Photoshoot With My Trainer's Grand Prix Horse!

So for Christmas my barn decided to do a big blown up portrait for our trainer of her grand prix mount, Devin. :) She has had him forever and still doesn't have a picture of the big guy to put up in her house and we thought giving her a portrait of him would be a great present!

Nobody in our barn really has any photography skill (haha sorry guys!) so I volunteered to take and edit the pictures. :) I'd like to think I'm somewhat skilled at taking photos and editing them haha. Devin was such a good little boy for the photoshoot and here are the end results!

This is the one we decided to use for the portrait:

And here are the other ones I took :)

The first and fourth are definitely my favorites. Thanks for sharing. What a thoughtful gift!

^^ thanks guys!

The edits turned out great, I personally liked the 3rd and 4th one the best but the group liked the 1st haha. I'm hoping to do another photoshoot with Robbie when he's better. :)

It's amazing how differently the final product looks from the original - I'll dig up the un-edited pics and I'm sure you'll be shocked at the difference!

Those are great! I like the 4th the most, he looks very regal. New Robbie pics when he is better are a must.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

I want to know also. I tried it out in a run in shed and it came out good but it didn't look dark like that!
