In this product photography class, Karl uses refraction through two Dior perfume bottles to create this lovely fresh product image.
As he works, Karl highlights common problems – lighting the chrome details on the bottle, the transparent bottle tops and achieving the right amount of refraction.
This photography tutorial is an uncut version of from a “How To” video available on YouTube, but we believe our members should see every step of the process that went into capturing this luxurious shot.
Watch as Karl and Urs Recher tackle each challenge, clearly explaining and demonstrating the solution to each. At the end of the shoot, Karl experiments with a number of alternative lighting modifiers and shows how each produces a slightly different result.
In this class:
