Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo in San Luis Obispo, California.
Time
I took this photo in the mid-morning.
Lighting
I took this using only natural light.
Equipment
Believe it or not, I took this with an iPad 3 and shot it handheld.
Inspiration
I was driving from Los Osos, California through San Luis Obispo. We saw a family feeding grass to a few wild horses at the side of the road as we drove by. We turned around and joined them. As we approached, a few of the horses walked over to say hello. I didn’t have my camera with me but didn’t want to miss the moment. My friend took the time to speak to the horses and several of them came over to her. There were about 30 of them. It was a magical moment.
Editing
I’m a visual effects artist and saw this as a good opportunity to do something special with these photos. I did some editing in Adobe After Effects, as well as with Adobe Photoshop using a combination of High Dynamic Range and special visual effects techniques used in motion pictures, incorporating multiple layers, masks, and transfer modes. I took advantage of the texture and shadows in the grass to help add depth. The clouds already looked somewhat a part of an oil painting and helped tie everything together.
In my camera bag
I carry with me a Nikon D-80 camera body. The lens I use the most is a Nikkor 24mm – 85mm lens. I also take with me my iPad 3. I also use an older Manfrotto tripod. I believe as long as we know our tools, and the fundamentals of light and photography, we can capture dynamic imagery.
Feedback
I always suggest knowing your equipment. You don’t need the latest and greatest to take good photos. Learn the differences in light densities, color temperatures, and lens speeds. Camera bodies will always change, but good lenses one will hold onto for many years. Always make sure you have enough light for your desired affect. Also consider what the post process will involve when you are planning the shoot. And plan beforehand to help ensure you get the shots you want, have access to the location, and have all of the gear you will need with you.
