Heather Hawkins + PV Takeover + Day 3

@heatherhawkins Takeover Day 3: Shooting film pushes me to be a better photographer, forcing me to be present in the moment and take the time to compose something meaningful. The intentionality behind each frame is one of my favorite parts of shooting film.

@heatherhawkins Takeover Day 3: This is one of my favorite images, styled and directed by @ginnyau, someone I am often inspired by. To incorporate movement here, we held a fan off to the right of the model—simple things like that can help humanize an image and add a layer of emotion. I love capturing the femininity of a bride by focusing on her hands, lips, shoulders, etc. Thank you so much for following along these past three days, I hope you enjoyed seeing some of my work and hearing my perspective! I’m signing off here, but would love for you to follow me over at @heatherhawkins! Please feel free to ask me any questions, I would love to hear from you!

Heather Hawkins + PV Takeover + Day 2

@heatherhawkins Takeover Day 2: Depth, density and rich colors are the result of correct exposure and a wise lab. Fuji + PhotoVision is an exceptional combination that helps me deliver a detail shot like this, all while maintaining highlights and giving the image a softer feel. I like to shoot tablescape details in open shade if possible, and always ask the florist which arrangement is his or her favorite, so I can focus on that particular one.

@heatherhawkins Takeover Day 2: Dallas, Texas doesn’t have an abundance of lavender fields or foggy coasts, so sometimes you have to get creative and shoot in your own bathroom! For this “getting ready” image, @bowsandarrowsflowers foraged greenery from my backyard, @kylieswanson styled a simple wedding gown and the model, @alexeatsplants_,wore my grandmother’s onyx ring. Sometimes less is more! This was shot with a 1/8 second shutter speed on a Contax 645 with a Zeiss 80mm on Fuji 400. I always have a tripod with me for low light situations such as this!

Heather Hawkins + PV Takeover + Day 1

Stephen Wood

Hello! @heatherhawkins here. I’m honored to be taking over @photovisionprints for the next couple of days! I’ll be sharing some of my favorite images and what went into making each frame. It is awesome to watch the resurgence of film these past few years and to see all the wonderful talent that PhotoVision attracts. Like many of you, I have found the customer service at PhotoVision to be incomparable, and have been working with them ever since. Because of the technical nature of photography as an art form, it is so important to have an open flow of communication with your lab. With PhotoVision, I have never felt so valued as a customer. Establishing a personal connection was instantaneous, and I couldn’t be happier with our relationship and the work they deliver for me time and time again. If you are an introverted photographer, like myself (this is why I stay behind the camera), trust me when I say you can feel comfortable calling PhotoVision to ask the team anything. They are excellent at pinpointing issues and helping you find solutions. Communicate with your lab, it can only help you achieve your Vision.

@heatherhawkins Takeover Day 1: Film provides a nostalgic, yet timeless feel, and I love creating within that tension. This was a test shoot where I pushed expired Portra 160 to capture the mood I desired, and it worked so well. I realize it’s not groundbreaking to photograph a model in cloudy window light, but it was a fun opportunity for me to grow and try something new. I came away from this shoot with a fresh perspective. If you can, make time to shoot something for yourself to stay inspired.
