Nationally Published Advertising and Editorial Cowboy, Cowgirl and Western Fashion Photography by Advertising Photographer, Steve Thornton

Shot just outside of Las Vegas, NV on a perfect afternoon in direct sunlight. Notice that the hats do not loose detail even in the very hard sunlight. This is because I had an assistant 70 feet towards the sun with a light modifying device that is normally only used in the motion picture industry. This allows me to maintain the detail without loosing the "edge" of hard light. I had another assistant off to my left with a 4' x 6' reflector bouncing light primarily on the woman's face to ensure a good "Beauty" light.

This image was shot with a 200mm f1.8 lens shot at f1.8. Shooting a "Fast" telephoto lens wide open makes the background blur out which pulls the eye to the models & the hats. The image was then processed with an Adobe Camera RAW Converter then retouched and finished in Photoshop.
