It's always fun to put together a series of images from a session and think about how the image was put together.
That is the beauty of it.
I love - the unexpected.
It's the interaction with my subjects, the people assisting, or even the "live" props that make up the experience of a shoot.
Not my first choice, but reliable.
Unfortunately, Swimmer was happy to graze peacefully, but not anywhere near the subject or camera.
Which leads us to our next prop -
"a halter and lead rope"!
My idea was to show the whole apple, but when it was brought out for the picture, someone had sliced it into several bit size pieces for the horse!
The model did a great job trying to hold the pieces together to make it look whole again (and struggling to keep it from the horse's mouth before I got the shot)

Photography means many things to different people. It can be a way to record a news event, a family gathering, exotic vacation, growing children or it can be a means of artistic expression.
Exposure, aperture settings, speed, depth of field, and focus distance are all part of the science. Anyone can learn how to work the camera and get a perfect exposure. But not everyone can “create” an image.
Few can see outside the box, or explore the world around them through a different perspective.
Robyn, is new to seeing life through the viewfinder of a camera.
But she gets it.
It was her first time using a digital SLR (single lens reflex) camera and some cumbersome lenses.
But she appeared at ease with the equipment, composing various shots that spoke to her.
After picking out a few favorites, and running them through a photo editing program to complete the final product.
I would like to present “An Afternoon at the Barn” by Robyn.
Thanks Robyn for being my guest, I look forward to more photo shoots together!
