It's not enough to know how to create striking 3D renderings; you have to make images that really sell. To effectively sell your renderings, you need the knowledge of a photographer. This class will introduce worthy architectural photography principles and show you how to apply them to 3D renderings. You will learn how to translate good image composition, lighting, and staging to your renderings. This class will also discuss photographic phenomena (such as vignetting, barrel distortion, and glare), and we will cover how to fine-tune these photographic flaws to your advantage to create compelling visualizations that really sell.

Ramy Hanna is a partner and 3D artist at TILTPIXEL. He has been in the architectural visualization industry for the last decade, creating mostly architectural renderings and animations. He is familiar with various 3D software systems and a variety of rendering engines. He also dabbles in architectural photography and has won several design awards, including American Institute of Architects (AIA) Design Awards. He has also presented at several speaking engagements, including Autodesk University, the Revit Technology Conference (RTC), and VisDay. Ramy is an online instructor for The Gnomon Workshop and Blackspectacles.com. Since 2009 he has helped the 3ds Max Team by offering input on the design of 3ds Max software. In 2003 Ramy was involved in an animated short nominated at the SIGGRAPH Conference. In 2006 AMC Theatres' movie theaters nationwide screened the film.
In this hands-on lab we will maximize on several of 3ds Max Design software's powerful modeling tools to help you take your architecture, engineering, and construction content to the next level. We will explore various different workflows that will enable you to increase the quality and detail of your Revit software models and create all new models directly from within 3ds Max Design software.
In part 2 of this 2-part class (part 1 taught by Joe Gunn) you will see the production pipeline from start to finish on a commercial spec spot for the HBO show Boardwalk Empire. This class will pick up where part 1 left off, showing how the latest tools and techniques were used to bring this piece to life. The animation and visual effects are complete; now it's time for some lighting. Who knows, the client may even have some changes that need to be quickly addressed before render passes are set up and composited. Throughout both classes you will learn real-world production-proven techniques and timesaving tips that will help artists from any background who use 3ds Max software.
