    So I have three bookings in the next week for Trash the Dress sessions and another woman gave me her contacts while doing this one this evening to contact her because she'd "Just love to get her dress dirty". All natural light because I have no other light sources right now. Shot around 7:00pm in Torbay, Newfoundland. Be gentle, it's my first outdoor semi-pro shoot.

    Great stuff. No need to preface about the natural light. That soft light works wonderful with the setting, and the model's pale skin tone.

    Thank you :) Something I'm worried about is number 4 in the upper right corner, are her legs distracting? Should I crop them out?

    Love the contrast between the dress and models skin tone along with the red lipstick which pops out at you! Very nice work.

    Nice work. I particularly like #2.
    Don't crop #4, just clone out the legs. I'm Looking forward to your other sessions.

    Very nice job indeed. As others have mentioned, the contrast is great. Hard to pick a favorite.

    Forget the shots, check out that dress it's awesome. Very different. Says a lot about the personality of the bride, I think I'm in love.

    I kid about the shots. They are stunning. Not too much a fan of #5 because it looks clear that neither party has any intention of kissing. :lol:
    #1 and 2 are by far my favourite, I personally think #4 could benefit from the camera being more level with the model, but I understand the phobia of the wet.

    very nice!

    in #6 (and #4) her tan lines are a bit distracting to my eye (less noticeable in the others). i don't know if that is something she and/or you would like to disguise, or just leave as is...

    Very good photos. The only problem I saw was on #3. Her elbow looks hyper flexed. That's very common on this pose. Just have the model straighten out her elbow. It will feel strange to her, but look better. The black dress worked great, but I'll you had a big dry cleaning bill.

    Have Fun,
    Jeff
