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.

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.

One of the great things about beauty lighting with flash is once it's set you'll get the same consistent light shot after shot. The set and forget aspect of beauty light means you can work on the more advanced aspects of your shot such as styling, extra lighting and the models hair and make-up.

There's endless opportunities to customize the basic beauty lighting. In this video portrait photographer Gavin Hoey shows you how using some extra lights can radically alter the shot, before adding a super simple prop to create an amazing final photo.
