The Stargazing Cowboy

Photographer Notes:
After a nice sunset portrait shoot with Luiz & Ella I was asked if we could get a shot of Luiz and his motorcycle. With some quick lighting changes we captured this shot.

Magnificent look with superb lighting! The evening tones with the blue light as a backdrop add good dimension and a superb touch to this terrific portrait! Excellent work...congratulations on your win today!

Thanks for the comment, Linn. I had something in mind when I set the shot up but it turned out better than I expected.

Good subject isolation and selective lighting make this most effective. Congratulations.

Very nice portrait of the'cowboy'. Congrats!

Cool photo. Beautiful lighting, a wonderful pensive look on your cowboy makes a perfect shot.

Thanks for the positive comments William, Jeannie and Angela. For anyone wondering about the authenticity of my cowboy, Luiz is actually a full time groom at a horse farm. He's a hard working expert (as his many scars will prove). When he's not working he's riding his beloved motorcycle. What a great photo subject he was!

Great lighting, great POV & a neat pensive look & mood created as he takes the time to star gaze along his way...congrats, Monico!
