Hotel on Rivington | Free HDR

Hotel on Rivington in downtown Manhattan is the backdrop for this free to download HDR image from The Mari Channel HDR library.

Fido Atrium | HDR

Another VFX related HDR is the downstairs atrium of Fido and Goodbye Kansas Entertainment Group in the Tobacco monopoly in central Stockholm, Sweden. I use this HDR frequently in Mari when texturing and previewing using shaders.

The Bridge HDR

  Another HDR, this time with connections to the Swedish VFX industry. I took this HDR during a lunch break while I was working at FIDO VFX in Sweden. The atrium and the bridge has a very nice light to it and  the acoustics are phenomenal if you happen to have a birthday.  In Sweden we have a traditional birthday song called “Ja må han leva” sung by your friends and family etc.  I think I had one or two of these...
