  1. I now have a new use for my 137 x 183 soft box. At $14 a month, these videos are awesome.

  2. I am enjoying the vidoes. Is there any other alternative softbox I can use no budged for this large softbox?

    1. Hi Simon, as you would have hopefully gathered from Chapter 1 and Chapter 7 of this course to achieve this effect does require a large light source, there are other ways of creating this but essentially it has to be a large light from the models perspective.

      1. thank you Karl I will save up for one.

        But would a large octa softbox give similar results. I do have 170cm octo

        1. Hi Simon, the octa 170 is about 2/3rds of the size so it would be about 2/3rds as effective so the closer you can get it the better. You could also consider making yourself a large scrim and firing your ocatabox through that.

          1. This answered my question also. Glad I bought some diffusion material too.

    1. Yes I guess she does a little but she’s not. I always thought she looked a little like a young Sophie Loren too.

  3. I’m really enjoying the course I have a question do interfit and bowens accessories have the same s type fitting ?

    1. Hi Michael, they are both S mount but I’m not sure if they are exactly the same but interfit usually make their accessories or adaptors to fit major brands.

  4. If you are passing this deal up, shame on you! So much knowledge here. Thank you Karl for giving photographers what we need!!!

  5. That final close up was awesome, and the model is absolutely stunning. really enjoying the course thanks guys. That studio by the way is a dream for most photographers would be in my element with a studio like that.

    1. Hi James, thank you, this studio is my 5th one and they’ve grown bigger each time over the last 25 years. My first studio was small! 🙂

  6. Man this is amazing, nice stuff here, congrats for this educational work,.
    I have a comment, maybe the camera man can use a cheap stabilizer, I’m not kidding, I got dizzy watching just 2 videos, just saying..

  7. Just a quick question Karl,do you use different Lightroom Catalogues for your teaching projects,as per a catalogue for this series and a different catalogue for a new teaching project

    1. Hi Robert, no i’m really lazy in that respect I only process the files in LR and that’s it, I’ve never created new catalouges.
