Abi and Danny: An Equine Photography Session, Kent

Abi and Danny: Weather SOS

Abi and Danny were gifted a voucher for a portrait session last year. Last week we finally got a date in the diary, half term was the golden time and so we made a plan. The weather on the other hand had decided it was bored of grey and decided that the we had planned was the day rain…all day!

Corky Fat Pants and Katie: An Equine Photography Session, Kent

An Equine Portrait Session in Sussex: Corky Fat Pants and Katie

Following a successful competition over on Facebook I had the pleasure of meeting Mr Corky Fat Pants himself! We were blessed with lovely a crisp clear day with lots of sunshine and I was very excited to meet the horse behind the very unique name! First of all Katie and I had a wander around the yard, Bislington Priory. Due to the amazing setting we had a few options for posing.

Katie and I ran through how the shoot would go and also a ‘must haves’ and ‘nice to have’ lists on the go. Part of the prize was a gorgeous Equestrian Stockholm set in plum – which looked lush!

Hoggy the Perfect Equine: By Kent Equine Photographer, Frog and Field

Hoggy the Perfect Equine

For my birthday I was treated to a riding lesson with a difference. No cold, no mud and lots of learning. Meet Hoggy my new horse! Those that follow my blog will be aware of my fear of riding but I have started to really miss it. Maybe because it’s winter and I’m not out and about every weekend taking pics and kissing ponies. For most people, the winter is when they least want to ride but for me it’s when I have the most time.

Editing your pictures: What and why?

So, you read my last blog post and you decided to brave and change from JPEG to RAW, well now what….. Editing your pictures!

FYI, you can often set your camera to shoot in both if you can’t make up your mind!

RAW or JPEG- Who, what and why?

You may remember in a previous post we had a chat about manual versus auto settings on the camera and how each different component can make up the exposure triangle. What we didn’t chat about was RAW or JPEG and the file options we choose.

Loose Reins- A NYE with a western twist by Kent Equine Photographer Frog and Field

After seeing Loose Reins pop up my timeline a few times I decided to get on with it and book a stay.

I have a love hate relationship with NYE. I love what it symbolises, new starts, new goals and a fresh slate but I always find the evening is a bit of an anti climax. So with this in mind we decided a stay in a log cabin would be perfect!

Your DSLR-Getting to know it

Oh, the joys of a DSLR! When I did my A-Level in photography many years ago it was with a manual camera that you had to load film into! It was delightfully simple and I loved wondering around taking pictures of plants (yup not horses-strange right)

So, when husband proudly presented me with my first DSLR, a Nikon 3300, I was horrified. I didn’t want a DSLR I wanted a manual. Now I realise this makes me sound like a brat but bear with me. Truthfully it was because I did not have a clue how to use it. Not a sausage. So, there was Richard sat there all happy and proud of himself and me thinking crap. Actually, those that know me will know there are a few swear words I especially like but I don’t think the blog is for them.
