MY FIRST PHOTOSHOOT WITH A HORSE

PREVIOUS / NEXT

ANIMALS by KRISS on 24 october 2015

This was a few years back my first experience shooting horses.
I won’t go play in my cousin’s in laws (Roberto Dutesco www.dutescoart.com) playground I have neither the means nor the talent or opportunity but I was quite happy shooting this young cheerful first horse owner.

So the story behind this shoot was that this lucky young girl got a horse for her 18th birthday.
Oh my god, I have just realized I hope either horses are cheap when my last girl grows up or she quits the idea of owning one ! Shame on me.

And of course she wanted to immortalize her new friend and promised me the horse was very well behaved.

I am not a horse specialist, far from it, barely ever been close to horses but once it was a very powerful experience, and it’s not the one time a horse stepped on my foot.
But I could tell her horse was far from behaved and well trained.
So the shoot did take a little bit more time.

I especially like the soft images you can take with a setting sun in the background and a couple of soft boxes on the front.
This is how these images were realized with a nikon D800 camera body and a Sigma 85mm f1.4 lens.
If I had owned a 70-200 f2.8 at that time I think I would have gone for it !

Later on our photographic adventures had us shooting milk dresses on a horse and that was far more complicated than this simple training exercise !

More about that in another post.
