I like this shot for the detail and the clarity. It is a better shot, though the glare from the flash robs, at least for me some of the luster that is there in thehorse's color and shape. I find that lightbox's on the flash and pointed up or back can help. Or one trick I learned for the studio is to tape wax paper to the front of the umbrella and let it hang down, it makes a great cheap diffuser, though it doesn't always last a long time. Grin

Mandy are you talking about the horse or the Photographer? GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinTongue

Too much glare and highlights. And to emulate night, you need an element of blue in the shot, and a little less exposure. The idea is good.


Ive uploaded a mod with highlights toned down a lot; Ive used a day to night filter at a low opacity, - intruduces a slight blue cast and decreases exposure; and Ive cropped space from the left and added to the right for better positioning of the horses head. Very difficult to avoid the highlights, so perhaps a VERY diffused light would work better, and at a lower power.


Hope the mod gives you some ideas.

Im sure both were exhausted!


regards



Willie

Willie, What do you think about the contrast of black and brown in the original shot. I'm not sure that might blue would give as much depth to the shot? Let me know.

KDC and Willie, The modification losses the content and feel. What do you think about the contrast of black and brown in the original shot. I'm not sure that might blue would give as much depth to the shot? Let me know.
