The short story of how I take horse images in black and white.
Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer. Early evening. The sheer scale and also the grace with which horses move make them ideal subjects to shoot. We are accustomed to seeing horses run on land, but they are equally impressive in the water. They take on an amphibious nature — half running, and also half swimming in slow motion. Above all, my objective was to display the flow of their manes with the movement of the water.
Firstly, I started to observe their timing and tried to synchronize mine with theirs. They have a constant rhythm to their movement; the horses moved in tandem with the water. I was determined to capture both the water and the horses at the instant when the water splashed over their legs and torsos. I failed many many times, but finally, I did get this shot.
As you can see, the visual lines of the water break align with those of their manes as a result.

Horse images in black and white photo prints by Ejaz Khan.
I love black and white photography which some people call it fine art photography. I normally take horse photos while keeping in mind how it will look at the end – when it’s all finished and hanging in a frame in my art gallery or someone’s home. For our fine art exhibitions in New York City, we use fine art gallery quality matte paper or also metallic paper. The latter gives it a very realistic look as a result. Art buyers who have purchased our large 4 by 6 feet images for their homes and offices have always written back thanking us for the positive energy they get from the black and white photo print. We also sell fine art horse photos in smaller sizes and I’m proud to say the response is identical. The smallest size horse picture we create is 8 inches by 12 inches.
These horse images in black and white make for ideal wall decor, for home, office, and also establishments. Part of the sale amount goes towards organizations that help preserve so many magnificent beasts from the affects of climate change.
