Grungy Glass Window: Take and Make Great Photography with Gavin Hoey

https://www.adorama.com

Sometimes using props that a bit old and battered in your portraits can add some real character. Of course it's not always possible to find the perfectly aged item you need and that's the case in this shoot.

In this video Gavin Hoey takes a brand new sheet of 6mm polycarbonate and sets about making it look like a grungy window. First he tries a non destructive approach with creates images that aren't what he's after.

Gavin's next idea is to scratch the surface of the sheet with a wire brush and then chip the edge of the polycarbonate with a small hatchet. The end result really does look like a grungy glass window.

In the first part of Plan It, Shoot It, Edit Gavin Hoey takes you behind the scenes as he puts together a photo shoot with a vintage explorer theme. This video covers location scouting, outfit creation and finally a test shoot.

Things don't always go smoothly and you'll see Gavin adjust his plans to cope with location issues. The weather forecast also plays it's part in disrupting the shoot, so Gavin has to come up with a back-up plan and reschedule to avoid a freezing winter blast.

Create Background Sparkle from a Sequin Dress: Take and Make Great Photography with Gavin Hoey

https://www.adorama.com

Sequin fabric looks great but from a photography point of view it's difficult to light. Hot spots and sparkly patterns will appear almost randomly which makes the light on your model very hard to control.

Fortunately photographer Gavin Hoey has a solution. His advice is not to hide from the problem but embrace the sparkles and use them to create you own instant background effect.

In this video Gavin will show you what size of light enhances the sparkly effect and tries out three different lighting styles to create very different looks.

Venice 15 Minute Photo Challenge: Take and Make Great Photography with Gavin Hoey

https://www.adorama.com

A city break is the perfect opportunity to test your photography skills and in this video Gavin Hoey takes on one of his famous "15 minute photo challenges" at the Rialto Bridge in the beautiful city of Venice, Italy.

Being a hugely popular tourist spot there's no shortage of photo opportunities but as well as the "must have" shots, Gavin goes in search of the less obvious images. To make it more challenging Gavin has two uses. Rule 1, he can only use one lens and rule 2, he only has 15 minutes to take all the photos.
