I was recently going through some photos taken last fall and came across this one -- shot in September at the Stanaland barn as sort of a warm up to some portraits I did of Kacey and Lauren and their horses. This is Kacey in the barn ... lit with at SB900 in a Lastolite EZYbox from high camera left. 85mm, 1/80 sec at f/3.5. Sepia conversion done with Nik Silver Efex. I learned one thing about horses that day. Evidently it is very desirable to photograph a horse with their ears turned forward (like above). Seems like when the ears turn backward it has a negative connotation in the horse world. Who knew.
