Fine Art Film Wedding in Washington, DC

Mar 31, 2015

I picked up my film camera early this past winter and had so much to learn; I had my digital foundation, but this camera looked and felt like an entirely new beast. I read the manual cover to cover, but still had so many questions. When Matoli and Kristen announced they would be hosting a Washington, DC wedding focused film photography workshop in February, I knew it would be a perfect fit — two incredibly talented artists in one place? Take my money, please! 

The workshop itself was an amazing experience, one I highly recommend to anyone who is interested in learning a bit more about medium format photography. I love that they covered when and how to use certain film stocks; I had primarily been using Fuji 400H, but now see the beauty is so many other options that will give a completely different look and feel to my work. They also covered the large difference between digital and film in terms of light. When shooting digital, we often seek to backlight out images as it creates that beautiful glow of golden haze. But in film photography, that simply decreases the contrast of the image, making it look soft and out of focus. 

I could go on and on about the many takeaways from this incredible workshop, but perhaps the most effective learning tool was watching these two photographers work during our styled shoot. It perfectly complemented everything we learned and was, of course, nothing but stunning! Enjoy some of my favorites!
