Saturday Morning Photo Fest…

December 5, 2009


What better way is there to spend your rainy Saturday morning than browsing pretty pony photos? Enjoy!

Mary the Morgan moved to a new barn and she is thoroughly enjoying herself:

Joie de Vivre

And a few images from Moonlit Run Equestrian Center:

Atlas, the handsome and personable Percheron:

Santa should not have any problems with the sleigh this year...


Katie and Val, two lovely Thoroughbred mares:

Mayberry, a Thoroughbred-Paint cross. This was my second time photographing him. He’s quite the photogenic boy.


Mayberry’s owner was game to model for this fun photo, a play on the “dressage queen” stereotype. There was no mirror available so she improvised and used her shiny stirrup iron. All the girls at Moonlit Run are down-to-earth and talented riders, but they also know how to look fabulous for their photo shoot :^)

Another superstar for my barn kitty photo collection:


A study in focal length:

It's all about Perspective: 17mm

Shot at 78mm

It's all about Perspective: 78mm

Lucky is a Thoroughbred-Percheron cross:

Lucky’s full brother, Hercules loved the Cookie Momnster toy:

Hope you enjoyed all the pretty ponies!

    Love the focal length comparisons. I don’t understand many of the technical aspects of photography, but I’d like to learn more. Any good sites you’d recommend?

      Glad you enjoyed them! I’ve learned a lot from the discussion forums on about the technical side of things. YouTube has lots of fun tutorials, too. If you’re in search of a good book, I’d recommend Understanding Exposure.

    Absolutly beautiful, I love the ones of the Morgan… she looks so elegant. I also am very impressed with the lighting, it is just beautiful and so highlights the animal in each and every photo. Just great!!

      So glad you appreciate the light- I do my best to use it to my advantage, even in the harsh winter months. Thank you very much!
