Equine Photography

Just wanted to share some of my photo's from 2010! Enjoy! Also feel free to critique. This was my first year doing private photo shots and horse shows, I must be doing something right because every person I did photo's for has had me back a 2nd time to do more. I am also the official photographer for 6 events so far in 2011.

Very nice photos!! I'm jealous of your success! Lol. I need to put myself out there as a photographer and see what I can really do!

You have a good eye for composition, but you're really lacking in editing. Imo you need more contrast in all of your pictures. You also need to be aware of your lighting - harsh lighting is never attractive. Also - most of your pictures look in focus, but they look a tad soft. They need sharpened a bit.

I hope you don't mind - but I just had a real quick play with my favorite shot that you posted ...

I have actually already edited that photo further, I had taken that one on my first ever photoshoot this spring, it wasn't a paid shoot so I didn't really go all out at first, but did fix it later.

I personally don't really like how you edited it, but that's just me. I have spent hours editing this picture, here is the original. For being all self taught I think I'm a rather good editor. Would like to take some classes though someday.

I'll share some more pictures tomorrow, to tired to think right now.

Nice photos.

Twilight, I like your posted photo (your edit) better than JulieinPA's edit. Yours looks natural, hers looks edited.

I hate nothing more than a photo that looks photo shopped.

I have to agree with you there, there's nothing more I dislike than a photo you can tell was edited right away, unless that's the look the artist was going for. I do some major photo editing for fun, but when it comes to selling them people don't like them because they are too over the top, but that's fine with me, I still like to make them. Here are a few of the unedited edited versions of the pictures above. Bet most of you couldn't tell the images above were edited.

A few other photo's I have taken.

And here are some over the top edits(aka photo manipulations) I have done.

Very nice photos, I WISH I could do any editing! What program do you use?

I use Abobe Photoshop CS2. I have also recently learned how to change a horse from chestnut or bey to black. Here's an example, the horse used was originally chestnut.
