How to create Double Exposure and Light Leaks in Film Photography - Wendy Laurel at Photo Native

Double exposures. Light leaks. Deeply Colorful images. Film Photography

Wendy Laurel - Unique Film Photography Master

This shoot with Wendy Laurel embodies all the whimsical excitement of Palm Springs, where Photo Native was held this past February 2019.

As part of the learning experience, Wendy Laurel - who joined us all the way from Hawaii - taught an amazing group of attendees during a quirky and fun shoot-and-learn opportunity at the colorful Saguaro Hotel, the perfect backdrop for all things Wendy!

Wendy Laurel is the MASTER of colorful, emotive imagery using film as her medium.

Iconic Wendy says :

I am more interested in the feeling you get when you look at an image than making sure it’s technically perfect
— Wendy Laurel

Her class attendees learned directly from her, the exact steps she takes when working with clients to create the kind of vibrant, emotion-filled, and unforgettable images she is so well known and sought out for.

During the shoot, Kodak Professional, one of our cherished sponsors, was on-hand giving out film freely to all those who were with Wendy! Class attendees worked on using the model’s natural movements to pose organically and effectively as well as playing with color to tell a compelling story, of course with Wendy guiding them. They also explored the use of sun flare, double exposures, light leaks, and other experimental techniques. This rare opportunity to be taught in-person by Wendy produced beautiful results that pushed and stretched attendees outside their comfort zones and created images that changed the way they approached film photography in their own work!

Keep Scrolling to see her and all the magic she and her attendees saw and worked with! If you are interested in being a part of something like this, YOU BELONG HERE!

A Photo Native shoot is an intimate learning experience where photographers not only create stunning portfolio images, but an opportunity to learn the method behind how some of the industry leading photographers work their magic.

I Am A Photo Native: Baylie Longenecker - Featured Photo Native Attendee

"Growing up, I always knew what I wanted to be-a photographer. Since I was 4 years old, when people would ask me what I wanted to be when I grew up I always had the same answer “I’m going to be a photographer”. After I got married I got super burnt out, I felt that my work didn’t portray how I felt about photography, the passion I had always felt for this art was leaving, and I couldn’t hear my voice among the thousands of talented photographer voices out there, and I honestly didn’t know the first thing about business, I was trying to do everything by myself and from YouTube videos I was watching. I was ready to quit. My sweet husband, who knew how badly I loved photography, had heard of Photo Native and surprised me with a ticket on my birthday. He told me that if I went to Photo Native and still wanted to quit then I could and he would have to be ok with it, but he really thought from what he read that it would fuel my photography fire again. And he was right. 

Photo Native was everything a photographer could hope for and more. It made me excited for photography again, it taught me things I didn’t even know I needed to learn, it reset and refreshed my love for photography and it pointed me to the direction I needed to go. It didn’t just have fun photography classes but it also had the BUSINESS side of things which was huge for me! Since Photo Native I have hit every photography goal I have set for myself, I went from doing maybe one wedding a year to doing at least one wedding a month! It gave me a voice. It made me feel like I truly belong. I went to Photo Native a week after I had an emergency c-section and didn’t regret one second I spent there (thank you ibuprofen) THAT SHOULD TELL YOU HOW AMAZING IT IS. You belong at Photo Native if you haven’t already bought that ticket! It will change your life, and if that sounds dramatic it’s because it is. Photo Native is a place for you to find your voice, to find your passion, and to be surrounded by talented creatives who will inspire you and uplift you. It’s a community. A community where YOU belong. "
