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.
