What do you rate your film at? @carriekingphotographer here with my final post for my #richardphotolabtakeover ! Portra 800 is such a light hungry film, and I generally rate it at 500, and meter in the shadows. This image was taken indoors, on a rainy day in Ireland. There was a small, diffused skylight in the center of the room, and it provided the most beautiful light and rich shadows. To capture the moody feeling, I rated my film at box speed, and had my lab push it one stop in development for some added contrast. I LOVED the results! Her skin is just glowing because the light that was coming in was so clean. So, when you are wondering if you can shoot film in low light, make sure you are evaluating the quality of your light.

It was soooo amazing sharing why I choose to shoot film and the things I have learned along the way that have made me a better photographer. Thank you @richardphotolab for being the best lab and for this takeover. Have a great weekend everyone!⠀

Day 2! Ya ready? @carriekingphotographer back to talk about those gorgeous highlights that only film can capture. It's one of my favorite things about the way that film handles light! As a wedding photographer, I want to be able to save the subtle details of a wedding gown, while still creating depth in the shadows of the groom's tux. What is your favorite thing about shooting film?
In this image, the sun had gone down behind the mountains when we finished up portraits for these two. With barely any light remaining, I took this image as the couple was walking back through the field. It ended up being one of my favorites of the day! Taken on my #Contax645 at F/2 on #KadakPortra800

@carriekingphotographer here again to chat about mixed lighting! #eeks
In a perfect world, every scene on a wedding day would be beautifully lit with soft, natural light. But, we know that can’t always happen. So, knowing when you want to turn off any artificial lighting vs. when to leave it on for some extra ambient light is key. When I evaluate a scene, I am always thinking about 3 things:⠀
- Do I want this to be in color? ⠀
-How is the available light affecting the skin tones? ⠀
-And, are the lights a part of the mood I’d like to capture? ⠀

In this scene, I wanted to leave on the light from the chandelier to add warmth and focus on the gorgeous fixture. To make the skin tones look natural, I moved my subjects closer to the natural light source until ⠀
that became my dominant light source. || Image from a workshop I hosted last year in Colorado at @wildcanyonranch

Hey film lovers! 👋🏻 @carriekingphotographer here taking over the @richardphotolab account for the next two days to share a little bit of what I’ve learned while shooting film at weddings!

I’ve had so much fun pushing film to its limits over the years, just to see what it can do. I continue to learn with every roll I shoot, and it has served me well! ❤ Familiarizing yourself with the outcome of each film in different lighting scenarios will help you become a master at your craft. I promise! That means learning from the not-so-pretty outcomes too! Too often I see film photographers getting discouraged when they have a roll of film come back with a less than desireable outcome. I am here to encourage you to keep learning, and to get excited about this beautiful art and medium!
This image was shot on #Ilford3200 with my Contax645 and Zeiss 80mm lens. The room was incredibly dark with the exception of the room behind the models. I knew the girls would likely be silhouettes, so I had them walk to create interest through the movement. ❤Image credits: Stylist @pearlandgodiva | Venue @Bantryhouse | MUAH @efcstudios @noleenmua | Model @liannsmal .
