Good news, we're not going to get into a lecture on trigonometry! But what we are going to talk about is how you can start to think outside the box when it comes to photographing horses.
The easiest thing to do when we have our camera in hand and a horse in front of us is to simply start shooting. Head on, profile shots, full body shots, we move our lens all over that horses body looking for the right shot.
But how often do you step outside of that pattern and shoot from a position that is different? How will changing the angle from which you shoot affect the composition of your shots, and how creative can you get by changing the angle?
Most of today's cameras feature screens that tilt and move in ways that will allow you to shoot in "live view" and get angles that challenging to achieve without using a ladder or laying in the dirt. If your camera has that feature, experiment with it! Get creative, but as always make your safety your first priority.
Have fun gang and happy shooting! And remember, if you have a question that you'd like answered please drop me a line and I'll answer it here on my blog.
