A girl and her horse
« on: August 06, 2012, 12:49:31 AM »
So shooting a girl on a horse is crazy...I've been shooting for a while and didn't realize just how awesomely beautiful yet difficult horses could be.

Here's Victoria and her horse Ditto.

Oh note, I didn't realize horses absorbed so much light :)

Lovely! Great shots!

Only thing I really think could be better is the first shot, if the horses were more profile and you could make it wider, more panoramic. Or at least further back so you got the horses more, or if the horse on the right edge of the frame was kind of shoulders/neck coming into the frame. Love the location though, awesome.

Wondering how many will try pulling dark tones on the second pic *drool*

Funniest comment I've seen in a while! Haha.

Finally a realistic use case for needing to push 6+ stops in the shadows with a D800.

The second one is gorgeous.

Tried it and the result was... puzzling. This was obviously not shot with a Nikon.  :P

Silly people, she has black rider shorts on :)

Anyways for those with a short memory, Victoria was one of the bikini models I put up a few weeks ago.

Good shots and lighting overall.  Love the first 2 shots.  The first one would be improved with a better composition, 2 horses on both side is a bit of distraction.  I would focus on the horse that the girl holds and get rid of the other horse.  Beautiful model!

I would add some shots with the girl using the horses are background or prop.
