The Jumpers

Discussion in 'Sports Photography' started by Hockey_Nut, Jul 22, 2008.

  1. Hey guys,

    I spent the weekend at an equestrian event and came away with some nice shots. My first time doing this kind of sport & there were a number of challenges, mostly trying to get the ideal shot - horse's front legs are high & tucked in tight. Other problems were trying to get a clean shot as the other jumps often got in the way & cluttered the shots. Anyway, here are a couple of my early favourites. Shot most of the time on my knees shooting up at the jumpers to emphasize the height and I think it paid off in many of the photos, especially for the younger kids whose horses don't have to jump as high.

  2. That's good stuff, I like the low angle of view in No. 1 and the eyes in No. 3
