Get to recognise natural props

When you train you eye to really see the best of your area, you are already winning! Try and work out how it what you can use around you, and how it will look with a horse and owner in it…

Natural frames

This is the art of spotting natural areas that can frame your subjects. Overhanging trees, walkways, stables/barn doors, archways, leading lines….. these are all key things to look out for, and more often than not, you will have access to plenty at your client’s yard.  Here are some examples for you…

Use natural props…

Often, owners who have not been photographed before will be quite anxious in front of the camera (unless they’re a professional model already!!) and this can often come across in photos. They usually feel much more comfortable leaning or sitting, than just standing, staring at you blankly!

Get owners to sit on, or lean up against props. Logs, gates, trees, chairs, walls, mounting blocks, sleepers… you get it!
