Composite photo of studio bridal gown shot with stock location background shot for designer Essence by Bonny Bridal. Model was shot in studio with medium soft box from above with negative fill/black cards on either side to increase the contrast in the gown and the butterfly effect on the face. The soft box is tipped forward (towards camera) so that the edge of the beam is striking the model's face and the center of the beam is hitting the lower part of the gown in order to stretch the fall-off of the beam across the length of the gown.
Model image was cut out and placed on desaturated background image from stock
i will definitely try something like this
Love your photos!
