Elixxier, Germany-based software company, has released a photography software called set.a.light 3D Studio that simulates a real-world studio condition to aid photographers in prepping their lighting set up.
Any professional portrait photographer would tell you that most of the handiwork to create a great portraiture involve an in-depth knowledge in lighting and how different equipment are required to achieve the desired outcome.
This is why Elixxier developed a tool that would simulate a studio shoot including a plethora of lighting equipment, a highly-customizable virtual camera complete with real-life settings that can be altered to meet a specific need and a stand-in virtual model. When you’re happy with your arrangement and settings, the software can also give you a preview of the resulting image you’d get using your setup.
The Elixxier set.a.light 3D Studio retails for USD184 or more than 7 grand in our local currency. It’s a bit on the pricey side, but considering the things that this software brings to the table, we think that it’ll be a good investment particularly to those who are still learning the ropes of Portrait photography.
