Show Jumping at Rebecca Farm – Part II

My DSLR has several automatic modes. While I prefer to shoot in manual for uh, near everything now, finding the right balance of shutter speed, aperture, ISO levels and so on is challenging for me, especially when I’m out of my “studio” and faced with subjects that do not stay still.

Part of me thinks it’s “cheating” to use these modes, while another part of me is grateful for it, as it means I get to spend less time thinking and more time just shooting. I have so much to learn though.

I really liked playing with continuous shooting, and the majority of the photos I got at Rebecca Farm are sequences like this one:

RF_023

RF_024

RF_025

Some turned out a lot better than others, but like I said, I still have lots to learn. 🙂

RF_026

Here’s another grey I loved and got a ton of photos of:

RF_027

RF_028

RF_029

RF_030

RF_031

The remaining horses were part of the Jr. Open novice divisions, instead of Sr. 🙂

RF_032

RF_033

RF_034

Love the blingy browband!

Bit of a crooked jump here, hehe. 🙂

RF_038

RF_039

This one looks to have a slight Roman nose?

RF_040

RF_041

RF_042

RF_043

Most of the competitors wore black coats, so this girl really stood out in her bright blue. Goes well with the chestnut, I think. 🙂
