Some more horse photos.
I have been very busy shooting as much as possible for my portfolio class so lack of new photos have not stopped me from updating the blog it is just that between shooting and editing and spending time with friends I never seem to have the time!
Last week I had 2 more opportunities to photograph the horses I photographed once before Apache and Katie. Hopefully I learned something from my first experiences. It is harder to get a unique quality photo of a horse than I had imagined but I have a few here I quite like.
This is Patti and Apache. I was able to both of my horse shoots in the late afternoon/evening which boosted the quality of the resulting photos. The color of the light in the evening cannot be beat!
While I really wish there had been a field of flowers in which to photograph Apache these few little wild flowers still contribute to the photo a great deal.
Then there is Katie. I LOVE this shot. In the orgininal photo the background was off white-the color of the building in the background I changed it to blue which really takes it to a whole other level.
I gave this one the black and white treatment and tried to give it a bit of a magical quality, something white horses just seem to have by nature anyway.
Then there is this amazing shot. I took quite a few of Katie in motion but this one turened out the best. Not only was the light amazing but there is the perfect placement of the red building on the right and the dust floating up in the air near her feet. Then to all that add the look in the horses eye. Love it! I also took some great photos of my friend Jessica during this shoot that will be featured in my next post. I cannot believe it is less than 2 weeks until I finish school! I will be updating/revamping my website and this blog and getting everything ready to offically launch my business. I will also post my 'official'portfolio that is being put together now.
