Shoot Daytime Long Exposures - In the middle of the day a 10 stop neutral density filter is the perfect tool for extending your exposure time and creating amazing shots. With long exposures static subjects remain sharp but any movement becomes soft and blurred.

Getting the best from these filters requires a little bit of planning and in this video photographer Gavin Hoey explains the steps you need to get perfect long exposure shots. And as Gavin discovers, the beautiful city of Venice is the perfect place to capture long exposure photos.

Shallow Depth of Field Studio Portraits

Shallow Depth of Field Studio Portraits - look amazing but getting a good shot with flash is more tricky then you might think. Using flash technology like High Speed Sync (HSS) makes shooting wide open, whilst overpowering the ambient light, simple. In this video Gavin Hoey takes a more low tech approach and shows you how to shoot manual flash, in a bright home studio and still get portraits with amazing blurred backgrounds.
