Rebecca Hollis + PVTakeover + Day 1

PhotoVision Team

Hi folks! @rebeccahollisphotography here, I am so excited to be hosting a #pvtakeover this week! I wanted to take a second to introduce myself. Originally from Northern Wisconsin (yes, I’m true to the stereotype of loving cheese and beer), I moved west 10 years ago and have spent the past 5 years living and loving in inimitable Montana. I love living, working and engaging with the beautiful landscapes of Montana everyday! I am best known for the honesty of my images, my organic style and client experience. Film has a diaphanous, resplendent rawness and its ability to capture light and hold it is unlike any other medium I have used. It is organic and brings life to my images. It translates my imagery in the way I intend it to be seen and felt.

@rebeccahollisphotography #pvtakeover Day 1 // Details // Being a perfectionist, I have found styling details to be one of the most difficult things. I often like to use elements of the wedding day that I can’t bring home with me — a table linen, the groom boutonniere, etc. So I encourage my clients to send me 2 copies of each paper good prior to the wedding day, so I can take the time needed to design the suite ahead of time, allowing the process to go much quicker and smoother on their wedding day.

@rebeccahollisphotography #pvtakeover Day 1 // Authenticity // To me, authenticity is everything. Film pushes me by forcing me to slow down to truly capture those fleeting moments. Although I have a rockstar assistant loading backs while I am shooting, my #Contax645 has 16 exposures per roll, meaning I am very aware of how many frames I have left before pausing to insert a new roll. While doing so, I am taking that time to observe my couple’s interactions in a more honest state, then I take those interactions into the next roll. Not to mention each time I hit the shutter it costs me, so create intentionally with each and every frame—release your shutter when it counts.

@rebeccahollisphotography #pvtakeover Day 1 // Vendors // Weddings are never a “one-man-show”, it truly takes a village. Working with vendors who inspire me is a game changer, I not only strive to create beautiful, timeless images for my clients and my portfolio, but for every single vendor involved. Approaching a wedding is never an individual task, it is a little piece of everyone who helps make it beautiful, from florists to film lab (thanks @photovisionprints!).

@rebeccahollisphotography #pvtakeover Day 1 // Failure // I have a difficult time with failure. (Really, who doesn’t?!) I had an amazing couple and their wedding, to this day, is one of my favorites—ever! However, it brought its fair share of challenges. The day was rainy, cold and running WAY behind, so we only had 15 minutes for their portraits. When they received their gallery, they weren’t happy with these portraits, and I can’t say I blamed them as their options were limited due to the time and weather constraints. So, when I got their email of disappointment, my heart just sank #worstfeelingintheworld. To help rectify the situation, I scheduled a follow-up portrait session with the bride and groom. I learned from this experience I can only do my best and give it my all. I can’t say I don’t think often about it, though.

Infectious smiles for #SundayFunday! 🖤🎞 Photo by @kelbertmcfarland. "I always try to end my sessions with a roll of #trixfilm in my #35mm and an uninterrupted time where my clients are able to be themselves, enjoy themselves. I give no direction and I simply document. This shot is from the first session where I did this. It's also my favorite session. I would encourage all photographers to do something like this at some point during your sessions. You'll be surprised at what you capture. You can tell they are crazy about each other and the moment they are sharing together." — Kelbert McFarland

Blue Rose Pictures + Fuji400H + Contax645

PhotoVision Team

Sail away with me my love! We are loving this sweet capture by @bluerosepictures! ⛵❤ "Stephanie contacted me from Texas where she lives and told me her and her fiancé Greg would be coming to Seattle to elope before their sailing trip around the San Juan Islands. She originally was going to elope at the Four Seasons Hotel. But she told me she really wished she could get married near water and sailboats as they are both avid sailors and feel the most at home near the water. I told her about the #centerforwoodenboats, which is one of Seattle's little unknown gems on Lake Union. My husband and I actually got married here three years ago. When she saw it she was so elated and happy, she said it was the perfect place for them to get married . . . I knew they wanted to capture the beautiful wooden boats in their portraits so I had them step into one of the docked boats and cuddle up. I saw a small sailboat coming back in from a distance and it was just one of those moments that you cant plan that is just awesome, I told them to wait for it and that when it got closer I wanted them to kiss, I took the shot right before it passed and I think the red boat ads so much visually to the photo.

Rachel Gómez + PV Takeover + Day 3

PhotoVision Team

@rachelgomezdotcom #pvtakeover Day 3 // Collaborate // For three years, I’ve worked with designer Rebecca Schoneveld to photograph her lookbook. I always look forward to seeing her newest designs and being inspired by the locations she’s chosen. This image was taken last year in New York as the sun was setting. Every year, this shoot feeds my creativity. We just completed our third shoot together in September, just in time for Bridal Fashion Week.

@rachelgomezdotcom #pvtakeover Day 3 // Get Personal // Photographing the important people in your life allows you to get so much closer to intimate moments like this. When my clients have to stop a session to feed their baby, I usually give them privacy. This time, my client happened to be a very dear friend, who requested an image of her breastfeeding her daughter. It’s such an intimate moment, and a fleeting one at that. This is one of my all time favorite images.

@rachelgomezdotcom #pvtakeover Day 3 // Get Lost // India has been my biggest source of inspiration since visiting last year. I shot 60 rolls of film, but this is my favorite single image. It had nothing to do with weddings, portraits, publication or my portfolio, and that’s part of what I love about it. It was a real moment that I was a part of, instead of being there as a vendor. This man and his wife invited us into their home for chai, made over an open fire. This photo captures so much of the real memory, it always takes me back.

