The Welshot ‘Trash the Dress’ event on Saturday was somewhat different from most Welshot events.  Firstly, it was an event where some new techniques were being tried out including paint, smoke and paint powder – and it wasn’t certain how different things would work.  Secondly, because we were using paint, smoke and paint powder it was necessary for everyone to take photographs at the same time – which meant that the models couldn’t concentrate on a single person doing the shooting.  Thirdly, several Welshot team leaders were taking part and shooting alongside others for the event rather than checking that everyone was using sensible settings and getting the shots that they wanted.
