Red on Black
Sometimes blogging is a chore.
Last week I had 0 motivation to get content up. While I usually have several posts in a queue in case there’s nothing current to say, my well ran dry last week and I had no desire to build it back up. This week I actually do have some post ideas, but spending some r&r time with the husband is more important.
So you get my handsome Simon.
The post processing on these is pretty quick & dirty with my iPad app vs Photoshop, but they’re still some of the best black background shots that I’ve taken of him.
Last summer I wrote a tutorial on how to take basic equine black background shots. If you like these, they’re really not that hard to do.
Simon makes a pretty good model for headshots, but every now and then he gets the need to make faces.
By the end of our photoshoot yesterday, he let me know that a flash strap is not his favorite.
Still, I love the new bridle (review post soon!) and more importantly I love these pictures of my favorite nerd horse.
Though I do have to say, he looks a lot less nerdy here than normal.

Gorgeous bridle! Gorgeous boy!
Stunning, absolutely stunning photos (and thanks for the link to the tutorial)! That is NOT a nerd horse, sorry. He’s beautiful!

He looks like he should be the model for that bridle. How perfect are those pics!!!
Looking gonlod per usual. Nice looking bridle…but then again hot models make anything look good 😉 (no, seriously both gorgeous)
STUNNING. The horse, the bridle, the photos. All stunning. I will absolutely be checking out your tutorial!

He looks fantastic in it!! What a stud 🙂
You must frame at least one of those!

Those photos are amazing. What a gorgeous horse (and bridle).
Oh my gosh, those pictures are stunning! They could use those as stock photos to sell that bridle. Great work!
