Nov. 9

Beef Stockyards. My assignment was to shoot a cover shot for our weekly farming publication of a cow in a stockyard. Being a cover shot it had to be shot like a square with room for text all around everything but the center of the image. After finishing that, I was already ankle deep in cow poop and figured I'd have some fun framing cows. None of these are being published. I'll post some daily stuff soon. Enjoy!

Yo man, I'm digging the first four. Pretty cool. I really like the different angle on the second one and just the framing and placement of the first one.

Hey dude, been a while. Cool stuff for sure. I think the fourth one is killer in the composition and tonality. Did you drink milk from the udders after the shoot?
