Render

To render the boat was actually a very simple process. I find that V-Ray offers the best results with the fewest parameters and settings. To finish the image I took it into Photoshop for post-production.

My main focus when rendering was to make sure that none of the shadows were too harsh so that they could be adjusted in Photoshop and integrated with photos.

I used a V-Ray plane to assist the final render, and the V-Ray physical camera (Fig.19 - 23).

Here is the final result using the material settings shown in the previous images (Fig.24).

I always do my renders a little darker and with a more uniform color with no burst point. This makes it much easier to make changes to color and to adjust the lighting.
