There was a partial solar eclipse on the 1st of September, and I figured that’s not the sort of opportunity you want to pass up :)
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.
