Canon 7D

Got some interesting shots during my first show - this one of our program horse, Honey, really stood out.  If you're interested in seeing the color version (she has a beautiful dun coat that compliments her blue eyes!), check out my facebook page.  The horses had to put up with shenanigans like egg-and-spoon races, underwear races, ride-a-buck, cup races, etc.  It was fun! 

Entered in :iconall-photographers: Summer in Black and White contest.  Check it out!

Thank you!  She's such a joy to photograph, I'm glad her adopter brings her back to the rescue whenever it hosts shows and events.  I can't get enough of her unique coloring.  =D

Her eye is absolutely mesmerizing in this shot. And like the others said, the shot is so crisp! Nicely done!

Thank you!  I'm thrilled my 7D stood up to the challenge even after my husband nearly frying it last year.  It just proves how durable the camera is.  :giggle:

My teammate and I were always hearing comments like that.  It's what inspired us to become Team Mule.  ;)

That really is a great composition and a beautiful horse. Both colour and monochrome versions are amazing.

If you don't mind me asking, how do you get such crisp photos? I'm assuming some of it happens during post-processing?

Thanks! 

I don't mind at all!  Some of it is done during post, but it's easiest to get it while taking the photo.  There's a million different things that factor into it, so hopefully I don't overwhelm you too much.  Good quality lenses, if you have a DSLR.  Shutter speed based off of the focal length an speed of the subject, choosing the focus points, lighting, and keeping the ISO as low as you can.  What camera/lenses do you use?  I'll be able to get a little more technical or at least point you in the direction of better-written tutorials for ya. 

Hopefully that mess above makes sense, I'm waiting for my coffee to kick in, haha.

This is a magnificent shot!  Her eye stands out even in black and white.

And I'd love to see the colour version.  ;)
