    1. Hi Amit, if you are using a FF 35mm camera than generally between 50mm and 85mm and also the 100mm macro lens. In medium format my preferred choices are 80mm, 100mm.

    2. also Amit you can find the equipment lists for each shoot underneath the video on the right, hope this helps 🙂

  3. Hi Karl,

    What’s the material for the pink tabletop ? It looks pvc for me but pvc is usually glossy or semi glossy.

    1. its just MDF board painted with matt paint, Karl uses that for most backgrounds and surfaces now as it gives the smoothest look compared to paper rolls etc that wrinkle
