This live show focuses on the technique of tilt-shift photography as Karl demonstrates how to shoot an arrangement of products using this technique.
Building up light by light, in this live show Karl demonstrates how to use a combination of gradient light, point light sources and global fill to create a beautiful final shot of these shiny objects and shows you why using tilt-shift is the best option to get the ideal results.
The material of these tools adds an extra level of challenge. But with clever problem solving and some carefully placed lights Karl reveals how you can add some beautiful specular highlights. This show contains a setup and concepts that can be easily adjusted to suit a variety of products from cosmetics to technical tools.
Karl touches on the concept of angles of incidence and reflectance and how to calculate where you need to place a light in your setup to illuminate your products - an important principle that will help make your photoshoots run smoother. He also shows you where to focus and how to adjust your tilt shift adapter or lens to get the correct results.
