Just like the old days

11 Sep

When I was younger, I spent hours on end out at the barn.  I was able to relive this a few weeks ago when shooting some photos for fun.  Chelsea and I wanted to shoot some pretty horse fashion photos with our great photography friend, Henry.  I’ve seen so many beautiful ones out there and I had in mind soft images at sun down but then we ended up with some crazy photos during twilight as well.  It’s best to have the crazy ideas and then try to just put them to life.  Sometimes you get what you want.  Sometimes you get more.

My friend from the barn, Lynn, was so kind to let us use her beautiful horse Amante for the shoot.  He was such a trooper and for a few extra cookies behaved extra well for us.

I took a broken bracelet and made a hand piece out of it!

Keeping the talent happy 🙂

I don’t know what it is about horses but they are just amazing.

Then the sun went behind the hills.  Here’s Chels with Amante.  She was really good with him considering she has no horse handling experience.  She’s very calm and he really liked her.  I have a few exceptional shots of her and him that we will post on I.F.L.

I love this one.

It was a full moon.  I can’t believe how light these photos came out because it was pretty dark out by this point.

This was so fun to play around with lighting and exposures out at the barn.  It’s definitely more challenging working with an animal but we were lucky to have a very well behaved horse with us.  I also love that no matter how crazy my ideas are, Chelsea and Henry are always game to help make them happen.

 Chelsea and I have recently decided to put all of our shenanigans out there in a new blog, IFL Blog.  It’s more stories and musings than just simply photos.  However, we do keep up with the photos as well.  I can’t tell you how hard I laugh sometimes at the things that end up popping up on that blog and the things to come.  It’s been keeping us busy and I’m excited to keep it going!
