MEET VANESSA

This day was particularly fun because it included three of my most favourite things; taking photographs, anything to do with horses and catching up with a friend I hadn’t seen in a while. (This one happened to have been in Italy for a few weeks and I’ll pretend I wasn’t jealous!)  Horse portraits are a favourite of mine. The super adorable horse in the photos below is my paint horse Arrow.  Arrow was a total gem that day and so I was easily able to ride him bareback, which is my favourite! I rode around in the pasture while Ana took some photos as well.  This day was particularly smoldering hot and so when the sun started to go down, that was a huge relief.  We spent the afternoon riding, with Ana shooting some film for a personal project you might see in the future 😉

As the sun went down we left the horses and trees and went out looking for a clear horizon to take full advantage of the sunset.  Needless to say, we found the brightest, most golden sunset I’ve seen in quite a while.  Then just as the sun was disappearing past the fields, we got some lovely, grainy last light shots.

Editing to Keep Your Photos Consistent There is nothing more eye catching about a photographer than the first thing you’ll ever see; their photos! Most importantly, their style of editing.
