Cotton Dock Remote

Last weekend I had the privilege of photographing Heather & Josh’s wedding at Boone Hall Plantation for our good friends Bill & Kelli Nixon.  The ceremony was held at the rustic Cotton Dock.  What a cool venue for a wedding!  I arrived early, as usual, and noticed the decorators were draping these long, silky, white sheets over the huge wooden rafters.  Seeing those rafters gave me the idea to mount a remote camera from one of the rafters to get this cool angle.  In the first photo you can see the D300 with 10.5mm Fisheye super-clamped to the rafter looking strait down.  The second shot is an image from the remote camera, which I fired with a set of PocketWizards.  Fun Stuff!!!

    a) that is an amazing shot and you ROCK!!
    b) beware climbing around in those rafters at the Cotton Dock....I was shooting there a few months ago and during the reception a big ol' SNAKE fell out of those rafters....onto a wedding guest. TRUE STORY!
