Photographing horses, I’ve come to find from shooting the small herd on my father in law’s farm in the northern Catskills is that if they think I’m bearing gifts (grain), they are all smiles, till they figure out I’m there for something else. In that space, sometimes you can get lucky, as happened with Scoobie, a retired Central Park carriage horse. Shooting from inside the barn, the door and wooden fencing provided a natural framing, the light fell just right. Fortunately, I got the shot, and even more upon processing the image. The geometric fade of the structure added an allure I didn’t anticipate, but gratefully welcomed, as it provides perspective to the portrait. An ideal addition to any room, home or office.
Available titled and framed, in two sizes – 11″ x 14″ and 16″ x 20″
