LoL, the bucking photos are pure gold. My horse was really frisky today. I wish I could take better pictures! Really good photography on your part, I always mess up the "in motion" pics.

Fantastic! YOU must come visit me! I'll be on stallion row. With Keegan the Friesian. The other (NOMINATED) stallion is Kwintus. He and his owners are Indiana Friesian Horse Assocation members as well. If I'm not on stallion row I'll be on the breed demo row with the IFHA booth and Poetry in Motion, Friesians.

It's going to be an exciting weekend. I hope it doesn't flop though since Equine Affaird just HAD to move their week to our weekend.

Stacey Westfall is going to be at the HHF too.

Come say hi! I love meeting people.

that's a crazy photoshop job o_____o!

I mean.. REALLY.. that's crazy!!! I can't even fathom how difficult that must be... how do you get the background to like.. stay real? Once you take the fence out.. isnt there big blank spots?! O.o;;

How long does it take you to photoshop these pictures?

And what kind of camera do you use? How much was it?

Im in the market for a new camera :p

I do travel! It wouldn't be the first time I've traveled that far for a job. ;)

Hehehe. It takes a lot of patience like I said. It's a healing tool on Photoshop. You just have to basically pick the same colors and textures and re-draw the areas. My photoshops can last between twnety minutes to sometimes an hour for more detailed stuff. I'm not even that great at it to be honest.

I'm using a Canon Rebel XTI 400d. I highly reccomdend Canon to anyone and everyone. I've used Nikon dSLR's and I've used Canon and I always go back to my Canon Rebel. I also have a film Rebel. <3.

Mine cost about 600 dollars, and that was with a kit package. There is a new Rebel called the XSI. I think a XTI (what I have) or an XI (one step below it) are wonderful cameras for hobby photographers or people just learning.

Ooh that would be cool, but I'm in Upper Michigan. About 8 hours from Saginaw. It's a long ways in the middle of nowhere!!

The one where you said about a photoshopping disaster. I do not think it's that bad but I would make the crop more vertical and take off some more of the sides. I'm a professional photographer. I'm just offering my opinion. Take it or leave it. And yes, gettting rid of fencing is a pain and takes a long time but you did a nice job with it. I wish I was around horses on a daily basis to photograph them constantly.
