Lately I’ve been thinking about my horse photography and how I approach a new session. I started in my photography journey being hugely inspired by @timflachphotography, but I feel that I’ve lost sight of that, and in essence, lost sight of myself. I always prided myself on being different despite going against the norms, and now I’m trying to get back to that. So, with that said, I’ll be having a model call or two which will be super low key to allow myself to get back into the swing of shooting for me.
This was a gift! It was back in 2005 I had just purchase my first digital camera, a Canon Rebel and quickly unpacked the box and went up to on of our horses when I lived in Montana and snapped this image. I had no clue what I was doing but when I saw this image I was hooked on photographing horses. It would take me six more years before I knew how to create an image like this again. #horselove#equinephotography#equinephotographer#pocket_horses#raw_horses#montana#rural_love
Watching wild horses at play gives you so much insight into how they are meant to naturally use their bodies. Effortlessly shifting their weight into their haunches, maintaining balance, aware of their surroundings; all while having fun! This is movement of the horse at it’s finest.
The winter here seems as though it has been long, perhaps because we have been caught in the deep snow and cold longer than the previous few winters on the prairie.
I’m itching for a road trip; hoping for it to be clear enough to drive into the foothills on my own soon, and see if I can find this band again. See how they fared over the winter, and how much they have grown!
