No rest for the wicked! Still shattered and exhausted from yesterday’s wedding, I was off into the Dales this afternoon to shoot Natalie’s ‘trash the dress’ part two! Regular visitors will remember Natalie’s ‘Celebrate the Dress’ shoot on the millstone grit outcrops of Derbyshire a few weeks ago, but not content will huge vistas and golden sunsets, Natalie wanted to get the dress wet. So, it was off to my favourite trash the dress waterfalls in the Dales to try and get her some images to finish off the album.
Despite the glorious weather when I headed from home at around 2:30pm today, it clouded over and we had heavy rain for the whole of the shoot. It wasn’t so much the rain we were bothered about, after all, we were both deep in the icy waters of the plunge pool beneath the falls! No, it was the low light levels that caused the problems – it’s difficult to drag the shutter to bring in the background without going so slow that motion blur and ghosting set in. Photography is not as easy as some folks would have you believe :¬o
Even if you didn’t have your wedding shot by me, you can still make up for it and get your ‘trash the dress’ shoot done professionally :¬) And don’t forget, it doesn’t have to be a wedding dress – why not do an unusual shoot in your prom dress?!!
