Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo on an acreage just outside of Regina, Saskatchewan.
Time
This picture was taken in September, at roughly 7:00 as the sun was setting. The time of year was essential to get the nice orange glow from the sun.
Lighting
This is actually a really easy shot if you have the right conditions. The sun was setting, I placed the horse and the girl right in front of the sun, blacking out their detail.
Equipment
I used a Nikon D7100 body, with an 18-200mm lens.
Inspiration
This picture was part of a wedding shoot that I did for a couple of my friends. The bride is an avid horse trainer and she wanted some pictures with her horse. The groom, is somewhat scared of horses so he opted to stay out of most of the shots. This picture wasn't planned at all, the mosquitoes were eating us and the horse alive. She was trying to calm him down as the bugs were quite terrible.
Editing
I use Lightroom to process, I believe I cropped this picture, and that was pretty much it. I try to do as little post processing as possible.
In my camera bag
I have made recent changes to my camera equipment recently. I use a Nikon D7100 body, and a recently purchased Sigma 18-250mm lens. It is my new go to lens, but I also carry a 50mm and 35mm prime Nikon lens for portraits. I also have a Metz flash, that I use occasionally.
Feedback
I was lucky and the conditions were perfect for this shot, but it is useful to know what time of year it is, when the sun goes down, and roughly how much time you have to shoot with the sun. Position your subject in front of the sun to give a nice silhouette around your subject. I like to move around and get different angles of the same shot as the sun can peak through different parts of the body at different angles. Also, bring mosquito spray if you're shooting in Saskatchewan, we had to cut the shoot short as we couldn't take the bugs any longer.
