Alenka Slavinec is an emerging photographer and she have an exhibition Slovenia in us that’s still open at Križanke, Ljubljana. She photographed Lipizzaner horses so I decided to photograph her at Hipodrom Stožice / Ljubljana, Slovenia. I was looking for a good point of view, but this hippodrome is not a s picturesque as the one in Lipica, as you can see from the image bellow. I have a simple and efficient rule. If I can’t use the background then I don’t use it. I know it’s not much of philosophy, but **** ***, it works for me! I don’t need to search for wisdom on pathetic blogs in a desperate hope to learn portrait photography, don’t I? HA!!! I follow good blogs like Scot Kelby’s blog, Joe McNally’s blog, Creativelive and foremost a blog that resembles as a life’s story of my good friend Jean-Christophe. JC is coming to Fotopub Festival in two weeks!

Where was I? Aha, so I decided to make a tight shot, almost detail like shot. I used a Balcar 1500 Ws with a softbox that was set above left, Nikon D3, Nikkor 105 macro lens. Ana Jarc was assisting me with studio lights and Živa was handling the horse.
