    Rebecca says
    “Craig asked Lou, our model, to lean against the tree and this created the perfect setting for this shot. I tried various compositions, however this midpoint focal length worked best. I’ve also kept the aperture at f/11 so the background wasn’t completely blurred out. When Blackey, the horse, closed his eye I fired the shutter and was really pleased with the result!”

    Craig says
    “To capture such a great shot requires a few things,” Craig says. “The image works well in a portrait orientation and, by getting Lou to lean against the tree, it creates a natural edge to the frame. The connection between horse and rider is beautifully captured. Finally, both Lou and Blackey are crisp and sharp.”
