  1. I've been looking for that directional grid for the Evolv 200, but I'm not seeing it anywhere. Any idea where that can be found?

  2. Amazing! It's make fun to see how much enthusiasm you have at your work, thank you. I love noir films with the actors Humphrey Bogart or Edward G. Robinson. A special thanks for your light setup. I didn't knew how easy to create a noir style picture. With best greetings from Germany.

  3. What an inspiration! I bought the blinds and acrylic panel and did my own film noir photo using your demonstration. Wonderful to see how you do so many things in a small space.

  4. It's weird seeing this done with flash. I love old film noir movies. This makes me wonder how much the cinematographers saw these dramatic effects live through the lens as they were filming and how much of it was their deep knowledge of how film reinterperates what we see with the naked eye.

  5. You've earned a subscriber, Gavin. Very well done! There's a great deal of inspiration in your work and I appreciate it very much!

  6. The first time I heard your voice, I found it pretty annoying. Now, when I hear your voice, I put all my attention on the video, cause I know I gona learn a lot, get lots of good ideas, in a minimum of time. You are really good. Probably one of the best.

  7. Hey Gavin. Love your Adorama TV videos. I also have a small home studio so I am inspired by your work. I recently reconstructed your Film Noir Detective image adding a fake cigarette to it. I just felt the style of image required it.
    Keep up the good work and keep the videos coming. – The White Opal Photography & The White Opal Studio on FaceBook

  8. Magic – never seizes to amaze me how some basic lighting, workmanship and creativity can produce wonderful results. Of course the model part of the magic happening here! Thanks for the inspiration, time to dust off my strobes again.

  9. This rocked! Thank you for all of the tips – as it will set me up for more tips on my next vintage photo shoot. SUPER impressed by the thorough details of all that you shared from camera settings, the plexiglass, the props, and Light Room details. Appreciate this!

  10. Grande Gavin!!Imparo molto dai tuoi video sempre originali.Amo il b/w e questo genere di scatti/ritratto mi piacciono moltissimo!

  11. so Much Win! Epic! I always learn a lot with Gavin Hoey every minute counts no fluff. Great overall Noir effect without a window! Nice touch on the water rain droplets on the window. And I didn't even know about Adjust Brush and tne BW settings. Thank You!

  12. ive got to go out and do a noir photoshoot for my photography a level course this weekend, any advice or help? what pictures do include in the shoot?

  13. This is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks a bunch!
    I will probably do the shoot with one of my Mamiya medium format cameras and some classic film stock, like 400TX, which has been around since the 1940s. That way I won't need to imitate that "film look" as the image is actually shot on film (I also enjoy working with film so there's my excuse).

  14. How come the BG gets dark even though the studio is rather bright? I would like ti take these kinds of pics but do not understand how it works
