One of the biggest things that strikes me with Trash the Wedding dress photos, is that they are high fashion and contrast. You know the soft and nice with the dirty and hard back ground..
It goes for those things that always gets peoples interest from photography and that has to be “not the way we see it”. IF you look at something such as a flower, then look at the same photo taken in macro mode ( thats a really close up shot ) then you become more interested, as you know what your looking at. You just havent ever seen it like that before. I think this applies to trash the dress and rock the frock. You simply dont see it unless someones having a real bad wedding day..
I dont think that people are going to try out trashing their wedding dresses with their point and shoot camera as trashing a few hundred pounds of wedding dress for a maybe get some photos, isnt going to be the stomping ground of the weekend warrior wedding photographer.
I think that trash the wedding dress makes for a great round of photography portraits. Photographs that are different from the bleached out, over contrasted and over saturated venture portraits that people are having. Photographs that inject real life, movement and artistry back into the photography and the pictures.
This is what matters in any photo, a story, and something that makes you think, its not always about wow, you look great.
