The Silhouettes From the Hideout Ranch – Topaz Webinar

The Wranglers at the ranch were amazing. For the first shot, we were photographing in the other direction, however,  when I looked behind me to see what the sky was doing, Daniel and Ramon were sitting there waiting for us to recognize the wonderful photo op they set up. The others were done in situations where we specifically set up the possibility of silhouettes.  Such fun!

The recorded version of my most recent Topaz Webinar is available to watch here.

    You are rockin’ these silhouettes, John! I especially like the first one. Nice skies, too.

    Silhosensational! Each is amazing! The middle one looks as if the rider and horse are stirring up not only the dust, but the sky and clouds as well! Dramatic and powerful work JB!

    Now we know where the old Marlboro commercials were photographed! Only they weren’t as cool as these! NICE!
