Proper Horse Lighting
Early or late sunlight provides a warm light for your animal photography subjects. But sometimes you can do one-better. In this case, the late day sun was reflecting off of the large barn door windows. Placing the hay in the proper location is the next step to getting the animal properly lit. The reflected light then creates a strong rim light for the subject. No flash needed.
