Yesterday wasn't a pure CANDID theme Portraiture shoot as I felt it wasn't the right scenario so I had to change things up a bit - so we blended in having the two horses running as well. I was crossing my fingers hoping that they wanted to dance so I could finally get some photos of horses bucking and kicking but they just wanted to run in a straight line haha.
Thank you Dave Red Dziedzic and your two lovely Clydesdale mares Queen and Penny for an amazing experience under that incredible sunrise. The #1 barrier when shooting during sunrises and sunsets is timing because it's amazing just how fast that sun moves, 20-30 seconds later and your ambient lighting completely changes. As you already know Dave, I fully support Equine Rescue's and I truly admire what you do. WOW what a stunner that sunrise was.
I have shot landscapes before (though I don't have near as much interest in it as Equine photography) and this is where perhaps some of my skills in shooting landscapes carried over to my Environmental portraiture shots in this session.
