This photo of wild horses on a green meadow is one of my favorite spring images. It stuck trough the years and when I think about spring photos that I have in my portfolio this image always comes to my mind.
It’s taken some years ago in 2010. It was taking at the end of a day with no extraordinary conditions for photography when we were about to call it quits. We were following a herd of horses and didn’t have much luck getting close. The clouds were covering the sky and rain was approaching but as we got to a hilltop a ray of light from the setting sun started shining over the meadow and was casting beautiful long shadows of horses and trees. The silhouettes of the horses give a sense of the grand scale of the landscape. The soft light gave that fantasy landscape aesthetic that I always search for, a fine art aesthetic. I used a tele lens at 90 mm and a 1/320 shutter speed with f4,5 because I was shooting handheld due to the fact that the conditions were rapidly changing and didn’t have time to set up a tripod.
It’s that time of the month again when I see how the last month has been and make a top of the most notable photos added to Stocksy. March was a great month in terms of uploads on Stocksy and these are my top 5 picks:
I have been talking and sharing ideas with writer Matthew John Benecke for some time now. He is a great writer and a great guy. He does an excellent job at painting an atmosphere, a tableau and giving a narrative backbone to any image that he has in his mind. After seeing my post about the Dark Dreams series he quickly drafted something up, made a video and sent it to me. I was blown away by the amount of feelings I got from watching it, making me imagine the whole scene and almost feeling the cold wind blowing, so I’ve decided to share it with you:
This video is his work, I only provided the photo. Hope we will work on something more in the future and I’ll be able to be a little bit more involved. The last months have been kind of a “dark dream” for me, so I find it really cool that Matthew took the time to work on something we talked about even if I couldn’t help much.
