For this image, we first envisioned the end-result, which is the key in making a picture.
Then we moved the saddle into position, arranged the cowboy boots, carefully posed the horse and rider in the pond (so we had a nice clean background) and then asked the rider to fix her hair and look toward the sun.
The next time you pick up your camera, think about making a picture rather than simply taking a picture.
I am doing another workshop (extended) here in January 2010. Some of the same cool locations, some new ones, sunset cruise, HDR, more Photoshop stuff and lectures. Check the Events page of my site in about a month.
Saddle up for the fun, pardner!
