I love the clean, timeless look of a good equine black background photo. You really get to see the lines of the horse, their expressive eyes, and their personality! I recently ran a special in the Clarksville, TN area for horse sessions, which brought me to Locust Run Stables in Adams, TN for Samson’s black background session. As you can see, he’s a total sweetheart Thoroughbred, who was a natural in front of the camera.
Black background sessions are 30 minutes long and typically include 5-7 hand edited images. A barn aisle, indoor arena or shaded area are all that is needed for these types of equine shoots, so don’t let the fear of not having ‘good enough’ facilities stop you! I travel throughout the middle Tennessee region and am located directly in Clarksville, TN. Black background sessions are offered at a discounted rate when multiple sessions are booked, making these a great option for barn photos.
