Please Touch Museum Carousel

The Carousel at the Please Touch Museum is an iconic attribute that many brides and grooms love to include on their wedding day.

In this image, I wanted the movement of the carousel to be a prominent element. I slowed the shutter to capture the motion of the carousel and create the blurring effect.

The process was simple: I had my assistant to my left with a Nikon SB-910 triggered by a Phottix Odin II radio transmitter. I balanced the ambient light and the flash, and set my shutter speed to a low number to allow for the motion blur.

Here is a similar photo I took at a different wedding at the Please Touch Museum:
