  1. I LIKE IT! Great addition to your Bromont blog. You couldn’t ask for a better reviewer to do it for you. After a while, all that inexperienced viewers (like me) see is horse, jump, horse, jump. The information makes it so much more interesting. πŸ™‚

  2. What a bonus you are giving us! (I could never be a show rider!! Wait, I can’t even ride a horse.)

    When I read “roach” on her back, I thought … what is a cockroach doing on the rider.

      • The 3×3 box you see on the viewfinder or the “monitor” of your dslr. In a Photography class I attended last semester, that’s what photographers use to perfectly frame their subject. And i thought you used it. Sooo nice πŸ™‚

      • Oh, OK. I get it. the answer is NO. Firstly I never use the display, I always shoot through the view finder and a grid would annoy the crap out of me. Usually I let my eye lead my frame. I put what I want in the middle and shoot. Once I get it on the computer I crop away what doesn’t fit. With practice I know how much to zoom in on.

        With horses, the rule of thumb is the head should be in the middle of the frame and then get the whole body. But this more a guide.

        To me a photograph is a story. For example this picture. I hope I conveyed what I felt when I took it. A magnificent white horse going over and incredibly high jump. The feeling of power emanating from the horse and the controlled atmosphere of the rider. Your mind replaying the entire jump with your imagination.
        Oh my God I sound like some kind of artsy-fartsy!

        “Shoot the damn picture and make sure it’s in focus!” πŸ˜€

      • Yeah. What I liked about the picture is the perfection of framing. We had taught on how to frame moving objects right, and to tell you, it’s really a pain-in-the-booty. That is why, I was stunned so much on this. The horse, especially. So beautiful.

      • Thank you. I love movement! I get bored with portraits. On this particular day my framing was ON! But there days when I’m off by a hair, either too far forward or backward. But in moving subjects it’s all about timing. That’s also why I shoot horses. I’m used to the speed they are moving at and can anticipate what they are going to do.
        Your make-up shots, there is no excuse for framing, you are not moving. πŸ™‚

      • Taking photos of moving objects (for me) is hard. I didnt know why I am so good at timing in cooking, but not timing in photography. I once did a landscape shot of a speeding car. I thought I did it, I looked at my shot and said “where did the car go, man?”

        Ah yes. “Selfies” of course. I think that is the least one to require framing and skill. Everybody can do that
