Red Ponytails

Whitney rides Buddy for me a few times a week because he needs training that I'm not good enough to give him.   These two are the redheads in the barn and I like taking photos of them with their ponytails swinging.   Dressage arenas often have mirrors at the end or on the sides so you can check for certain things when you're riding.   I capture those mirrors in some of my photos and it makes me want to take a photo that I say, "Cool!"   There are things in the way that make it a less than perfect backdrop so this one is cropped a bunch and edited with some cloning out of stuff that isn't interesting to see in the shot.   

I'm going to keep trying.   My Sony a6000 can shoot at a burst of 11 frames per second, making it ideal for capturing the motion of horses.   Practice might not make perfect....what's perfect after all?   Practice can make it much better and that's what I'm going to go for.

Have a great Wednesday!

What Have They Done?

Blogger made some changes this week.   I didn't dig in enough to understand them because most, I'm sure, don't apply to my needs...
