The FIRE III course (figuration et représentation de l'architecture) is given by the LAPIS laboratory (laboratoire des arts pour la science).
The goal is to produce two believable images based on the painting of a bedroom: here "Woman Tearing a Letter" by Dirck Hals (1631). The first one aspires to a precise restitution, and the second one to an interpretation.

The first step was to construct the reverse perspective to establish the dimensions of the objects in plane and elevation. We then made a Rhino 3D modeling, added a Vray rendering with materials and a global light, and finally made a Photoshop post-production by superimposing a white model photo of the scene to obtain light effects of the true reality.
For the second image, we highlighted the dramaturgy of the lights and the letter by suggesting that the image had been made in a photography studio. We modelled all the objects on Rhino 3D ourselves and produced a Vray rendering including both materials and lights, by reproducing on software the illumination obtained in model on the first image.
