Cozy living room with Blender Cycles

To render an architectural visualization project in Blender, you must be comfortable with rendering and modeling settings in general. But, another type of knowledge might become critical for certain types of designs. You must know how to handle camera settings to work with enclosed spaces and render interiors from compact apartments. Those apartments are common in several large metropolitan areas due to space limitations.

Here is an interesting project from digital artist Amanda Santini, which shows a compact residence with a living room render. The project is a perfect example of a location where you must adjust the camera settings to show a reasonable detail about the project. In that particular render, the artist changed the camera FOV to a high value (+ 75 degrees) to get a wide view from the room.

As a bonus, she also shares some render settings and the locations of key light sources in the project. If you want to take a look at more details about the setup for this scene, I strongly recommend a visit to either the ArtStation post or Blender Artists thread with the project.
