(BRUSH, CO., JULY 4, 2004) *FOR VIEWFINDER* I photographed this somewhat abstract photo of a horses neck cropping it's head and body out because I found the line of its neck and vertical lines of its braid a nice detail, in Brush, Colorado July 2004. I shot this picture with a Japanese Yashica-A Twin Lens Reflex camera with a built in 80mm lens. I used 100ISO ILFORD DELTA PRO 120 size film, and shot the photo at f22, at 1/100th of a sec. Conditions were bright overhead noon sun. The high noon soon made for the harsh shadows under the horses neck and braids, but also created a beautiful strong reflective glow off the animals shinny hair and coat. Harsh noon sun was a huge problem that day, but my over two hour drive to the lovely town of Brush, commanded I make a photo. My solution to the noon sun was to settle for strong shadows and attempt a graphic photo instead of finding a moment that I would have destroyed by having to use harsh direct strobe.
