Get to know a little about architects Emely Córdova and Charles Infante, the masters behind Angular Lab, as they talk about their professional journeys and their biggest influences.

Explore the basics of photorealism and how to prepare your model before importing it into Lumion. Now it's in the program, work on adding texture to the materials, then focus on decorative items and setting up your camera.

Get to grips with the essential effects you need to know before working on your scene, such as sun, shadows, exposure, reflection, and Hyperlight.

Next, discover the secondary effects that give your image a photographic finish, like focal length, two-point perspective, camera effects, color correction, lens flare, depth of field, and volumetric sunlight.

They teach you how to configure the most advanced effects such as Sky Light 2, Global Illumination, skies, and clouds. These are the details that make your pieces truly realistic and offer the kind of precision you want to convey.

Learn how to adjust all the elements simultaneously to achieve a photorealistic result. Now that your renders are ready, hear some simple tips for tweaking certain elements to polish your design.

Architectural Visualization Studio

Architects Emely Córdova and Charles Infante are the cofounders of Angular Lab, an architectural visualization studio in Lima, Peru. They started their company at 22 years old, shortly after graduating from college, and have already completed more than 300 3D visualization projects. Their mission is clear: to bring projects to life before the physical work even begins by generating high-impact images using Lumion's rendering engine.

They work with various real estate agencies in Peru, as well as with some architecture and interior design studios. Their project, Tiny Desk, was published in the Lumion 11 software update. Impressively, it's the image that appears when downloading the program.