@rachelgomezdotcom #pvtakeover Day 3 // One for Thee, One for Me // I had a teacher who used to repeat that phrase to us. Shoot for your client, and then shoot for yourself. Ring shots have always been a challenge for me, so I try to get one every time that is entirely new and different. I get what my client wants and what works for publication, but then try something totally different. Many times I fail, but then I get a photo like this one.

PhotoVision Team

@rachelgomezdotcom #pvtakeover Day 2 // Shoot More Black + White Film // Last year, I attended Michael and Carina’s workshop in Italy. During this shoot, I ran out of color film, so I switched to Ilford 3200 and loved the results. I almost never make a point to shoot black + white film at weddings unless it’s too dark for color. Remind yourself to shoot at least one roll of B+W at a shoot or wedding. Sidenote: don’t be afraid to stick with your #filmlab. This workshop included a discount at another lab, but I knew I wanted to work with #PhotoVision for all of my images.

@rachelgomezdotcom #pvtakeover Day 2 // Dark with Detail // As a student of the Zone System, I’ve always loved dark with detail. This photo, also from Michael and Carina’s workshop, was created by turning the model away from the window. I metered for the highlights, then the shadows and averaged the two to get my exposure. I checked this with my spot meter to make sure the detail of the rings and lace wouldn’t be lost.

@rachelgomezdotcom #pvtakeover Day 2 // Everyday Objects as Art // Challenge yourself to see simple objects as works of art, and photograph them as though they command such attention. This is one of my favorite photos from this shoot, mainly because it’s so simple, while reminding me of a painting. It wasn’t planned, but caught my eye while I was shooting other details.

@rachelgomezdotcom #pvtakeover Day 2 // Try Out New Film Stocks // We all have our favorites and we tend to stick with them. For me, the combination of #Fuji400H and #Portra800 get the job done, giving me beautiful and consistent images that support my brand. That said, I’m so happy I shot this sunset with #Ektar. The tones and color were so much more dramatic (I also shot Fuji for my own comparison). Using the same #filmlab can help you maintain consistency, while giving you room to play with other film options.

Rachel Gómez + PV Takeover + Day 1

PhotoVision Team

Hey there, I’m @rachelgomezdotcom and I love the smell of developer in the morning. I’m a film nerd and have been since the age of 9, and even more so after graduating from Brooks Institute of Photography. Seriously, I didn’t even know how to format a digital card until two months before graduation. 

Around this time of year, I get “October Tired.” I feel exhausted from wedding season. This is when I feel inspired to create personal shoots, travel for fun and create work for myself. So that’s going to be the theme of my takeover—Getting Inspired and Out of Your Comfort Zone. Every post includes an image I love, advice to help you get inspired, try something new, along with some technical advice on how to get there. 

Thanks for following along! — Rachel

@rachelgomezdotcom #pvtakeover Day 1 // Find a Muse // I found Emily on Instagram, we were both fascinated by each other. We spent a few hours at a local gallery, shooting for fun. Some of my favorite images came from that day, and it had nothing to do with business, clients or publication. We played with movement, minimalism, expired film and the idea of creating a self portrait through a muse.

@rachelgomezdotcom #pvtakeover Day 1 // Shoot Inside // Window light has always inspired me, especially in Renaissance paintings. This entire shoot was created indoors, using mostly window light. It was fun to play with angles to create different moods and colors. The challenge to work indoors helped me to see light that much better.

@rachelgomezdotcom #pvtakeover Day 1 // Create Your Own Light // When I started planning this shoot, I knew I wanted to use this textured wall, but the existing light was terrible. I brought in two large continuous lights to recreate the window light from the rest of the shoot. It gave us more options for how we could use the space, and created beautiful catch lights in the model’s eyes.

@rachelgomezdotcom #pvtakeover Day 1 // Shoot Wide and Horizontal // I’m guilty of sticking with the 80mm lens on my Contax 90% of the time. And I have to remind myself to shoot horizontal images. There are images that just don’t conform to my usual set up, like this portrait taken in a narrow hallway. I switched to the 45mm lens to capture more of the space and went horizontal to play with the reflection.

Bright + flirty editorials? All-day-every-day! ✨🎀✨ @rosencrownphoto proves you should never stop chasing your daydreams! "Don't be afraid to seek after what you desire. As creatives, it can be easy to hold ourselves back. We play the comparison game by seeing someone else producing the work we aren't quite capable of yet, and then stay where we are paralyzed by our fears and self doubts. For years, I was drawn to and inspired by these beautiful, delicate, imperfect images before I finally realized these images were film and not digital! At the time, I had never shot a roll of film in my life. But, I took a chance and challenged myself creatively and fell in love. That was a year and a half ago. I can confidently say that while I am still growing, the risk of trying something new without being afraid of failing has changed me and my work in the best of ways. So, if there is something that is inspiring you and you feel like you're not good enough to do it yourself, you're probably right! But, that's because you haven't taken your first steps in that direction yet. Go! And don't be afraid to seek what you desire. You might surprise yourself." — Amy of Rosencrown Photography

"Take your time to get warmed up with kids before you start pointing the camera towards them. This helps you build a connection with them and it will make it easier for them to participate in the shoot." — Tanja Kibogo
