@maria.lamb Takeover Day 2: Have fun and try new things, this will encourage growth and keep you inspired. This photo was actually my first attempt to try a double exposure on film. I unknowingly ended up with a triple exposure! When you take risks and try things you haven’t done before, you can end up with something better than you expected. Definitely try a double (or triple) exposure if you haven’t before, just not at a wedding or paid gig! Start first with a simple frame—a couple against the sky or a person’s profile against a white wall. Then, you can try snapping your second frame—using fabric, flowers, mountains or trees. Just experiment and see what happens. Pro tip! If you own a DSLR, it may already have a double-exposure feature built in. If so, test it out. This is a great (free!) way to play around in-camera and see your results right away. Then, when it comes to shooting double exposures on film, you will feel more confident!

@maria.lamb Takeover Day 2: Things don’t always pan out the way you think they will, am I right? I've learned to roll with the unexpected and make the best of it. After our venue fell through for the #sinclairandmoorworkshop just days before it started, @sinclaireandmoore had to rethink things and quickly find another venue. This led to us using his own studio, which was pretty awesome and absolutely stunning. But the light there was . . . well, there wasn't much of it. I almost ended up shooting all digital because I wasn't sure film could handle the low light. But after having a quick phone chat with @brian.wood at @photovisionprints, I decided to shoot Fuji 400 after all and push the rolls 2 stops. Although this isn't something I would recommend doing just for the fun of it, it really saved my butt, and look how gorgeous it turned out! You wouldn't even know we were lacking light, right?

@maria.lamb Takeover Day 2: This photo is in here just because PhotoVision is awesome and I didn’t have to make any adjustments to it in post. I love the raw emotion here. I’ll often try to get my clients to move during a shoot, as it makes them feel more comfortable than standing stagnant and posing. In this image, I told them to practice their first dance. You can also ask the groom to whisper something into his bride’s ear—this always gets her to laugh. I like to give my clients space, or have them walk away from me, so they feel like they're more private and not stuck in front of a camera. This will get them more relaxed and talking to each other.
