My horse picture today is a digital composite that I did a few years back. The Sunset was shot in South Africa and the silhouette is a cutout of our older Stallion Dosie which I made into a silhouette from one of his photographs where he was so muddy and I liked his form in the canter so this was how I could get away with using it. I must say that I need to redo it but the sunset was a scan from a slide that is still in England. Still in the days where the slide scanners werent that good. I did print an 11"x14" print from it though so the quality is not too bad.
I would prrefer if I had tilted it up the other way and had him running into the shot rather than out of it.
I have been fascinated by Anna P and a few other' plexiglass/perspex photos that create such great reflections. I had a piece of half inch thick perspex laying around here so I cleaned it up a bit and put a black cloth under it but I am just not getting good results, the reflection is nearly invisible. I think the piece is too thick so I will try to get a thinner piece and start again. So this is the result of my experiments, a fake rose and a slinkie which was also an idea I had from Anna P I think again!!!! I wanted a reflection shot but it didnt work so I cropped it like this.
I was hoping to find something that I can work with when I cant get outside where I can try to b creative.
Those are my efforts for the day, here's hoping I can put the horses out tomorrow and that they can enjoy the fresh air and not just hang around at the gate waiting to get back in. It is easier to clean the stables when they arent in them.
Hope everyone is safe and warm, See y'all tomorrow.
