    Hey there.. I had an interesting request. I am very new and I was asked to shoot a Trash the Dress after the wedding shoot. Has anyone ever heard of this? If so does anyone have any pictures? ideas?

    I've heard of it...but have never shot it or even seen it done. I would love to though...I think it's a fantastic idea. Much better than keeping the dress is the closet for the next 40 years.

    Check this site out http://trashthedress.com/

    A Google search turned up plenty of things to look at.

    Yikes. If you don't want to keep it, donate it.

    Garden of the Gods! What a great place to take pictures, especially wedding pictures. I used to live down the street form GotG and could see it out of my front window. That was one place I could not get enough of. Can't wait to see the pictures.

    Anytime AFTER July 15th I can trash her dress. I'm VERY excited..

    She wants a rain shot. How would I go about protecting the equipment. I just purchased a Nikon D200. Is there anything I can cover it with? I hope this isn't a dumb question I have never shot in the rain.

    1. Umbrella
    2. Get under shelter if you can, and shoot into the rain (but you are not in it)
    3. Put your camera in a plastic bag with only a small hole for the lens to poke out.

    Those are the only tips I know of, obvious though they may be!

    that camera is supposed to be weather sealed but when I have a rainy day I stick an umbrella in my jacket pocket n nip it in my armpit while shooting, works a treat.
