Horse Blackout Portrait

Post Processing

Post-processing is always overlooked in photography. Even with presets or actions you still have to understand when, where and how to apply them. A good photographer can really enhance an image in post-processing. The photography aspect is much less time consuming than processing image.

These blackout portraits are very popular in the horse world. They are actually pretty easy to do. The hardest part is to get the horse in the correct place and looking decent. Otherwise, nothing fancy was done. This little series was done in 30 seconds. What makes them dramatic is how they are shot and post-processing clean-up. Here are the before and after of this image.

Sunlight

 

We finally got some sunlight yesterday but it is still very soggy after three little snowstorms.  Hopefully, it will start to dry out a little this spring.  Its seems as if it has rained every other day form the last year.  Hope to see you this spring.

Equine Blackout Portrait

Ok so my daughter is obsessed with horses.  I recently took one of my photography students to shoot at TNC Equine Center.  She did a few of these blackout portraits and my daughter wanted me to do some.  The main reason I suggested this barn is because I knew the afternoon light would make the whole process very easy.  Actually, getting the horse in a nice pose is much more difficult than the photographic process.  The only difficult editing which really is not difficult at all is removing the girls hands.  I am not a fan of horse images with bridles or halters so luckily this horse take off.

If you are interested in one of these portraits for your horse give me a call.
