Justine Milton + PV Takeover

Stephen Wood

We were so excited to have @miltonphoto takeover our feed for the past three days! It was great having you, Justine! Don't miss her Luminous Workshop, which runs May 15-18, 2016 in Calgary, Alberta and the Rocky Mountains. Registration is now open! For more information, visit www.justinemilton.com/workshops.

I am so excited to be doing my first ever IG takeover! I learned the most about film from Stephen wood, through trial and error and lots of hours on the phone, his feedback, tips and tricks have drastically improved my film work over the past couple years! I am so thankful to have such a fabulous lab to help me along the way! I want to start with this frame . . .  The mountains make the most gorgeous setting for weddings. When the weather was bad, we waited out the rain for over an hour, but when it cleared, the sky was gorgeous and the sun was just setting. #justinesvision #pvtakeover #contax645 #fuji400h #photovisionprints #sp3000 #fujifilm @birdsandhoney @delicabridal @misshayleypaige @annekeforbes @asanderson1 @theprettyhaus @fujifilm_northamerica 

Friends are one of the greatest gifts we have in this world, and getting to capture these incredible connections is amazing. @miltonphoto #justinesvision #pvtakeover #contax645 #fuji400h #photovisionprints #sp3000 #fujifilm @birdsandhoney @madisonmikhail @fujifilm_northamerica  

Mountain air is different. Every time I am in the mountains, it’s not just breathtaking, it’s refreshing—a way to reset thoughts and search for new inspiration. @miltonphoto #justinesvision #pvtakeover #contax645 #fuji400h #photovisionprints #sp3000 #fujifilm @fujifilm_northamerica 

Letting go of control and letting real moments unfold is sometimes best. Big wind gusts blow veils and hair all over the place, occasionally in the right direction. Getting your clients to relax and go with the flow leads to natural smiles. I love a genuine moment. @miltonphoto  #justinesvision #pvtakeover #contax645 #fuji400h #photovisionprints #sp3000 #fujifilm @fujifilm_northamerica 

Sometimes, to get the look you want, you just have to make a mess and throw things down. Perfect, careful placement doesn’t always work. @miltonphoto #justinesvision #pvtakeover #contax645 #fuji400h #photovisionprints #sp3000 #fujifilm @asanderson1 @birdsandhoney @layersofloveliness @fujifilm_northamerica 

I was hesitant to use black and white film for a while. Knowing that I can’t change it back to color was a daunting thought. But once I started, I fell in love with it! There are less distractions with black and white and more focus on the subject. Something about the nostalgia of a black and white print really brings the moment to life for me. @miltonphoto #justinesvision #pvtakeover #contax645 #Ilford3200 #photovisionprints #sp3000 @birdsandhoney @btrain_ @emilyforblushed @ilfordimaging

Every photo you take should be able to stand on its own as a piece of art. No matter the subject, the size or significance, every image should speak for itself. @miltonphoto #justinesvision #pvtakeover #contax645 #fuji400h #photovisionprints #sp3000 #fujifilm @fujifilm_northamerica 

 No matter where you are, there is always a stunning location to be found if you look hard enough. @miltonphoto #justinesvision #pvtakeover #contax645 #fuji400h #photovisionprints #sp3000 #fujifilm @sarahmayersondesign @ecweddings @pearlanddot @espyexperience @lifesetsail @fujifilm_northamerica

Sometimes it’s hard to control large groups. The best way to work with groups is to give up control and just let them be natural! @miltonphoto #justinesvision #pvtakeover #contax645 #fuji400h #photovisionprints #sp3000 #fujifilm @delicabridal @truvellebridal @donnamorgan_nyc @derksformals @fabloomosity @kaaatiethomas @fujifilm_northamerica

Boudoir is sometimes hard to photograph—the battle between making it sexy, but tasteful. It took me over three years to find my style in boudoir. I’ve finally done it now, and I opted for a more natural aesthetic—no heels, no glamorous done-up hair or makeup. I want my client to feel comfortable, yet I want a certain vulnerability to come through in the images. @miltonphoto #justinesvision #pvtakeover #contax645 #fuji400h #photovisionprints #sp3000 #fujifilm @noviamiabridal @fujifilm_northamerica

Sometimes the things that inspire you can be very simple. Rather than always using an outdoor location, I’ve been pushing myself to shoot indoors more. I love the challenge! And sometimes, when you have a space this gorgeous, it’s not a challenge at all! @miltonphoto #justinesvision #pvtakeover #contax645 #fuji400h #photovisionprints #sp3000 #fujifilm @nicolleemcneill @parkwood_homes @fujifilm_northamerica

A styled shoot with industry peers feeds the creative soul. Getting to photograph and create such beautiful scenes is always a treat. @miltonphoto #justinesvision #pvtakeover #contax645 #fuji400h #photovisionprints #sp3000 #fujifilm @virginiaroseevents @fujifilm_northamerica 

Snow is gorgeous. Wintertime makes for incredible images, but the sun sets fast and it’s not as bright as other times of the year. Still, snow makes the best natural reflector. @miltonphoto #justinesvision #pvtakeover #contax645 #fuji400h #photovisionprints #sp3000 #fujifilm @delicabridal @truvellebridal @kirburg @fujifilm_northamerica 

When posing my clients, I try to give them actions or directions rather than traditionally posing them. This way, they fall into a natural pattern, and the results are much more flattering and genuine. @miltonphoto #justinesvision #pvtakeover #contax645 #fuji400h #photovisionprints #sp3000 #fujifilm @birdsandhoney @delicabridal @misshayleypaige @annekeforbes @asanderson1 @theprettyhaus @fujifilm_northamerica  

The mountains are an enchanting place and I am so excited to be teaching a film photography workshop there this spring! . . . Thank you for following along with Justine's takeover this week!
