47. Movie style mystery and beauty Wow what a result and no Photoshop used! Karl precisely controls four light to create this stunning and enigmatic movie style portrait. Using only basic modifiers and a few home made ones too, Karl demonstrates the techniques from start to finish. Comments July 9, 2017 Log in to Reply ILIDIO ALVES Hi Karl, I really enjoyed this lesson how to overcome difficulties at the moment of clicking. Only this lesson was worth all the cost of the year. In this class I realized how the photographer has to be really multi task and, above all, be creative to get the results you want. Congratulations! Keep going like this, teaching how to be a good photographer! Deborah was also a great role model. Patient and friendly. Congratulations to her too.

September 30, 2017 Log in to Reply Mark Harris The more I see you work the more sense it makes not to use a light meter, it would be impossible to meter this shot to get anywhere near the same quality. I’m also realising just how little I knew beforehand, and how following some inferior “tutorials” has compromised my learning curve. September 30, 2017 Log in to Reply Karl Taylor Thank you Mark and unfortunately I have to agree with you, there are many players who try to teach but have little real professional experience or proper understanding of the subject. I’ve spent many years formatting the delivery of my knowledge in a way that can be absorbed, understood and implemented and that’s why it is extremely rewarding for myself and the team to receive feedback like this. Cheers Karl and the team. October 11, 2017 Log in to Reply Natia Gelantia My favorite setup so far in portraiture .. The result is perfect. It also opens the imagination .. Thanks for this. October 12, 2017 Log in to Reply Karl Taylor You’re welcome Natia, this was also a favorite of mine. December 20, 2017 Log in to Reply Bogdan Rusu Karl, hello again. At one point you said it can be easily done by adding the 5th light bounced on a larger surface. Wouldn’t that spill the light so it could surpass the shadow effect you made on the model’s face? December 20, 2017 Log in to Reply Karl Taylor Hi Bogdan, can you give me the timecode so i know which part of the video you are referring to? December 27, 2017 Log in to Reply Bogdan Rusu Hello Karl. 22’49” “If I could use more (lights) the easiest way is to bounce another light into this polyboards” . Sorry if I mispelled something. January 3, 2018 Log in to Reply Karl Taylor Hi Bogdan, yes remember each section in this course I restricted myself to using either 1, 2, 3, or 4 lights. So I was unable to use any more but if I was able to then I could have used them instead of the metal reflector.

Very impressive. February 12, 2018 Log in to Reply Bogdan Paraschiv Hard work, beautiful result. Thank you, Karl. February 14, 2018 Log in to Reply Karl Taylor Thank you.
