Awesome work. Congrats.

Behind The Lens

Location
This photograph was taken at Golden Pony Equestrian in Summerland, British Columbia in January. Golden Pony Equestrian is a wonderful horse boarding and training business that teaches people of any age horseback riding.
Time
This photograph was taken around noon in January. It was a very cold day with beautiful low hanging clouds. Both models I had were bundled until they were put on the horses then had their shoes and socks removed. It was a chilly day laying in the snow, photographing both beautiful creatures - one of my favorite stylized shoots to date. It was such a commitment for the horses, the handlers and the models to put up with the frigid temperatures but I am so grateful for the amazing team I had that day, it wouldn't have been possible without them.
Lighting
The best kind of lighting - overcast and natural. No flash, no reflectors. Clouds and snow only.
Equipment
Pentax K5iis with an 18-135mm lens - last session I did before I upgraded to full frame.
Inspiration
Lady Gaga inspired me honestly. I had watched her documentary on Netflix and saw this gorgeous clip of her sitting on a horse with gorgeous golden lighting. Since that moment, I knew I wanted to photograph
Editing
For this image I used a few Greater than Gatsby actions. Mostly lighting adjustments, contrast and richer colouring.
In my camera bag
I carry my Pentax K1 and K5iis - 35mm, 24-75mm, 18-135mm, Yungnuo Flash, MagMod Diffusers
Feedback
Be patient, dress warm and create an image you've been dreaming about. Show your vision to the world, create something that excites you.
