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.
