, Shot-by-Shot Explanation
When my friends Kelly and Tracey told me they wanted to do trash the dress photos after their wedding I was super excited. Kelly is a microbiologist PhD candidate at the University of Saskatchewan so we decided to do something that was fun in his lab. This photo isn't photoshopped yet. Just straight out of camera.
Kelly's brother mixing up food colouring in water.
Tracey with the coloured beakers. We used dry ice to make them seem to be boiling.
Here you can see my light setup. A large Octobox to the top left, a softbox to the back right, a ringflash on the camera and there is another flash behind the shelf on the left.
I used an Eye-Fi card tethered to my iPad with the ShutterSnitch App so I could see my images on a bigger screen. This comes in very handy when setting up photos like this as it involves moving a lot of little elements in the frame here and there.
Well Tracey's dress is ruined.... mission accomplished!
After the lab we went down to the South Saskatchewan River and did some cool photos. For light I just had an Alienbees Einstein with a 48-inch Octobox. I used the new Lithium Vegabond battery pack for power.
I used Pocketwizard Flex5's with the AC3 Zone controller so that I could dial the power of the Alienbees Einstein up and down. This is a 1.5 second exposure, F2.8. ISO2500 on a Canon 1D Mark-IV.
It was 32-degrees Celsius that day so the water was still pretty warm.
6-seconds, F2.8, ISO640 to get the stars. Alienbees Einstein turned all the way down to 2.5 w/s.
I think this photo like Tracey is on the moon!

I had the wonderful opportunity to capture Erin and Brad’s wedding at Blue Meadows beside Black Hawk Golf Club in Edmonton. The weather, photos and bride and groom were all perfect that day and the Police helicopter even dropped by for some quick photos which was super cool! Enjoy! Also check out their Engagement Photos.
