Black Backgrounds are a popular way to capture the beauty of your horse and create stunning artwork for your home. But HOW exactly are these gorgeous images created? Does it require a studio, complicated lighting, and a stressful set up for your horse? Absolutely not!
The ideal set up is a covered area like a barn aisle, arena, or hay loft area. Preferably, we are able to close off one end of the barn aisle to create a dark background and place your horse on the opposite end where the light is softly coming in. But, that isn't always possible, especially here in Southern California where we don't have to rely on enclosed barns like you may find in colder parts of the country. So we work with what we've got and are still able to create MAGIC thanks to the powers of photoshop skills!
