Loft Photography + PV Takeover + Day 2

PhotoVision Team

@loftphotography Takeover Day 2: If we had photographed this sequence digitally, there may have been 50 frames to choose from. But since we were shooting film, we just snapped a few images that happened to be our favorites from the day.

If you are just starting to shoot film, you will realize, very quickly, that IT'S. NOT. CHEAP. Consequently, you learn to slow down and make each shot count. Film challenged us to get out of the "overshooting" habit that often develops when shooting digitally. Keeping costs in mind forced us to create slowly and with more intention while photographing weddings—which directly impacted how we shoot digitally. Regardless of if we’re holding a digital or film camera, we take the extra time to get the exposure just right in camera and carefully consider the composition of each frame, saving us lots of time in post-production. 😉

@loftphotography Takeover Day 2: This image was shot on the last roll of the day. We were running out of light and were hesitant to even shoot another roll. We are so glad we did, because these two lovebirds busted out some dance moves that resulted in some fun, emotion-filled moments. The digital version of these frames were WAY too blue to salvage, but the film images stayed true to the actual lighting . . .and that, my friends, is why we love film! 🎞

@loftphotography Takeover Day 2: When you're running a business, you quickly realize how precious your time is. Add kids to the equation, and your time becomes even that much more valuable. As moms running a business from our homes, we've loved how film has given us back time for the things that matter most, like changing diapers and wiping runny noses. 😉 When exposed correctly, film requires much less post-production. So, instead of sitting under a huge pile of images to be narrowed down and edited, shooting film has allowed us to walk away from the screens and have more face time with the ones we love. 👍

Kristen Kilpatrick + PV Takeover + Day 1

PhotoVision Team

@kilpat Takeover Day 1: I truly believe that for any artist there is always one project that scares you half to death. The reasons for fear can often times look different, but ultimately derive from the fear of failing. For me, this shoot was something I mentally prepped for since the moment we put it on the schedule. PhotoVision was my biggest cheerleader. I'll never forget talking on the phone to @brian.wood for 45 minutes about the process of shooting film, lighting and tips he so kindly shared with me. It was during this shoot that I realized PV is much more than a film lab. They are not only your family within the industry, but more importantly, at the end of the day, your sideline cheerleaders. They want each shoot to turn out as successful as you do, and simply knowing that gives you so much peace.

@kilpat Takeover Day 1: Details! I love details! There is so much creative freedom within these shots. And can we take a moment to appreciate the fact that details (sans wind) don't move?! I love to take my time with the major details from a wedding day, pulling subject matter from the day (like flowers and colors) to make one thematic composition. Details have so much power to tell a beautiful story.

@kilpat Takeover Day 1: Much of my inspiration comes from art, fashion and films. Wes Anderson’s films have always struck an inner cord. I love his use of color and unfailing use of symmetry.

@kilpat Takeover Day 1: Aside from the arts, another major inspiration to my work is light play and the environment. I love the fusion of these two natural elements. There is no bigger or better tool than light! I was born with a passion for all things equine, so I'm instantly drawn to any composition involving them! This picture was taken about 30 minutes before sunset. The light was soft and the evening was perfectly still.
