This image is a composite of three images of the same stallion. He is a Friesian owned by Stefanie Maas of Cave Creek, AZ. I shot these with my Canon Rebel XT and the Canon 70-200 IS lens. I used the extract tool to remove the unattractive bg and replaced it with a texture layer. I then added more “dust” and textures.

I am an artist working in oils and pastels as well as photography. My subject matter is mainly portraiture and figures. I have been painting for many years and have won awards for my paintings including a first place award in the Pastel Journal Magazine’s Pastel 100 competition and first place in the Richeson 75 competition.
I am married with two grown children and reside in Scottsdale, AZ.

    Are they Friesians?? one of my fav breeds as well as Andalusians

  • Hi Rebecca! Yes this is a Friesian stallion. It is a composite of 3 different images of the same stallion. I shot these with my canon rebel xt and the 70-200 IS lens while sitting of the ground in a paddock with him running free. He is a beautiful and gentle horse. His name is Leo and his owner is Stefanie Maas of Cave Creek, AZ., USA
    I used PSCS3 extract filter to remove the bg and added layers of texture to create a mood that hopefully conveys the power and dramatic beauty of this breed. Thanks for your comments :)
