We went to a farm in the Onderstepoort area early one morning to take pictures of some cattle and specifically the Nguni because of their interesting and striking colours, making for some exceptional images to put on big canvas. They are very calm animals and it is possible to walk around freely between them and in so doing, we got around a thousand high resolution images of them. One has to be a bit careful around the cows with young calves, as they are very protective of them, understandably so.
They all have different personalities. Some of them couldn’t be bothered while others are very curious about this guy with the funny looking thing in his hands, pointing and shooting at them the whole time. Some of them even poses nicely until they become bored and wander off, looking for greener pastures.
Then it was back to the drawing board or rather the editing suite, trying to create exceptional artwork pieces to exhibit on the website for our clients to browse and order. It literally took about a day spent on each image to get the right effect we were looking for.
We are proud of them and sincerely hope that you will enjoy them!
