Today was the day of the big photoshoot. Five horses all lined up looking their prettiest for the camera. The photo session started out like most, pile everything into each arm, including the very expensive photo lamps and drag everything to the cellar studio to photograph either in the photo cube or on the desk. In the process the lamp of course, slipped out of my hand, crashed to the ground and the bulb shattered. In the span of less than six months I've broken two so far.
So the photoshoot took place at my drafting table with my studio lamp for lighting. Before I had the photo cube this was the only way for me to take photos. I honestly seemed to enjoy it better like this instead of the photo cube. In a way it was nice to revisit this method and a couple of hours seemed to fly. Without a doubt my favorite backdrops and set ups are still those snow scenes. For whatever reason the horses seem to just sparkle in these scenes.
photoshoots. Its in most of the shots. Can you see it?
You can see how tiny she is here next to my hand.
At one point I decided to try to tack up the visiting Little Lonestar and then remembered why my beautiful collection of tack remains in my tack box. I can't deal with buckling such tiny buckles. I never could get them right. I do have some pretty saddles in my collection and I let the new horses quickly model them for me. I think that English saddle would have really looked great on the Lonestar properly tacked and shot in the one scene.
In the end, a productive day. I hope all owners will be pleased. BTW...my commission books ARE OPEN so please feel free to email me with your project ideas both big and small: email@example.com
