We did Nick & Evelyn’s wedding a few weeks ago and now it was time for the Trash the Dress shoot. For this TTD we were going to get the dress a bit wet and dirty, and try to be more creative we could normally be on a wedding day.

It was a gorgeous winters day for the shoot… but there was a cool wind on the beach, so we only got wet towards the end of the shoot. But we got some cool images with the waves crashing into the rocks… beautiful and romantic.

Trash The Dress Photoshoot October 8, 2008

I have three shots from a recent Trash The Dress Photoshoot. The day was rainy, gray, and offered little light. We used some 1200W spots, which were not nearly enough but as I don’t have a lot of equipment, I made due. This particular shoot was the concept of the filmographer. I was basically assigned to get what I could while not interfering with his film positioning, lighting, etc. However, I was allowed to set up the shot of the subject being doused with paint.

I used a Nikon D50 with wide angle lens. I was forced to use an ISO setting of 800, which as you know, is not ideal on a D50. Grain is apparent at over 100% viewing. Still, the shots are unique, especially the two with paint, and might offer a different perspective of Trashing the Dress. We took that concept literally.

The day was fun in spite of the bad conditions and many of those who have seen my work are inquiring about how they can do a similar shoot.
