Horse Show - Dressage Show at PLP

For those who’ve never shot moving targets, this is the ideal one to try. It’s a little slower and the ‘patterns’ that are being ridden are clearly defined, so it’s possible to predict where and when the horse/rider pair will do specific things - allowing the photographer to be ready in advance to capture that perfect moment. I’ll work with you to figure out the best camera settings and, hopefully, the weather will cooperate so we can shoot at the outside ring where the light is better. That said, be prepared to shoot in the indoor arena if necessary where the light is (to put it politely) ghastly.
