HORSE PHOTOGRAPHY GALLERY | YOU NEVER KNOW
Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer. Early evening. I was on location, and it started to drizzle. The light was so low that setting up my camera to achieve a sharp image was not possible. I decided to do the blurs. When doing blurs, it was imperative that I panned with the horse's pace to create lack of movement between the camera and the horse while maintaining to look at his eyes clearly.
I was not achieving what I was going for due to the raindrops blurring my vision to see his eye. Typically I would have given up and gone back to shooting sharp images. In this case, I didn’t have a choice. The light was meager, and if I had to photograph sharp images, they would be super dark. I decided to create even more drastic blurs by changing my camera settings immensely. After the first attempt, I realized not only was I getting my blurs, I was also getting streaks of water flying which was creating a better effect than I had in mind. I was pleased with the result.
Trying something new will always result in a new outcome. It’s for us to give it a chance.
I have traveled to Camargue, France to capture this and many more fantastic horse art photographs. I welcome you to visit my art gallery in New York City. If you like the images online, you'll love them when you see the life-sized photos in person. You can buy this photograph in four sizes. We print them on Kodak metallic paper then with a special adhesive, glue it to plexiglass. Our black and white pictures are museum quality with a lifelong guarantee on them.
