This old bull doesn't have a name since people don't name livestock, but I've been calling him Hyde. He's very old, very gentle, but he doesn't know how dangerous his horns can be. He's skinny, his knees are knobby, and he's got some foggy eyes, but I still wanted to take a portrait of him that made him look distinguished and show off his big horns. I used an off-camera strobe and umbrella. I got lucky with his straight-on stare because he was more interested in the oranges his owners feed him.

Really awesome picture and great lighting. I personally would have darkened the top left edge of the barn a little bit as it visually intersects with the bulls head.

Thanks so much. I really appreciate the advice. I'll make some adjustments for sure.
