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.

Join Gavin Hoey as he walks you through the setup of a fortune teller shoot with motivated light created in camera and then follow Gavin in to Photoshop for so simple tips and adding a realistic glow to the final photo.

Fairy lights might look bright and sparkly to our eyes but compared to flash they are very dim indeed. Balancing the two can be tricky, but as Gavin Hoey shows in this video, it’s not impossible, all you need is a little time and a model who’s good at staying still.
After the shoot follow Gavin into Photoshop where he juggles the white balance to create a really eye catching festive portrait.

Combining flash and ambient light can be tricky, but Gavin Hoey has some really simple tricks that will help. In three different setups Gavin works in both low and moderate levels of ambient light to continue his Red Riding Hood-themed shoot. Starting with the camera's meter reading, Gavin underexposes the shots and then adds flash to get the correct exposure on his subject.
After the shoot there are some great Photoshop tips including how to add beams of light with Gavin’s free light ray brushes http://www.gavtrain.com/?p=2802

Of all the backgrounds you could choose for your studio, a simple grey is possibly the most versatile. Without light it will become black but as Gavin Hoey demonstrates in this video, lighting a grey background with colored gels opens up a world of creative possibilities.
Gavin shows you just how simple it can be to alter the background color and saturation and then takes the basic principles and applies them to a fashion shoot. Finally he jumps into Photoshop to pass on some quick tips on getting matching tones in the portrait.
