Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken at a friends house in near Tuscumbia, Missouri.
Time
It was a "spur of the moment" shot. We had just gotten done with a half day trail ride near sunset. While we were all talking we let the horses graze in front of us. I noticed the sun was just perfect so I rushed (literally ran) to my car to grab my camera. That's why I love animals, they are beautiful without posing them. :)
Lighting
Like I said it was a spur of the moment shot....It's one of those shots you take and are excited but don't realize the emotion and the feel you've captured until its up on your computer. It took my breath away. Light and horses always mix perfectly!
Equipment
I had yet to get my new gear so it was my Canon Rebel XTi and my 75-200mm lens.
Inspiration
Horses and Light always mix well and I'm a sucker for silhouette shots.... I always bring my camera and I knew I'd be running to my car to get it!
Editing
Usually I do a lot....this one I bumped up the colors and darkened it so I could really make the definition of the colors and the blacks!
In my camera bag
Well since I have upgraded.... I now carry a Canon 60D, Canon Rebel XTi, 70-200mm 2.8, 70-200mm 4f, and a 18-55mm 3.5f, and my trusty monopod!
Feedback
Light works well behind and in front of horses....As I said before I'm a sucker for silhouette shots... Best time is a little bit before sunset...you'll want to make sure you're going to have a great sunset. Find a ridge or somewhere that is not blocked by trees, buildings, and anything distracting in the background. Let the horse be a horse....It's never good when you try to make them pose or do something they don't want - most of the time you'll miss the shot by then. The horse will do the speaking for you!
