#780 Dancing Horses Photo Safari Review

A week ago a group of photographers joined us to explore the equine world of dressage with their cameras at a private farm – Northern Equestrian Centre. Our host, Alison, was very good to us, lining up horses and riders as well as near perfect weather for the shooting session (Thanks Alison and riders!)

Weather was warm and the nice diffused light helped photographers. We started with a warm-up exercise of horse portraits with more challenges as the afternoon progressed. Photographers were encouraged to push their own levels a little – everyone got something they liked.

And the students enjoyed themselves:

Overall the safari was great.  I wasn’t sure what to expect as this is the first safari or formal photography workshop I have done.  I really liked the structure and definately the subject matter.

…really enjoyed it.  photographing something that big had some challenges but it was fun. i loved doing the portraits.

Thank you for organizing this workshop, I really enjoyed it.

You were great as well, I know some of the people there are regulars of yours but you made me feel welcome.
