Taking Pictures of equine!

How does everybody besides me seem to be able to get such good pictures of horses? I just never seem to get a good picture. Does anybody have advice?


Ps. I am talking about neat pictures. Like them running, (how do you get them to run for a pic?), or arching their neck, things like that.

I get my horses to run by swinging a lead rope and making them run around in their pasture and can make my 1 year old buck by getting really close-but not close enough to get kicked-and swinging the rope really hard so it makes a whistling noise and he'll buck and take off runnin' then my other horses get excited and take off runnin' after him lol =]

Always keep your camera with you and ready. I've found that's the only way to avoid having 1000 pictures of head down, grazing horses

Best thing I can say is always have a camera ready and a horse who does not want to be caught!

It really helps to have a nice camera; for example I have a great Canon. They take lovely pictures. Using macro is good too.

Practise makes perfect.
Don't be afraid to take heaps of photos!
And don't think we all get perfect shots everytime... I can take up to 50 shots in one day (sometimes 80 lol but that's cos I have three horses and an obsession with taking photos) and I usually keep half of them, and even then only a few go online... getting things in the right frame (ie not getting a horse with seemingly 3 legs) is hard! Don't be afraid to really keep taking shots. You can always delete them later!!
Good luck!

It takes alot of time and patience and being in the right spot at the right time.

Just make sure you have rapid shot on your camera. Because horses do move quick. That or if your horse is trained then it makes shot like my stallion on the left look easy.

But keep trying though you will get a nice shot.

Wish you all the best

My horses are just genuinly flighty in the field and stupid, haha. They spook at people on the canal, random objects in the field. The last one I found was a wind surfing board in the bush, lmfao. They went bonkers over it XD

I take my camera everywhere I go.

I have owned quite a few camera's over the years, my last one was a Fujifilm pix one (I think that's what it was called) I lost it in the house fire though.

It was pretty awesome, getting these shots -





That's all I will post here, because there's going to be a topic with these photo's in soon.

I now own a Sony a200 DSLR now, I havn't been able to take any photo's yet because it's too wet, dark and muddy in winter and yeah. I'm going to wait until it snows or dries up, then take some XD
