Behind The Lens

Location
A family farm near Decatur, NE
Time
Although I rather not shoot portraits in full sun mid-day, their schedule did not allow for an evening shoot. We made the best of the sunny situation at 2:00 in the afternoon.
Lighting
I set my camera to allow for proper lighting of the horse and the young man. This caused the highlights in the sky to be completely blown out.
Equipment
At the time of this photo, I was using the Canon 5D Mark 2 set to a high shutter-speed to capture movement, with no tri-pod or flash.
Inspiration
One of my favorite things about senior portraits is getting to capture the activities that the student is interested in. Yes, we took a "posed" photo by his horse, but I always love to get an action shot. These end up being the ones that their parents have printed large and framed on the wall. I really wanted to add drama, so we took the photo of the horse running on the gravel road to kick up some dust as they flew by me.
Editing
Because the sky was blown out in my original image, I later adjusted the highlights using the local adjustment brush in Adobe Lightroom. This was before I had learned about sky overlays.
In my camera bag
I have a Canon 5D Mark 3 along with a 24-70 mm wide angle 2.8 lens for landscapes and a 50 mm 1.4 for portraits. I also take along my 70-200 mm 2.8 when needed.
Feedback
If I had it all to do over again, I would have used a tripod and wider aperture to make it appear more sharp and added a storm sky overlay for drama.
