This was a fairly straight forward modeling, lighting and rendering project to present four simple yet elegant renders of Logitech’s optical wheel mouse. The lighting setup was somewhat challenging in order to achieve a crisp image with full tonal range, none of which is blown out or underexposed.
The translucency of the red plastic was achieved using VRay’s absorption features.
Lighting is a mix between global illumination and traditional lighting techniques using VRay area lights. Rendered with VRay 1.06. Some processing in Photoshop.
