Shannon Moffit + PV Takeover + Day 3

PhotoVision Team

@samoffit Takeover Lesson Nine, *Travel with Film* ๐ŸŒŽ: Just last year I started taking my Contax with me when I travel (since it is *such* a light camera), and I have really loved how photos of architecture and environments look on film through an 80mm lens. Since there is less pressure when you shoot buildings vs. paying clients, I have been able to experiment with exposures, push processing and filters, which has really helped me master the technical side of shooting film.

@samoffit Takeover Lesson Ten, *Black + White* ๐Ÿ–ค: I first learned photography in 2010, with a 35mm Canon AE-1 and 40 rolls of Kodak Tri-X. Since switching to digital, and then adding medium format to my bag of tricks, I never really thought about using the Contax to shoot black + white. (I assumed I would just convert color to b+w in post, like I do digitally.) This was one of the first rolls I shot on #Ilford3200, and the grain and richness in the lights and darks are magical unicorn status. ๐Ÿฆ„ I highly recommend trying out a few rolls of #Ilfordfilm if you have not.

@samoffit Takeover Lesson Eleven, *Sun Placement* โ˜€: As with digital photography, placing the sun just outside your lensโ€™ field of view can make a hazy, flare-filled, low-contrast image look a lot better (unless you are doing it on purpose, of course). In this image, I metered the white dress bulb out, facing my camera. Before clicking the shutter, I moved my body to the left to make sure I was not getting any direct sun in my lens.

@samoffit Takeover Lesson Twelve, *Closeups of People* ๐Ÿ‘ฐ: Macro filters can be used for other subjects besides rings. This is a close-up portrait shot using a Hoya +2 filter during a branding shoot for The Hybrid Atelier (*cue shameless self-promotion*), an educational platform I co-founded with @nikkisanterre. If you are new to #film, or looking to branch out into #hybridphotography, slap us with a โ€œLikeโ€ and join our Facebook page, The Hybrid Atelier, to keep up with discussions and news. We will be running a HUGE giveaway of photography goodies (*hopefully* within the next few months) just before launching a store full of e-books, written in collaboration with our favorite film and hybrid industry leaders. Nikki and I have also started โ€œThe Weekend Wrap-up,โ€ a video series on YouTube, that will hopefully give you some good tips and laughs.

Kristen Kilpatrick + PV Takeover + Day 2

PhotoVision Team

@kilpat Takeover Day 2: Terrence Malick is a filmmaker who sources much of his inspiration from his surroundings and nature. I always use his movie To the Wonder to give me a creative punch. The way light is incorporated into every scene is absolutely breathtaking. This shot was taken during a styled shoot as we searched for the perfect nook to host this Claire Pettibone gown. After numerous attempts, nothing was satisfying to my eye, so I drove out to some tall grass in front of the venue and placed the dress in the field. The delicate details of the gown were brought to life there.

@kilpat Takeover Day 2: I love processional shots! I think this is the most raw form of emotion that can be captured on a wedding day. The mood always starts out with smiles as ring bearers make their way down the aisle, and shifts to happy tears when the crowd sees the bride. Although I do try to be a fly on the wall during a ceremony, I am front and center in the aisle for these major moments. Don't ever let the sea of people intimidate you and stop you from what you were hired to capture!

@kilpat Takeover Day 2: Travel as often as possible! Traveling will not only enhance your understanding of the world around you but will inspire your creative process more than you could imagine. Take pictures often on your travels, as you will carry these memories with you forever. This shot was taken in Capri and I couldn't help but fall in love with this peaceful sceneโ€”symmetry, color and the Mediterranean.
