|Photographs and computer generated 3 dimensional renderings share
many attributes; however, their similarities can be summed up in the
phrase: Painting with light.
Photography, whether film or digital,
is the art of capturing images of the real world. Computer 3D
rendering is the art of generating images of models, using software
to simulate the physics of light and camera.
Although I have taken photographs since my childhood, it was only
until 1997 that I started to develop an interest in photography as
My interest on 3D modeling & rendering began around 1988 with the
introduction of perspective views in Autodesk's AutoCAD drafting
I have learned both forms of art by self-didactic methods, using
books, tutorials and lots of practice. At every opportunity I have,
I always compare my work with that of professionals, even when doing
so brings me lots of pain.
