Sainte Marie de la Mer – Early morning. This trip I wanted to show how graceful these majestic animals are when they glide through the air. The way I had chosen to do this was by showing the movement in their legs. I also decided to shoot blurs for my wild horse art. I told everyone around me I was going to be shooting blurs, the reactions were mixed, however. They gave me frowns but did not pay much mind to it.
After photographing for days and nights; 3 days or so had passed and I had nothing to show for it. It was very difficult to keep the eyes of the horses sharp enough while still blurring the legs. I started to question my ability to achieve blurs as a result. Consequently, I began to question my capabilities as an image-maker.
Everyone around me had started to call me the “master blur.” “Ejaz, The Master blur,” they would also say and laugh. Honestly, I hated it so much. As the days passed and as the end of the trip also came closer, my nerves were shot. But I kept a smile on my face, pretending to be in total control. The fact was I was in a panic, so much so that on my second last day I decided to get a massage.
The title of this wild horse art
My mind kept saying “give it up, Ejaz, give it up just go back to shooting the regular way.” I was so tormented with the title ”master blur.”
The next morning, I was a little more calm, as we were photographing two stallions sparring. Firstly, they were not running which meant no blurs. Boy was I relieved. As we waited for them to spar one of the horses just took off, he didn’t want to spar; he wanted to run free. I wanted to run free also, free from the word BLUR. Seeing him run away, suddenly something came over me, I didn’t care about the result (a blur). I did what I felt to have fun and be in the moment, as soon as I let go and started to enjoy the moment it came to me, I landed up with this blur.
It’s so funny how animals have taught me lessons. He wanted to run free and also be in the moment. I wasn’t able to be Free because I was running after a result and I was not in the moment.

This horse was so powerful when he ran I could clearly see he was the alpha male.
