Posted: May 21, 2012 in Indiana, Nikon D40

Sometimes you just get the lighting the way you want it the first time. Don’t get me wrong, HDR is awesome, but sometimes, you just get what you want in a single shot and no amount of fiddling with light levels is going to make it any better. That’s kind of where I was at with this shot.

The stable at Turkey Run Inn & State Park, in Indiana was the location for this shot. I was using a 200mm zoom lens, and trying to get in as close as I could through the fence. I ran around both sides of the fence taking pictures, but found the light to be the best from this angle. It was a little cloudy so it would alternate from shade to bursts of light rays that would pick up everything floating in the air. Then it was just a matter of getting the horse to pose (a little easier said than done). This shot turned out great though, as the horse was in the perfect location and decided to swish his tail all at the same time.
