Shannon Moffit + PV Takeover + Day 2

PhotoVision Team

@samoffit Takeover Lesson Five, *Movement* πŸ’ƒ: I have shot plenty of moving objects digitally, but on film, the result is like sitting on a private beach at sunset with Channing Tatum giving you a back massage . . . pure bliss. Movement can render like paint tossed beautifully across a canvas, it is just heavenly. After many failed attempts at capturing movement with film (see Lesson Three and my β€œrejects” folder in Lightroom), my most successful spinning shot has been at 1/8th of a second, while leaning the camera on a table.

@samoffit Takeover Lesson Six, *1/8th of a Second* 🌸: To expand on the topic of slow shutter speed, I have learned that film has an uncanny ability to pull through when it is dark and create beautiful images at 1/8th. Ask me to take a photo with my digital camera at 1/8th, and you will get a *very* blurry photo. Film wins the handheld, slow-shutter-speed race every time. This shot was taken while holding my breath and slowly rolling my finger on the shutter button.

@samoffit Takeover Lesson Seven, *Close-up Rings* πŸ’: I have learned a few things about close-ups since shooting film. One, it is nearly impossible to get a sharp photo at f/2 with a Hoya filter (see my β€œrejects” folder in Lightroom) and two, it’s best to err on the side of overexposing when using a filter. The Hoya macro filter works just like a 90mm or 105mm macro lens, which are typically used for close-ups or portraits. This was taken on a Contax645 through a #Zeiss80mm at f/4 with a +2 Hoya macro filter, and then cropped closer in Lightroom.

@samoffit Takeover Lesson Eight, *Metering* πŸ“·: This photo is from a personal project I did at the beginning of my film journey to explore #metering. I did not fully understand the difference between metering for shadows vs. highlights until this shoot. This image resulted from metering for highlights on the low, camera-right shoulder, bulb out, pointing back at the camera. (This image is part of a series that was featured in #RangefinderMagazine for their 2015 Photo Annual Awards.)
