Tossing the Bride?


One of the most wild and completely unexpected shots I got at a wedding this year. This was the bride dancing with her dance instructor who was also entertaining at the reception. He said to me try to get this shot as he grabbed the bride and immediately proceeded to do this move. I wish I had a better angle, but I am happy I was able to get this shot.



580EXII on a tripod and with a DIY foamy diffuser, to camera left held by my assistant. There was another flash in the back to the right, however the batteries happened to be close to dying and I was shooting too fast for them to recycle the flash fast enough and therefore it failed to fire.
