I've dubbed this shoot "the horse whisperer" because a) it's fitting to the animals, duh and b) I went back over to the pasture today and could not get the horses to snuggle as much as Kendall did. Clearly they can spot a horse person from a mile away. Eek.
I messed around with all of the shots a ton, mostly with black and white and boosting color and sometimes antiquing the look a little. Critiques would be awesome!
I love the texture of his fur and how clear it is in most of these.
With all of the colors boosted and the light brought into the image more, all of these just blew me away. Kendall didn't even have to worry about posing, she was just having fun with Tex (that's what we found out that the horse's name was, when the owner came out and talked to us... after I fearfully asked her if it was ok that I was taking pictures).
Everything was surrounded in a halo of afternoon golden hour light, and the colors were so vibrant, that they take my breath away.
That one's a little funny with the angle, and I tend to agree with Kendall in that it made him look like a mule, but I like the in-the-way look it has, almost comically.
I still cannot get over the rays of light and natural edge blur in this one.
Enjoy and tell me what you think! :)
PS: Blogger is being unattractive and will not let me upload my new header, even though I've already deleted my previous ones from picasa web. Any tips?
