Adorama TV Presents Take and Make Great Photography with Gavin Hoey. Taking great portraits in a home studio has its challenges, but here Gavin makes shows you how it's not as challenging as you think.

One of the first light modifiers most photographers buy is an umbrella. In this video, Gavin gives you two very different uses for the translucent shoot-through umbrella. You'll discover just how this versatile lighting tool can be used to create moody headshots and evenly lit shots in a small studio.

After taking the photos, follow Gavin into Photoshop CC where he combines five photos to produce a very unique portrait sequence.
