THE SHOOT

The process begins with the photography of your scheduled Fine Art session. I'll have you position your horse at the entrance of the barn aisle or arena out of direct sunlight, with the door on the opposite end of the aisle closed, and indoor lights turned off to create a dark, minimal background behind your horse.

I'll be standing just outside of the entrance to photograph your horse. Throughout the session, I'll guide you through various adjustments to your horse's position, transitioning seamlessly between flattering poses. Using techniques I've collected over the years, we'll elicit the best curious expressions from your horse by using tricks such as crinkling wrappers, introducing a stick horse to sniff, holding up a mirror, and more, culminating in a collection of fabulous images.

POST-PROCESSING

After the photography session, the magic continues in post-production, where each image undergoes meticulous editing. Backgrounds transform into minimalistic canvases - elegant black, pristine white, or a unique muslin texture, accentuating your horse's presence in each image. 

With an expert touch, I'll do any necessary cleanup work to remove flies, snot, scrapes, etc., and enhance the features, colors, and details of your horse, ensuring each Fine Art portrait is a masterpiece to immortalize your horse in gorgeous Fine Art style.

THE DELIVERY

Upon tedious selection, editing, and completion of your final images, they will be uploaded to a private online gallery, granting you direct access for viewing and downloading to your computer.

 

The total quantity and style of the final images depends on the specifics of the session you've booked with me. If you choose to share your final portraits on social media, a credit to Katie Damon Photography is sincerely appreciated, it is not obligatory.
