Ditch the HDRI

191117a

I wasn’t getting the brightness and contrast on my rendered element (the tree front left) so I ditched the HDRI lighting and replaced it with a bright sun and a ground plane to reflect fill light. This allowed me to tweak the direction of the light more easily too, and I’m happier with the result. At least I’m learning something from experience and not just from tutorials.
