Cowboys - Riding, Roping and More

Outdoor Workshop

We will be shooting cowboy and cowgirl models on horseback, in silhouette, roping and leading horses.  Horses will be in action, running, walking and trotting.  Sunrises or sunsets will be utilized for each shoot as they are available. Cowboys will be interacting with each other as well as their horses.  We will cover composition, exposure, proper lighting, correct shutter speed and techniques for action photos and how to prepare and expose for a silhouette.

Activity Level
Low.  Light hiking of up to 1/4 mile could be required for the best angles.

Things to know
This workshop will be held at the Black Hills Equestrian Center.  

What to bring
Lenses from wide angle to extreme telephoto could be used to your advantage. Lenses from 28mm to 300mm are probably the most used and most common for this type of shooting.  A tripod is always a good thing but handholding is sometimes necessary depending on the subject.  Fill flash could be used as well but would not be required.
