02. Explanation of lighting & equipment Karl talks you through the lighting and equipment needed for this shoot. Comments February 19, 2018 Log in to Reply Steve b. Karl, I’m sure you mention this somewhere in your lighting discussions but I haven’t caught it yet….. While shopping for used lighting I met a pro who warned me against buying a variety of types and brands of lighting because often mismatched color temps, when used at the same time on the same product, will be unacceptable to some art directors, despite how the end image looks. If this were so then couldn’t slight variations in tones of gels or scrims be used to better balance the temps until the eye could hardly notice? Thank you.
