This was shot in the Blender Institute in Amsterdam, just after the Blender Conference 2016. The Monday after the conference was reserved for a sort of open-day at the Institute, hoards of people could come and see what goes on there and spend the day chatting about all things Blender. This was of course a bit later in the evening when most people had already gone home, with just a few devout acolytes and the institute staff remaining.
Here are another 3 HDRIs :) And there will be 7 more coming next week.
If you’re interested in the full-resolution versions, you can pre-order the bundle of 10 before next Tuesday and get 25% off the regular price (which is already 33% lower than the price of the HDRIs individually).
You might recognize the first location – it’s the closest place to my house that has a fairly clear view of the sky. Joburg is notorious for all its trees, so it’s quite hard to find places like this that don’t have huge trees or buildings blocking a bunch of the sky.
I shot all three of these (and many of the 7 coming next week) last year around July/August as a bonus for the AgenZasBrothers’s new video workshop (which is extremely good by the way, and I’m not just saying that). It was during this time that I really nailed down my technique of capturing the sun and all its ridiculous brightness.

So here are some more HDRIs for all you lovely people :) I just added them to HDRI Haven on Tuesday and thought you guys might not know about them. There’s actually quite a few more HDRIs on there that I’ve never posted about here, so take a look if you’re interested.
