Bi Weekly Challenge ~ Nature ~ Maybe
I think all animals are part of nature, but my camera club would say that a domestic animal wouldn't be considered Nature, but there is nature all around my horses, so you tell me what you think!
Thanks for looking! Have a wonderful weekend! I am excited, I am meeting with Kay N and LeeAnn (bugaboo) to take lots of photos for the weekend! :o)
A Tribute to My Horse, Lory
I had to give my mare away because I can't take her to college. Some of the pictures aren't that great, but this is just a post to show her off a little bit.
Let's see random facts: She's 25, Saddlebred Mix, trained for Endurance Racing, in perfect health, sassy, loves chaos, noise, trailers, and new experiences. She's about 16hh, has smooth gaits, she'll also jump and herd cattle, but she wont do dressage.
Negative Space Challenge
Understanding the "basic's" of Negative Space I hope these fit the bill.
I've been experiencing the negative space in my ears lately due to pressure problems of flying a few weeks ago. It got so bad (that's how I was feeling) I had to see a specialist and I'm on the mend now :)
Thanks for looking and hope I met the Challenge.
Cumulative Learning . . . .
I took photos from several angles and distances of Hawk's beautiful, pale blue eyes.
I think this one combines both challenge basics - fill the frame, and thirds.
Thirds Challenge and some quickies before breakfast.!
I picked up Jaryd one day last week but he was feeling puny and didn't want to ride around he just wanted to go to poppa's house and watch Tom & Jerry! By the time we got close to home the sun was up so I took the scenic route to sneak in some shooting... but I felt guilty cause he didn't feel well so I ended up just shooting out the window of the truck. So, these were all shot quick and dirty!
Peek-a-boo with the sun!
Catchin' some rays He looked like he was waiting for the sun to get up.
Headshot Blow up of the above.
I'll have thirds This was our breakfast and it was really a quickie set-up cause I didn't want the pancakes to get cold. It suffers for it but does demonstrate the rule of thirds.
These aren't my best but you know what they say... If you can't shoot the ones you love then love the ones you shoot!
It Has Been Awhile....Stalking
How could I resist? These Amish Teens were on one of the side roads. They saw us come over the hill and scrambled. They were putting their cigarettes out and hiding their beer. Some of the girls had their bonnets untied and thier hair down. This is a common place for them to hang out and be teens.
Horse Eyes - Composition Help?
One of my favorite things to try to capture is a horse's eye, but I can never seem to get the composition quite right. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Any comments, suggestions, or critiques would be much appreciated!
Two of My Favorite Things To Photograph
Eventually our little endeavor will be put into a western coffee table book, Cowboy calendars and more.
Thank you for looking...
If you like this one, I will be happy to share more. Thanks for looking.
Fill in the blanks....
BSV asked if there were any pics of the sleigh bells. I can not believe that I didn't get a close up of them! But if you look closely at the horse on the right you can kind of see them. They are right behind I think it is called a yolk. They are 3 of them that you can see. They are dark they don't shine anymore but they still sound absolutely beautiful! *
Sorry these aren't bigger, but it's my way of protecting them from use. I know I could put a copyright notice across the front, but that seems even more destructive of seeing the image.
One of "those" Days
Here are a couple of the originals and the results:
Enjoy! Let me know what you think. Any other suggestions?
