When it comes to doing the wedding dress hung up shot you need to arrange things so it extenuates the dress yet with a good focal point too, and what better way than with a wonderful willing bride to show her gorgeous leg. Here Elizabeth was stood to the left in her PJ shorts and top perched precariously on another chair while Wayne assisted me by holding the ceiling lampshade out of shot. It took us several attempts but I think we nailed it in the end. Very sexy shot with the dress and garter text in detail. I would say that if you have a lamp in shot, turn it on, it adds to the image and give purpose rather than just being a prop.
Below is another image of the fantastic staircase at The Met Hotel, Leeds. I could probably spend a day shooting this place, brilliant deco architecture brought tastefully into the modern.
