Helios 44-2 [part 3]
My summer was partially dedicated to the stable and all the fun around it. Other part was about trips to Wildwood, NJ and waiting for the summer to finally pass.
I was always admiring equine photographers, I still believe it is one of the most beautiful types of photography. Equine photographers are trully creating art trough their camera (and post editing, of course)
By the way, I found this one recently @anutaontikova, she's so freaking good!
When there were days of lessons with people I knew, I brought my camera with me to the places where my students rode and...just took photos of them! Mostly of horses, actually, as people weren't always happy with what I'm doing. Sometimes I would stay inside the stable in my free time slot and just let some horse hang around the inside arena and took photos there.
I have one student that I'm still working with. We were having lessons for some period of time, that were always catching the time of sunset. The horse she rode was light red/brown haired and he (the horse) looked amazing in the light of the setting Sun. I brought my camera on one of the lessons and we were shooting nearly half of the time. This is my favorite equestrian photoshoot.
The tricky part is that horses always move, move FAST and manual focus is not at all good for that.
But I still love it.
