Still learning to play nice nice with my camera..





This is a commission too. So I'm not so worried about fantabulous sales photos. All the same I'd really like to do better than this... colors were washed out or over the top yellow. This is a little too pale but closer to real life than the neon yellow I was getting under other settings and light. The background is definitely not helping either. It is fun to see a solid color through and through on Hazel though. :) I was pretty pleased how the subtle dapples turned out. I'd love to do plain solid simple colors more often to be honest!

I should see later today if I get a chance, what happens to the color of hte body under the same settings and lighting variables if you change out the background. I've got a white vinal one, a blue splashy water-like one, and a brown paper package roll I sometimes use.. hmmm...

you know, your background could be too dark. Try a lighter blue or even an off white background of some kind. The lighter color background will give the light something ot "bounce" off of and then reflect back onto the horse and into the camera.. just my .02

I think you are completely right here. It's pretty interesting to me how different the background comes out with pretty similiar lights sometimes - but a different subject. It's an odd thing.. photography. Best left to experts imo but I don't really have much choice! lol! ;) I will try that Heather, before she ships. :)
