    This was a fun challenge: to photograph an artistic black-and-white "studio" style portrait of a horse...without a studio.

    To do this, I first tried to find a place on the stable grounds that was as shaded as possible (there was fairly bright sun during this portion of the photoshoot). I then choose a combination of aperture/shutter speed that pretty much overpowered whatever ambient li
    ght was left, giving me essentially a dark frame before I re-introduced light.

    Finally, I used three Canon speedlites on the horse, Risk, to then light him up.

    Finally, in Lightroom I had to burn out a couple of spots in the photo that weren't completely black and then convert it to black and white.

    Model: Risk
