Gravity-Defying Portraits: Take and Make Great Photography with Gavin Hoey

Posted in Photo, podcast, Gavin Hoey, AdoramaTV, Photography, Photoshop, Studio, Camera, Lens, Gravity-Defying by adoramatv on July 20th, 2015

http://www.adorama.com
Sometimes the best ways to make your photos stand out is by altering reality from the everyday into the unexpected and that’s exactly what Gavin Hoey does with this anti-gravity portrait shoot. No special sets or magic props are required, just a little bit of sideways thinking.
As Gavin only had single light bulb, it’s not surprising that there is some Photoshop work required for the final shot. What you may find surprising is just how quickly it can be done.

Shooting with Smoke Bombs on Location: Take and Make Great Photography with Gavin Hoey

Posted in Gavin Hoey, AdoramaTV, Photography, Camera, Lens, Canon, Shooting with Smoke Bomb by adoramatv on July 3rd, 2015

http://www.adorama.com
Smoke can be an amazing tool for photographers. It can add drama to a shot or be used to cover a distracting background. On location shoots it’s not always possible to get access to a power supply so as Gavin Hoey demonstrates, using smoke grenades is the answer.
After the shoot join Gavin in Photoshop where has matches the color of the smoke and the color of the models dress to make an amazing location fashion portrait.
