twenty-one(ish). female. canadian. slight photographer. riding for 17 years. horseless equestrian.
when photographing a horse and rider trotting, I always keep my eye on the horse’s inside front leg. when that leg stretches forward, I snap the photo. that way, the rider is sitting in the saddle (assuming they’re on the correct diagonal) and the horse is stretchy and pretty
when photographing a horse and rider cantering, I keep an eye on the inside front and time it so I get the photo when the horse is fully extended and it doesn’t look like its balancing awkwardly or something
thats my super sophisticated approach to life
exactly how it should be done for trotting. no speed burst, time your photos, and you’ll get it right almost every time, instead of chancing for a good one on burst.@1 week ago with 65 notes
