Stunning

Behind The Lens

Location
Canmore, Alberta
Time
This was taken around 11. you can see where the shadows are being cast. I don't typically like to shoot around noon because of the harsh overhead shadows. But sometimes, you have to work with the available light.
Lighting
I overcame the issue of the harsh overhead light, by shooting from low and dodging the shadowed side of Emily in post.
Equipment
Nikon D610 with a 24-70/2.8
Inspiration
I really love to photograph horses, particularly without riders. Emily is part of a family of horses I know who live nearby. I arranged with their guardian to go out several times with them in hopes that I could capture the beauty of the animals coupled with the beauty of the surroundings. I have had several sessions with the pinto family. This one, is one of my favourites.
Editing
I used standard sharpening, cropping and a curves layer. I had to brighten up Emily's shadowed side quite a bit. I also added quite a bit of gold to the photo with Color Efex. The original had very green grass and a very blue sky. I wanted a more late Summer feel.
In my camera bag
My Nikon D610, a 24-70mm/2.8 and a 70-200mm/2.8 lens. In addition, I often have my SB900 flash unit as well.
Feedback
For working with animals or children, a low vantage point gives you a great perspective and often helps your subject open up to you.
