Black and white horse photo by Ejaz khan Earth horses running in water

The story behind this amazing black and white horse photo.

Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, Early Evening. 

Every time I go to France, I go with an expectation of achieving at least one good black and white horse photo. I have been traveling for so many years, and I know the land, light, also the patterns, etc. 

The question in my mind this time was, “how do I achieve something different?” I didn’t want to depend on a horse doing something different with its body or expressions, like kicking or biting for example. Instead, I tried to use my experience to come up with a solution. 

I took out a piece of paper and made so many notes. I also made rough sketches. Being organized made me feel so much in control. The more I added to my list, the more I felt in control as a result. Consequently, I started taking this list very seriously. 

After shooting for a couple of days, I was very unhappy with the results. How could that be, my lists were so perfect. I had every move also spelled out. But the black and white horse photo I was after was horrible. 

At home, we have so many traditions. For example, my boys and I always say to each other, “have fun” at school and work. It’s a thing we say to each other every day and also every night. 

After the black and white horse photo shoot

After my shoot that night, I called home. Meanwhile, the first question my son asked me was, “Dad, are you having fun?”

Most importantly, that snapped everything into place as a result. Therefore, the next day, the only thing I focused on was to enjoy myself. Not only did I achieve everything on my list, but I came back feeling happy with my results.

When my shoot ended that night, I called home after that. The first question my son asked me was, “Dad, are you having fun?”

Above all, that snapped everything into place. During the next day, the only thing I focused on was to enjoy myself. Not only did I achieve everything on my list, but I came back feeling happy with the results of this black and white horse photo.
