PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Have you ever found your go-to wide-angle cloud backgrounds to be lacking in resolution when you blow them up for a detail shot?

This collection of telephoto skies and clouds is the fix to that problem. They are intended to complement your existing collection of wide angle/spherical skies with images you can use for close-up and detail shots.

The package includes 50 clear, cloudy, overcast, sunset and dusk skies + 5 bonus skies.

Perfect for use in arch-viz, VFX and compositing for film and animation.


TECHNICAL SPECS

  • 8K Resolution: 8.000 x 3200 pixels (2.5:1 aspect)
  • 50 skies + 5 bonus skies
  • Delivered in visually lossless EXR format (DWAB) in Linear sRGB color-space
  • JPEG previews are included
  • All skies have the horizon firmly aligned at the bottom
  • Birds, foliage and buildings have been painted out
  • Highlights and shadows are 100% intact and unclipped
  • Noise/grain has been reduced using Neat Image Pro
  • All images have a focal length equivalent to an 80mm lens + a horizontal FoV of 9 degrees (approximately)
  • NB: Clouds being what they are (water vapor that is far, far away), the sharpness/detail of the different skies varies a bit. Before purchasing you can download the free sample package that includes four full-resolution EXR skies to get a sense of what the skies look like.

BONUS

  • 5 bonus skies!
  • These skies do not have a horizon at image bottom and are in irregular resolutions + focal lengths, but I thought they could be useful so I have included them as extras


PROCESS

  • Shot on a Canon 5D Mark III + 70-200mm f2.8L Mark II at 5500K
  • Captured in 14-bit RAW / Processed in 32-bit in every post step
  • Stitching and alignment done in PTGui Pro
  • Noise reduction using Neat Image Pro
  • Removal of buildings, foliage and birds - so many birds! - in Photoshop
  • Most images are made up of 7-9 shots at a combined resolution of approx. 14.000 x 5.500 pixels before downscaling to 8K (which I felt was a reasonable sweet-spot before starting to lose important resolution data)
