Start to Finish Workflow with Gavin Hoey

There’s photographic potential all around us, that’s one of the amazing things about photography. Usually there’s a direct connection between the distance travelled and the amount of inspiring things I find to photograph. That’s not surprising as part of the fun of being somewhere new is seeking out unusual things to photograph. The problem with that is sometimes I can miss great photo opportunities that are right under my nose.

In this exclusive TipSquirrel video I’ll show how you don’t need to travel far or use expensive camera gear to take amazing photos. All I used for this shot was a ball of string that I found in my garden and a little imagination.

In the same video I’ll also go through how I processed the image in Photoshop to achieve the final look. So you’ll experience the whole thing, from camera to computer.

In the video I use a texture and I mentioned I’ll share the link with you and any other TipSquirrel readers who want it, so here it is.

    Gavin’s tutorials are alway easy to follow and entertaining too! Thank You.

  4. I know it has little to do with the quality of the image captured, but just out of curiosity, which zoom lens is Gavin using here? The camera is a 5D Mark II, and the lens looks like a 24-105, but I have one of these, and the front element on his looks larger than mine.
