Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in Waunakee, WI where K Jay Photos Photography is located. Shot with natural light and a fill flash.
Time
I love the emotion of this photo. No matter what time of day it would have been shot it still would be an amazing portrait. This was shot at dusk though.
Lighting
Just natural light with a fill flash. I didn't use studio lights which I sometimes do. Because the horse was not familiar with that type of lighting scenario we chose to just use a fill flash.
Equipment
I shoot with a Sony A99 and Carl Zeiss 1.4 85mm lens.
Inspiration
This portrait was taken to tell a story. A love affair between a horse and it's owner. The goal was to capture the emotion and the end result was a portrait for her wall to cherish forever.
Editing
Post processing was done in lightroom. I minimized the color in this shot to black and white where I wanted it to be black and white using photoshop.
In my camera bag
I typically use the lens above and the Carl Zeiss 1.8 135mm lens as well. In addition, a Paul C Buff einstein and soft box.
Feedback
Focus on the subject(s) you are photographing. Lighting and post processing are helpful to make a great image even more amazing. But focus on capturing great images as your first priority. To see more of my work visit www.kjayportraits.com.
