Hoey vs Wallace: Small Studio Challenge : Take and Make Great Photography with Gavin Hoey

Posted in Adorama TV, Gavin Hoey, Behind the Scenes, Tips, Home Studio, DSLR, Backgrounds, Adoramatv by adoramatv on January 6th, 2016

http://www.adorama.com

Recently Mark Wallace challenged Gavin Hoey to photograph the same model with the same lighting gear, in the same location as he did. Using just a single speedlight and a small softbox, Gavin set out to create a shot with plenty of contrast and drama.  An old book and some powder were added as props and after a bit of experimentation with the light and a little tweak in Photoshop, the challenge was completed.
