The Story Behind the Photo

“Tools of the Trade”

Well worn chaps, a comfortable saddle, lariat, and a good horse. Just a few tools of the trade for a true cowboy. These basic tools have remained the same from generation to generation.

This image was captured in Casper, Wyoming at the Central Wyoming Fairgrounds as several Casper College Rodeo Team members prepared for the “Ropin’ & Riggin’ Days Rodeo”.

I chose to use a tight crop on this image to focus more on the detail and textures of all the items. A subtle effect was then applied through editing to create the look of a detailed painting. It is one of my all-time favorite images that I have created.
