Jockey & The Horse
Shooting with animals always has it’s own difficulties. Unlike many humans, animals not always understand what is going on around them. Bringing huge bright flash or umbrella may scare animal, which in my case was the horse. To be honest, even for many people, having giant bright flash shooting in their eyes is not a pleasant experience at times. Being patient and understanding how animal feels is the key. Today I’ve learned few new things about horses that I didn’t know before. I won’t be covering animal whispering subject here, but working with professional that know their business is always great pleasure. Special Thank you to Pam and her business Pammy’s Pony Parties & Petting Zoo! Located in Rancho Santa Fe, CA.

My set for the photshoot
Opposite view. My trusty 46inch Softlighter II, with LowePro Whistler 350 backpack and Interfit S1 monolight.
All images below I shot using Nikon D810 with Sigma Art 50mm Lens. Unfortunately I couldn’t shoot many pictures with the strobe, so I had to replace strobe with Profoto Sun Silver Bounce, since sun started poking out the clouds. Anyways, enjoy my photos.
