Tutorial: Lighting and Rendering Night Scenes
Here is the YouTube version of this tutorial, and here is the accompanying tutorial on using Canvases.
Working with the Iray render engine, and seeing what people do with it on deviantart, over time I've seen the same mistakes repeated many times.  One of the most common that I see has to do with rendering night scenes or other scenes that are meant to be dark.
The thing is that the human eye is bad at seeing in the dark.  If you render literally what someone would be seeing, your scene will look terrible, but this is exactly what I see many people doing.  Hollywood movies often use two specific techniques to create night scenes: lit foreground objects against dark backdrops and "blue-for-night" lighting.  There's a third option (used more in horror) that I will also cover, the use of strong specular highlights and/or rim lighting.  Let's take them one at a time.

Much of my work is exhibited for free here on DeviantArt. However, if you would like access to more renders from each scene, and to Patreon-only scenes, please check out my Patreon site below.

www.patreon.com/Snapshotz3D


I do not generally activate the 'Prints' feature on my images, since each one requires some scaling or cropping, but if anyone is interested in any of those products, drop me a note.


Thanks, everyone, for your support! All comments, faves and watchers are greatly appreciated!
Interests
  Hello folks. Just wanted to check in and fill everyone in on some (minor) changes on how I will be doing things around here, and (major) changes on how I will be doing things overall.
  I have set up a Patreon account. It would be nice to bring in a little cash to support this hobby, which can get a little pricey at times.
Maybe I can even generate enough cash to splurge and buy myself a real video card one of these days so that the speed at which I can render is no longer the limiting factor on how many scenes I can post.
  My wife might be more amenable to my ‘But, honey, I want to make even MORE pictures of naked elves” argument if the pictures of naked elves actually paid for themselves.


  With that in mind, the minor change will be that my output here will slow down so that I can also work on stuff that will only be posted over at Patreon. I anticipate maybe cutting back to posting every 3-4 days instead of every two, with a week off here and there. Given that I have been posting over 150 renders per year, I figure there should be some room to slow down without it being too painful to my wonderful watchers. ;^)
 
The major changes will be that I will aim to create about 30% of my content for Patreon, and that I can do a little more hardcore stuff, which I wouldn’t be able to post here anyway.
 
I hope to try to generate about four scenes every six weeks or so. One of them would be a hardcore scene for Patreon, one would be a softcore scene for Patreon, and two (hopefully three) would be for DeviantArt.

  So, if you are interested, or just want to help out, head on over to Patreon and have a look. The site is still kind of light on content but I hope to correct that as I post new scenes and previously unpublished angles from old stuff.

  Let me stress that I am not a starving artist, so don’t feel any pressure if you can’t afford to support me over there. I appreciate all the watchers, faves, and comments here as it is, and don’t plan to sacrifice that.

  But if you can spare a few bucks a month and want to see even more, more, more naked elves (especially the nasty ones!), any support would be appreciated.


  Thanks everyone for the continued support here on DA!



  PS) Everything that I post here I will also post publicly over at Patreon, so you can follow me at either spot for the free stuff.

Activity


  12 renders from 'An Elven Rose', have been posted over at Patreon. This is a pinup-style Patreon-only scene, but I will post one SFW render here in about a week. Head on over to Patreon if you are interested.

  Thanks for watching!

  Sixteen renders from the next scene, 'Elf Hunt', have been posted over at Patreon. Six renders from this scene will eventually be publicly posted here, and the remaining renders are available to Bronze-Tier patrons.

  Anyone who is interested, head on over to Patreon:

  Thanks for watching!

  I just posted all of the renders from 'The Vampire's Brides: A Rude Awakening' over at Patreon. Six of these were previously posted here, but there are another six available over there now, for those who are interested.

  Bleh! I've started three different scenes in the past week, but none of them seem to be going where I want. And this was after I took a several week break from doing any new stuff. Maybe I shouldn't have taken a break? Or maybe I need another break? Or a break from the break?
  Good thing I had a couple of months worth of renders ready to go; it gives me some breathing room.
  Back at it tomorrow. Let's see what happens...
  Eight renders from the next scene, 'Coral's Tattoo', have been posted over at Patreon. Four renders from this scene will eventually be publicly posted here, and the remaining renders are available to Bronze-Tier patrons.

  Anyone who is interested, head on over to Patreon:

  Thanks for watching!

  Hey, I don't wanna be a llama hoarder! ;) (Wink)
  Some people like llama's, so when I get one, I return one. :) (Smile)
