... amazing - I too studied 3d visualization, and remember my very first computerrendering - it was finished with colourpencils... much has happened :)

    Do you know what software was used to create these images? I'm looking to try out a new 3D software.

    Jösses, där ligger man i lä. Riktigt häftigt, nästan så att 3D bilderna är snyggare än de riktiga fotografierna, framförallt närbilden på lamporna :)

    Wow... so you mean that from the photos he was able to use 3D technology to reproduce them? sorry I 'm graphically challenged.
    I love the use of books as part of the statement!! So many beautiful books why not show them off!!

    Oh my... The second picture is so real. Still remember when I was cutting pages to make views back at the architecture school. And I'm not so old!

    Lovely post.
