The Unity of Your Passion and Art
Equestrian Photography: The Unity of Your Passion and Art – What is the difference between a good photo and a great photo? A great photograph conveys the mood, vibe, and uniqueness of a fleeting moment. It also mesmerizes, arrests attention, and reveals more details the longer you look at it. A great photo is always alive with emotions. “How do I turn liveliness and naturalness of my pictures up to eleven?” you may ask. It’s simple, take your family pet with you! If you’re an owner of a horse, you can consider yourself a lucky person. Not only are horses noble and gorgeous animals but also they are ideal sidekicks for your photo adventures. Equestrian photography is a swirl of positive emotions for you, a delight for others, and wondrous illustrations for your photo archive.
The feelings sweeping you over while interacting with a horse are priceless. The exchange of looks, spontaneous smiles, and a sense of trust – that’s all you need for amazing pictures. The sincerity and authenticity of this experience make equestrian photo sessions unique, vibrant, and scintillating.
Vicke and Katalina Photoshoot
I love it when my clients bring their animals to the set. Cats, dogs, and other four-legged friends are a remedy against constrain and stiffness. Indeed, people who don’t have much experience with posing for a camera tend to be slightly tense but once an animal walks into the room, the awkwardness evaporates. There is something relaxing and soothing in the way they look at their humans, in their body language. The love and affection they give to us is a spectacle you can’t take your eyes off. The inextricable connection between a person and their animal adds bright colors to any photoshoot.
That’s why I was so excited when we started planning Vicke’s photoshoot with her horse. <3 A fabulous woman and her beautiful horse together in the same shot is a recipe for mind-blowing photographs.
Photos came out charming
Vicke and Katalina were great models and super easy to work with. Katalina instinctively knew what we wanted from her and she did a great job on posing and looking glorious. She became the perfect partner for Vicke to emphasize her natural grace and femininity. Together, they created an astounding blend of strength and vulnerability, agility and calm, animal magnetism, and the spirit of humanism. The thing that stands out the most to me in these photographs is the bond between Vicke and Katalina. Weaved of trust, admiration, and love for each other, this bond was one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen through the lens of my camera. It felt almost like the ties between a mother and her child. Come to think of it, Katalina is like Vicke’s baby, her little big girl.
Family Joins Vicke’s Photoshoot
Vicke’s actual family joined the session, too, at Wind Song Farms Equestrian Center. Outdoors photography with Vicke, her boyfriend Patrick, and their four almost-adult kids is a touching display of love and affection in a blended family. What I see when I look at these photos is genuine happiness and care for one another. It was a blessing to capture their pure emotions and convert them into beautiful family portraits.
Vicke wasn’t the only person who brought something very special to the shoot (her Katalina!). Patrick had an ace up his sleeve, too, and it was a powerful, sleek, and sumptuous steel horse. The classic vintage car fit into the theme of the photoshoot perfectly. It created an amazing contrast between the beauty made by nature and man-built wonders. Being her owner’s joy and pride, the 68 Camaro became a spot-on backdrop for a romantic love story between Vicke and Patrick.
Looking back at this extended photoshoot, I can boldly say that it was one of the best moments in my carrier as a photographer. Equestrian photography turning into a family photo shoot and then morphing into a love story – this is the kind of experience I live for.
Long-lasting Joy of Equestrian Photography
