I know this is asking a lot, especially from a newbie, but I was wondering if anyone could provide a tutorial for creating a room from scratch and adding a piece of furniture to it, and then lighting that furniture/room. I'm trying to help my friend who has been building furniture so she can sell it on etsy. Here's the best example I could find:
I've tried recreating something like this, and the color of my floor and walls change too much with the lighting (I've played with ambient, point and spot lights, and my wall and floor get too dark). I also like the feathered/blurred line between the wall and floor, and I'm not able to achieve it in after effects. I'm testing it with images of furniture I found online before my friend has photos taken of her furniture, but I can't get the 3D placement right. The legs get cut off by the floor even though it doesn't even look like it's placed on the floor.
Anyone willing to offer up any help? or point me to a tutorial that would help?
