“Soft Lighting”

I feel very fortunate to have created this image.  I was in a barnyard with lots of equipment and wood structures.  The lighting was very complex and I was following the sheep in and out of bright light and shaded areas.  This image was one of those intuitive moments with nature photography.  The sheep positioned itself in an area with a very dark background and front light created a soft, almost rim-like effect on the sheep’s face and structure.  So, when photographing animals, keep changing your position and try to beware of background at all times.

  1. Hi Veronika,
    This is one of my very favorites. The lighting says it all, including the way it lights up the eyelashes and the small hairs on the little fellow’s chin. A delight. Judy
