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.

Limited Color Palette Portraits: Take and Make Great Photography with Gavin Hoey

https://www.adorama.com

Less is more is a great tip for portrait photographers and in this video Gavin Hoey shows you how limiting your colour palette can create portraits that really pop.

Gavin starts with a blue background and adds blue props, make-up and outfit to the model to get the colors to match. Then the model swaps to a red look and Gavin creates a matching background by using colored gels on to a great background in his small home studio.
