Skies - Tell me how you don't want more skies in your library... by David Mackenzie

IMG_4884

If there is one thing I know, it is the insatiable need for 3d artists to collect textures, models, backgrounds, hdrs, reference and just about anything else for their "libraries". Just incase you need it right? Given that I thought I would post some more skies for everyone to download. I have done this before just in case you missed them last time around.

About a month ago the sky was working for me so I stopped and took some shots. These were all taken in the afternoon with the sun behind me. If enough people want the raw shots I will upload them as well, let me know in the comments if you do.

There are about 70 shots in the zip which can be downloaded below. As usual these are straight off the camera, no post etc... Here are some of the shots I like most:

[gallery link="file" ids="1348,1350,1349,1351,1352,1353,1354,1347,1346"]

All the shot were taken on a 7D with 17-40L. For those interested these were shot in Coalcliff about ~60km south of Sydney, NSW  Australia.

Download the zip here.

You can use these where ever you like for free. Just let me know! I like to see where things end up!

Sky, Skies and some Skies by David Mackenzie

Tongan Sky

As a 3d artists you can never have to many backgrounds or sky plates in your arsenal. Especially for those working in architectural visualisation, there are only some stills you can pump out before your skies start looking a bit the same... I was recently on vacation and every now and then I decided to shoot some skies when they looked interesting. So below are some skies I shot that you might be able to use. At the very end of the page there a download link for the high-res files. There are all shot at 5k and are straight off the camera so do not expect some nicely cropped and manicured shots, you can do that your self ;). They were all shot on a 7d with either a 17-40mm L or a 70-200mm L.
