Introduction to Photography Part 2 – How to Take Better Photo’s

In Part 1 of this Introduction to Photography series I provided some tips for taking better photos that I first shared in an Introduction to Photography course that I ran at our local Community Resource centre back in 2012. These are general basic tips aimed at the beginner photographer starting out with a point and shoot or entry level dslr camera on how to take better photo’s.  In the future I might write some additional posts on more advanced techniques and...

Why I chose the 5D Mark IV for Equine Photography

Some photographers get all bent out of shape about which is better, Nikon or Canon, I’ve had both, they are excellent brands but for me personally, the Canon line feels better in my hand and I find it more intuitive to use than Nikon.  I also now have a decent investment in Canon glass that I am very happy with, especially my workhorse 70-200mm 2.8L which is the original non-IS version that has never let me down in nearly ten years...

Black and white Fine Art Horse photography

There is just something about black and white photography that makes its something really special.  Maybe because the timeless elegance of black and white allows it to suit different styles of decor or maybe its simply because removing the colour allows the true beauty of the subject to shine, especially when the subject is a stunning horse! Here are a few new black and white artistic horse photographs that I have added to my print and product shops....

Farm Life – Horse Riding

I normally won’t post photos of myself on the internet, even on Facebook, but I do occasionally make exceptions when the photo also involves the divine Miss Tessa, and its been way too long since I have ridden regularly that I feel the need to celebrate!
