October 28, 2017 Log in to Reply Richard Raymond The background light is continuous light or a strobe? October 31, 2017 Log in to Reply Karl Taylor Hi Richard, if you haven’t understood that then I have to ask that you start at chapter one and watch all the way through as this is very important to how you will absorb the knowledge and what you will take away from it. I design and script these courses to teach the right information in the right order. Thanks Karl.

February 3, 2018 Log in to Reply Gina Heaton I totally get that. Great video! February 11, 2018 Log in to Reply Matthew Hi Karl, this whole lighting course has been invaluable and very well scripted. When I originally thought about subscribing I thought it would be another one of those courses that promised all and delivered very little. I can honestly say that in every video I learn a tremendous amount, and my photography is already reaching new heights. Thank you. February 11, 2018 Log in to Reply Karl Taylor Thank you Matthew. February 25, 2018 Log in to Reply john leigh great stuff – did wonder about why you might stand on stool on this lesson as camera so high – is that just a creative choice so can shoot down on model and see more of the background gradient? February 28, 2018 Log in to Reply Karl Taylor Hi John, because I’m only 5″ 7′ ha ha. Usually to look down slightly on the model.

March 7, 2018 Log in to Reply Karl Taylor Hi Fajar, yes but you would need to attach a round diffuser to it first. March 8, 2018 Log in to Reply Fajar Saputro do i need flash bracket to attach a round diffuser ? sorry but i am newbie and so interesting with this course March 12, 2018 Log in to Reply Karl Taylor Hi Fajar, I think you can just purchase dome attachments for speedlites. March 10, 2018 Log in to Reply Kit Moc Hi Karl, will this gradient work with muslin mid grey backgrounds? Thanks, Kit March 12, 2018 Log in to Reply Karl Taylor Hi Kit, as long as they are flat not if they are wrinkled or textured as they will cast shadows. March 17, 2018 Log in to Reply Ezetna Olivier Hi Karl I’m working with a white solid, painted infinite curve. I do not have a grey background. I would like to use the gradient technique. Can I still achieve a grey background by moving my other 2 studio lights much further forward and achieve a similar result ? Thx March 17, 2018 Log in to Reply Karl Taylor Hi Ezetna, yes you can still achieve a good gradient on a white infinite curve.
