Portfolio Redux: Country kitchen
As mentioned in Click3D’s first blog post of 2012, some of the existing projects featured in the portfolio will be revisited with the intention of enhancing them by using new and revised techniques. Therefore, without further delay, Click3D would like to present a new version of the country kitchen featured way back when this site was born.
The existing camera angle was retained, albeit with some tweaks to the settings, whilst a few changes were made to aspects such as textures. ...Read More →
It has indeed been a little while – in internet terms at least – since there was an update from Click3D. Suffice to say that things have been very busy working on a wide range of interesting and unique projects, not to mention a well-earned break for Christmas. Of course, while it is good to be busy it has meant that this blog has been a little neglected so now is the time to dust things down, get the polish ...Read More →
Like a duck: Calm and unruffled on the surface…
…but frantically paddling underwater is pretty much how Click3D has felt this last couple of weeks or so, hence the lack of blog-shaped updates. No bad thing, really!
In between delivering renderings of residential interiors to the delight of the client, a trip to Munich (some fantastic graffiti there), constructive meetings and conversations with a number of prospective collaborators, a little bit of relocation (hello Winchester), planning revisits to portfolio projects, working on photomontage images for submission to the planners and ...Read More →
Click3D’s architectural visualisation articles #4 – The advantages of architectural visualisation over photography
Welcome back! Today’s post is another article produced by Click3D, albeit one which differs from the previous postings as this is more of an opinion piece. Whilst not (at) all that controversial it might offer a little food for thought with regard to how, why and when photography and architectural visualisation differentiate.
Architectural visualisation is often compared directly with photography as a means to promote or market a development or project. Whilst the latter offers true photorealism – post-production ...Read More →
Some hours were invested over the last week or so in updating and enhancing Click3D’s networking presence, the desire being to enable as much coverage as possible and, therefore, the increase in exposure which might bring in new commissions and collaborations. Above and beyond the now-ubiquitous Twitter and Facebook, Click3D now has a Google+ page as well as a presence on sites such as Kropped, Behance and Flickr, to name but a few (other ...Read More →
It must be about time for an update from Click3D towers I hear you cry? Well, in truth, it may well be since the last few updates have been about the successful Edge House project meaning that developments from within the studio have been scarce.
So, perhaps the main point of interest is the ongoing collaboration between Click3D and aspiring street artist Jenxfive: This project emanated from eBay of all places when one party bought some books from the other and ...Read More →
The Edge House Trilogy – Part 3
Hello once again and a pinch and a punch for it is the first of the month! Today brings the final image from the Edge House project, this being a view of the master bedroom. Obviously already existing, what the client was experiencing was, once again, a few small issues with visitors not being able to embrace the potential of the room. To resolve this, Click3D’s architectural visualisation prowess (for there is some…) was called upon once again.
The specific issue ...Read More →
The Edge House Trilogy – Part 2
Good morning and welcome to part two of the Edge House project. Today’s update moves from outside to inside, specifically into the existing dining room. As you can see, the intention is to open out the space by adding the conservatory, as illustrated last week, and so create both a formal dining area and one which lends itself to a far less formal dining and drinking experience, perhaps more of a weekend breakfast room if you will.
Currently, there exists outward-opening ...Read More →
The Edge House Trilogy – Part 1
It feels like it’s time for another portfolio update for Click3D. Well, the first of three weekly installments anyway, as previous investigations into whether it’s possible to add many images in one go were not exactly successful. Whether this is a PICNIC issue (go and Google that acronym if you must…) or a limitation of WordPress it’s hard to say, but it definitely isn’t insurmountable.
Anyway, enough of the preamble. The image you see added today, as well as the ones ...Read More →
Click3D’s architectural visualisation articles #3 – The photomontage process
Here is the third article from Click3D’s archives which aim to give more insight into the processes, procedures and techniques involved in architectural visualisation. This post discusses the photomontage process which involves input from several parties, not just the visualiser.
The necessity for accurate photomontage arises when a proposal which has the potential to dramatically affect physical and/or experiential aspects of day-to-day life is submitted. These concerns may involve privacy, environmental or aesthetic matters connected to the proposal itself ...Read More →
