Shannon Moffit + PV Takeover + Day 3

PhotoVision Team

@samoffit Takeover Lesson Nine, *Travel with Film* 🌎: 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* 🖤: 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. 🦄 I highly recommend trying out a few rolls of #Ilfordfilm if you have not.

@samoffit Takeover Lesson Eleven, *Sun Placement* ☀: As with digital photography, placing the sun just outside your lens’ 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* 👰: 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 “Like” 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 “The Weekend Wrap-up,” a video series on YouTube, that will hopefully give you some good tips and laughs.

Cody Hunter Photography + PV Takeover + Day 1

@codyhunterphotography Takeover Day 1: Classic style. I've heard it said that simplicity is the key to elegance. As a wedding photographer, I love that idea because it's how I see my overall style—simple and classic. I love clean images that tell a story with light and emotion. Classic doesn't have to mean boring, either. 😃

@codyhunterphotography Takeover Day 1: last shared on clean, classic style. When approaching each wedding, I think about what I learned in 3rd grade: KISS (Keep it simple, sweetheart). In my imagery, I translate that into the backgrounds I choose—whether it be the way I shoot details or where I photograph a couple’s portraits. I try to minimize distractions so I can keep that clean, classic look throughout a shoot, staying true to who they are, but true to my photography style, too. I'm never afraid to move things to achieve a cleaner aesthetic. I don't try to change the design of the day—but in this shot, I removed the salt & pepper shakers, pulled the centerpiece in closer and shot wide open with clean light. Shooting wide open is always an easy way to let anything messy or distracting in the background sorta just disappear. 😃 Getting-ready rooms with brides tend to be the most cluttered part of the day for me. Again—I just move things. I'll even remove "cluttery" looking art off walls. I try to make sure that where I shoot the bride getting into her gown has good light and is an environment where the focus will be on her and her beauty—so your eye doesn't wander in the photograph.

@codyhunterphotography Takeover Day 1: To round out my 3rd post on classic style . . . I often think about how trends come and go, but “classic” never goes out of style. A classic and simple portrait of a couple is powerful. As an artist, I would sometimes think "this shot is typical" but I've come to find, it's classic. While it is so great to catch the "moments"—those spontaneous, amazing, creative shots of the day (more on that tomorrow)—THIS right here, this classic style, will never go out of style. In fact, as the years go on, this may end up displayed in the home of their grandchildren . . . I really hope it does.
