I love my broncolor studio lights but recently I’ve been accused of only making great pictures because of my equipment. Let’s see what I can do with just four table top desk lamps instead!

    Not sure why are you getting in an argument Karl.

    Hi Karl Taylor! Thank you for your amazing videos! I'm mostly into filming and using the GH series from Panasonic (GH5). Would you say I can achieve professionell results in product and portrait photography (like in this video and that one with the more expensive set-up) with m4/3 in general? Or would it be much more practical to use ff? Without much experience I can imagine a setup with the GH5, Voidländer f0,95 optics and a good light of course.
    Thank you very much! 🙂

    when i first started i made classic mistake that expensive means better.dont get me wrong if your a buisness you need reliable equiptment but after a few months i realised that without basic knowledge it doesnt matter if you got expencive stuff you wont take great pictures.i learned that its how you use your stuff and know there limitations is key.i have had amazing results using torches.also before i invest in any equiptmen i see if i can make it myself first like i made my own soft box because i didnt know if i was gona use it alot and it also helps you understand how it works too

    Yes it is simple, the goal is too get volume and dimention, then also the photo can go on the warm side or cold side, i guess cause the subject is wine better to go to the warm color side, this apply to bacgrounds and lights

    Like you stated, the proof is in the pudding. If you have a passion, in this case photography, and whether on a budget or not, you can adapt, overcome and improvise and "still" pull off the desired shot with items readily available around you or within a reasonable budget. Great job on the tutorial!!!

    Karl, very well done, sir! Your point about creativity with 4 desk lamps is well taken…it "almost" makes me feel better that I can't afford those Broncolors! 🙂

    Excellent tutorial, many thanks for sharing!
    For the time being, only four questions (if I may ask, of course):
    1. Why the inner blackness of the LED lamp "DIY snoot" has not been mentioned, i.e., why did you not mention that such a snoot should be as black as possible on the inside?;
    2. What is the explanation for the inclined / not perpendicular angle (with respect to the optical axis) of the second diffusion screen (the right-hand one as we watch) and after how many trials can we discover that precise angle?;
    3. What would be the most appropriate white balance setting, given the number of light sources?;
    4. Taking into account that three of the four lamps have tungsten / halogen (I truly confess that I do not know if they are all the same or not) bulbs, whilst the fourth is a LED-powered one, how long should we let them "warm up" to get a colour temperature as steady as possible?
    Once again, thank you for sharing this great video and thank you very much indeed for some more additional hints!

  33. Lukasz Brodziak

    One question, maybe stupid but did you use tungsten whute balance or set custom in postproduction?

  34. Austin News Story

    Karl, No need to prove anything to anyone. Your work speaks for itself!

    Sad that there are always gonna be haters and trolls. Great video!

    Why is it that whenever photographers talk about the camera settings they use for a given setup (camera + ISO + shutter speed + aperture), they never mention the distance the camera is from the subject?

    Now people are going to say; "you only can get this result because of the expensive bottle of wine" , and "We can't all afford an expensive cameraman's reflection on a wineglass" 😉

    Thank you Karl! I actually stopped watching your videos because I thought the content was becoming more high end gear driven rather than photography driven. I like the basics. I shoot with Nikon D700 (x2), a D3s and 2.8 trinity (VR1 & non VR). Working on the craft rather than chasing the kit.

    Great Work! Can i ask why you used an 85mm lens? And what lens would you recommend for taking images of baseball hats for a website on a canon 6d?

  40. KreygScott

    Awesome video. I've been using your techniques from your Advertising 6 Disc DVD for my stock photography and they've been most helpful. Thanks for all your hard work mate.
