Underwater Portrait Shoot: Take and Make Great Photography with Gavin Hoey


In another Secret Portrait Challenge Gavin Hoey get’s thrown in at the deep end with an mystery underwater shoot using a mermaid tank.

As this is a secret photography challenge and with no prior knowledge of the location or subject, Gavin starts by solving the most important question on any shoot, how do I light the scene? Luckily he gets to work with a highly experienced underwater model who takes care of the modelling and came with a selection of dresses, floaty fabric and even a mermaid costume.
