I was lucky enough to be invited to join the recent Traveling Dress project here in the Treasure Valley. The concept was pretty simple and yet something I hadn't heard of before. One dress, 18 Photographers. For 4 months the dress traveled from photog to photog and was captured is many different ways.
I took the opportunity to combine 2 things I had been wanting to photograph....balloons and lace crowns. I made the crown myself and ended up with 3 large balloons (after I discovered that 6 large balloons would cost over $100 to fill with helium AND that only 3-4 of them would fit in my car.)
I shot these images at the Bruneau Dunes State Park outside Mountain Home just after sunset. The light was fantastic, the model was beautiful, but oh boy were the bugs hungry!!! By the way, traveling over an hour with 36" balloons in your car makes your car smell like a condom factory for days. Ick, Latex!!
