Hey kiddies. I shot this for fun the other day. My children have dubbed it ‘The Corpse Bride’.
I rented the corpse from BJ Winslow and dressed it up in a wedding dress that I found at a thrift-store. I aged the dress and veil with Lipton tea. I rented the coffin from my friend Jerry at Have Guns Will Rent. I borrowed the ring from my sister. I photographed my Corpse Bride in the garage, with black fabric as a backdrop, a single soft-box as the light source, and white foam-core to bounce light into my shadow areas. Here you can see me getting things set up:
It was fun to shoot something so uncomplicated.
