Perspective Wedding

Yes this is a wedding photo :D For this couple I got pretty much free hands to come up with original concept for their wedding photo. I knew that the couple are into movies, so I wanted to create definitely something that has movie feel.

I got some inspiration from the movie Inception where the perspective of the world changes in the dreamworlds.

The image was created from 4-6 different exposures, both people was shot separately as they were lying on the is backs. In the background there is one long 30 sec exposure to get all the ambient light deep feeling in the image, and then additional flash shots to make certain areas pop.

The hardest part was to make the poses look natural since they were lying on their backs trying to get the head up, we needed bit of help with that and good abdominal muscles :D
