Trash the Dress, watch it all happen in 1 photograph- this image was taken last week during my bridal trash the dress session with Randi, my bride from my Catalina wedding in August of this year. For this image I set my tripod up in a spot where I knew I could capture the full spectrum of everything happening within the frame. I then had Randi go from start to finish, getting her dress caught, and then we would cut with scissors. Each shot of her is a different picture, which were all stitched together in photoshop.

In photography it's so difficult to show a progression of something like a trash the dress session in only 1 picture. So, if you want to try and accomplish something like this, you pretty much have to do what I've done here. This is a lengthy process in shooting and editing, but the results are REALLY FUN! Camera settings: Nikon D700, 1/80 sec at f/4.0, 16mm at ISO 200, flash did not fire. Shot at 5:47pm on October 27, 2011 by Jason Lanier.
