@nikkisanterre Takeover Day 3: I used to be so intimidated by the thought of shooting film indoors, until I deliberately made time to practice and compare film stocks in various indoor lighting situations. Most of what I’ve learned has been through trial and error. When I mentor other photographers who desire to shoot more film, I encourage them to photograph the same set of objects (an invitation suite, collection of heirlooms or a floral arrangement) in the same light on different film stocks. We label their rolls, have them processed the same, and then compare the final results. It was this method that helped me truly learn my own film stock preferences.

@nikkisanterre Takeover Day 3: It wasn’t until my own struggle with infertility that I realized the privilege of being invited into a mother’s season of waiting for her child. Motherhood is intertwined with some of the most intimate of moments—some of my favorite to capture. There was a time when I was told I needed to choose a specialty, that I couldn’t possibly shoot both weddings and families well. I’m glad I chose to ignore that advice, because had I listened, I would have missed out on some of the most fulfilling and meaningful work of my life.
@nikkisanterre Takeover Day 3: James Keller said, “A candle loses nothing of its light by lighting another candle.” When I made the decision to pursue film, I was so intimidated by the industry that it took me six months to finally build up the courage to send in my first test rolls. If it weren’t for the encouragement of my mentors, I may never have continued down this artistic road that has since completely changed my life. In an effort to bridge the gap in hybrid film education, Shannon Moffit and I have partnered to create The Hybrid Atelier, an online educational platform for photographers interested in exploring the realm of film photography. We have collaborated with some of the best in the industry to curate content that we’ll be ready to deliver over the next few months.
