  1. Hi Karl, I’ve got a problem right now, I can’t watch any video on your website, but I already have a subscription to this plan what it’s $ 14.00 USD / 1month

    1. Hi Tripitaka,

      I have just looked into your account on our site and believe I have solved this issue, you should be able to view all the videos on the site now. If you continue to have any issues just let me know via email at


  2. Hi Karl,
    I am new here. First of all congratulations for your brilliant job.
    My question: What is the liquid product you are using on the table?
    Best regards.

  3. I’ve shot a watch once in the dark using a long exposure and a gradient on my phone’s screen to paint the light. A few exposures and some photoshop later I ended up with a pretty darn good shot:
    Shooting time was about 10min. The quality is not super clean like yours, Karl, it was only a 5D Mark III it was shot on, but I was still quite happy with it! Thoughts?

  4. Hi Guys, i’m afraid there isn’t a retouching tutorial on this video as it wasn’t recorded and this video is from a couple of years ago. However I can tell you that the only retouching is the layering together of the separate reflections , the blending of the different applied reflections. The techniques to do this are covered in our ‘post production’ section however I will have some new watch photography tutorials for 2018 and I will of course include any retouching as part of those. Kind regards Karl.

  5. I, too, would very much like to see the Photoshop tutorial you mentioned at the end of this video. Please make it available soon.
