Brides spend a lot of time and effort, not to mention a large amount of money, choosing their wedding gown. This album spread featuring three photos taken during a Toronto Botanical Garden wedding the main subject is the wedding dress.
The image on the left showcases the wedding dress photographed from a low angle. The uniqueness of this image is the fact that you can also see the sun coming through the glass dome of the building. To obtain the starburst in this image, I photographed it at F16.
The images on the right feature the same wedding dress from two different angles. First, the dress is shown hanging against a glass window so that I can capture its reflection as well. The last image is a variation of the second shot.
All three images on this album spread include diagonals, which give dynamism to these wedding pictures. I took the three pictures using a wide-angle lens to also capture the beauty of the building and to use the sky as a backdrop. In all three of them, I used a photography technique called the Dutch tilt. In essence, this technique is obtained by tilting the camera by 5° to 10° around its lens axis.
In terms of post processing I simply sharpened the images, enhanced the colours and added the slight vignette.
