South Dakota Quarter Horse Association Shoot-Out or Can you say “High ISO”?

Filed under: Gear, Uncategorized — Four Winds Photography @ 5:11 AM

It has been months since I have been there! I can’t believe how fast this summer has gone! In June, I spent 6 days shooting the South Dakota Quarter Horse Association “Shoot Out”! in Brookings, South Dakota. This was, as I understand it, the first 5 judge AQHA show in the United States. Being such you would expect the turn-out for this show to be huge. Lots of AQHA points for the grabbing. And I know the show committee was expecting this. And I also suspect they were hugely disappointed. As was I 😦 The turn out for the show was really dismal.

After we got home my wife and I were having coffee and I was griping about how disappointing the show was financially. She said “But we got to spend the week together and we met some really nice people.” She always has a better outlook on such things than I do! It was a fun week. Tiring, but fun. But now to the topic at hand.

Which is shooting indoor horse shows in low light.  I have promised many of you this post on some of the forums.  I apologize for how long it has taken me to do this.  But now, finally, here it is.  Click here to go to the article.

Equine Photography Equipment Part 1

Filed under: Gear — Tags: — Four Winds Photography @ 8:45 PM

The next 3 blogs will be about the equipment you need to photograph horses and horse shows.  Or as my wife likes to refer to subject, bankruptcy.   I am dividing this subject into three blogs because there is so much to cover:

  1. Cameras
  2. Lenses
  3. Lighting

I will talk about cameras in this first session or actually camera bodies.  By necessity much of this is going to be tediously basic for some of you.  For others of you starting out I hope you find this is helpful
