Sunset shoots are best photographed in spring and autumn. Obviously heavily dependent on the weather (this is Manchester after all!) all I need is a scenic field for the horse to graze in, with a clear view of the skyline, and some time just before sunset. These photographs can also be staged with a rider, however due to the timing of the shoot and the fading light, the horse and rider must be stood still. Action shots would be a black silhouette against the sunset, and take a little more planning, but are artistic in their own right.
