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.

Posted in Photo, podcast, Gavin Hoey, AdoramaTV, Photography, Photoshop, Studio, Camera by adoramatv on May 11th, 2015

http://www.adorama.com
As a general rule of thumb photographers try and keep the source of their light out of their photos. However there are times when you need to see the light glowing in the photo and that’s known as a motivated light. It can be the sun, a window, a lamp or in this case a glowing crystal ball
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.
