del Sol underwater trash the dress movie

Recommended Posts

Howdy!

 

Wow! What a nice clear video you guys shot (and it looked like everyone had fun shooting it too). Many thanks for sharing this with us. :)

 

While it probably won't compare with the professional grade quality cameras you guys and gals are using, I did purchase a few months back the Olympus Stylus 1030 SW for $399 which is a recent incarnation of the 8 megapixel Olympus Stylus 770SW that has been around a while. The Olympus Stylus 1030 SW that I purchased claims to be able to go up to 33 feet underwater *WITHOUT* an underwater housing although there is an optional underwater housing one can purchase for this model digital camera should one want to go deeper. This 10 megapixel camera's other claim to fame is that it can be safely dropped from six feet and frozen without it suffering any harm (not to mention getting it dirty and messy). I have yet to test out these features but hope to very soon (maybe even at our TTD session). If you wish, though, to see what kind of shots this camera takes in the hands of a rank amateur (such as myself) please see my regular NON-WEDDING/TTD Flickr photostream at:

My only complaint about this camera is that some of the regular dry pictures that it takes seem a tad bit noisy but again one does not buy this camera to take great dry photos; one purchases this camera to take pictures in places where a regular point and shoot simply can't safely go. :-)

I think that the newer Canon Powershot cameras from 8-12 mega pixels and containing an IS or Image Stabilization option for the built in lens is important.

 

 

Most any of these housings allow for additional fun with imagery and when on vacation, the smaller housings or self contained camera/housing hybrids are an excellent way to play :)

 

Thanks for the nice comments, we want to do another cenote session very soon!

 

 

Our mission statement with the Trash the Dress sessions:

 

The positive feedback within the online bridal world and also the perpetual promotion of the concept / phenomenon of Trash the Dress must live on. Thanks to every bride who openly supports the bridal session that is way way more fun. We literally live life vicariously through our brides and love life doing it :)

 

Cheers & smile on your way to buy your new underwater housing :)

Cool! I bought an underwater housing for my p&s camera MANY years ago....like back when they cost $350 for just the housing (for a p&s!). LOL It's interesting to see how much they've come down in price....such is the life of electronics, eh? But, I'm totally diggin the pro housing -- nice!!

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
