Callie Manion + PV Takeover + Day 2

PhotoVision Team

Gear

@calliemanionphotography #pvtakeover Day 2: Now what I’m about to say may be a controversial topic . . . I don’t shoot with a Contax. *Gasp!* I know! But before you throw those dagger emojis or quickly go unfollow me, let me explain! 😉 You can create gorgeous imagery with any system—you just need to find what works for you. Personally, I shoot 99% of the time with my #Mamiya645af. I use my 80mm f/2.8 AF lens for detail shots, group portraits and ceremonies where I’m shooting around f/2.8–4.0 and like the quick auto focus. Then, when it comes time for portraits, I switch to my 80mm f/1.9 manual lens, where I typically shoot wide open to get that creamy bokeh, like you see in this photo! I also will throw on my 55mm for wider shots throughout the day.

Don't Lose Yourself

@calliemanionphotography #pvtakeover Day 2: Why are we photographers? Most likely it’s because we didn’t fit into the mold of an office job and yearned to create art and express ourselves while also making money. I know that’s the case for me! Do I like sitting behind a desk for hours at a time? Nope! But do I have to do it in order to maintain my business? Of course! Any time I feel like I’m about to shut down and just want to run away from it all, I realize it’s because I haven’t created enough. And I don’t just mean shooting weddings every weekend. I mean taking time to create for myself! It doesn’t have to be an over-the-top styled shoot. Take this photo for example: My brother and his wife asked me to take a few photos of them as they were graduating college. I told them I'd do one for them and one for me 😉 so we drove out to the beautiful Bonneville Salt Flats, I had them bring some nice outfits in addition to the ones they had picked out, and I just shot for ME—and this is what resulted!

Pick a Theme

@calliemanionphotography #pvtakeover Day 2: Have a central theme to your business and let that speak in your photos. I tell all my brides, before they even become clients, that I want to promote MARRIAGE. I believe in the power of strong marriages, and I want to see love win, every time. So I always try to bring my images back to that—to love, to marriage and to what is really important.

Don't Forget the Details

@calliemanionphotography #pvtakeover Day 2: I love being able to shoot portraits because I am able to really connect with my subjects and seeing their emotion fuels me. But I have to remind myself to stop and care for the details just as much. Capturing the scene, the jewelry, the flowers . . . it all helps to tell a couple’s full story, which is exactly what I aim to do for every bride and groom.
