This is a lighting technique that was shown to me by 21.gif LVicari. I have wanted to try this for some time and now was the right opportunity. The sky was right, the models and location were available.

I had initially intended on using the stallion in the photo but he wasn't on his best behaviour that day so we went with one of the fillies, unfortunately she shied everytime the flashes fired so I only got three photos...this was the last.

Due to Leo not putting up many lighting tutorials (please let me know if I am not aware of any in the tutorials), I have included a link to one of his explanations.

Leo's lighting

Here is a layout more like what he had explained to me for outdoor portraits.

Outdoor setup

Here is another!

You can find plenty of layouts in his portfolio. The layout he explained to me was in a private thread...so it was on the net but not public.

I don't know what to say, seriously. Absolutely astonishing! From corner to corner, top to bottom, and side to side the lighting has made every element in your photograph pop with WOW Factor.

Great Work....and another fav!

Judi!!!!!!!! Fantabulous! Congrats on a well-deserved ribbon. I'm seriously amazed you got ANY shots with the horse, using strobes! I did a pet portrait with a horse, and I couldn't even use a reflector. Made the horse VERY nervous. Amazing you pulled this off, to such spectacular results.

This is seriously COOL... all the elements I love, mood, horse, victorian dress, Clouds! Gotta go google Moody outdoor lighting!!

There ya go, Miss Judi. I recognize your beautiful daughter. WOW - love the horse and that sky - Holy Smokes. You have a winner here, my dear. With her wearing the red and white satin type dress, it catches the light perfectly. With no saddle, this would be straight out of a fairy tale or romance novel cover. FAB
