Thanks, Stray. I should do some perspective stuff for the thread, seeing how I started it and all. :Hangs head in shame:. So I want to understand photorealism for my paintings and concepts. I went back and messed with an earlier post and just experimented some and tried to figure out ways to get realistic lighting/photo grain/DOF/Chromatic Aberration/etc. Lighting is much more subtle than I originally thought, and in ways it's more difficult than what I've been rendering and in some ways easier. Suppose it just takes some practice doing it a different way, but it's certainly worth it, especially since I hope to do work in films eventually.
