I try to approach every year photographing the Northern Wisconsin State Fair with a unique vision. This year I wanted to create isolated portraits of the Junior Horse Show competitors while preserving the atmosphere that they were pulled from. With a couple of great volunteers, we walked the riding arena grounds in search of riders. One volunteer carried a black foam backdrop used as the separation media and the other hauled my lighting setup. Each setup only took a few seconds to position before I was able to create the portraitures. I really love how authentic these feel while still being drawn into the portraits.
