  1. I simply love these shows, especially the logical way Karl explains what he is doing and why, and how he is answering upcoming questions. Thanks a lot to Karl and the whole team at KTE

  2. Excellent as always Karl, about 3 weeks too late for me as I had to shoot champagne and rose wine bottles for a client the other day and could have done with this knowledge of scrims and lighting the punt (great word). My question is regarding the condensation. I used this technique when shooting the champagne but decided to keep it away from the paper label and foil top as I did not feel that condensation would be on these materials, what’s your opinion?

    1. Hi Jason. I generally shield the labels a little with my hand or a piece of paper so it has less condensation on it. Not because I don’t think condensation would form there but more to protect the legibility of the brand.

  3. Excellent as always, thanks Karl & team.
    Great idea for Tim to walk a 360 deg around the studio / set up at the end, so we can see the whole lighting set up from every angle. That could be useful as a feature in future shows.
