OUR PRO’S ver­dict

NPhoto - - The Apprentice -

John’s shot of the day is per­fect. I don’t think I could have shot it bet­ter my­self. The black back­ground inside the sta­ble pro­duces a per­fect light­ing con­trast, and it’s enough of a visual frame on its own not to need the wooden frame­work of the sta­ble door – you could crop this shot ei­ther way, in fact. The main thing is to cap­ture the spe­cial in­ter­ac­tion be­tween the horse and the rider, and John has done that per­fectly. It means pay­ing at­ten­tion to the de­tails, un­der­stand­ing horse psy­chol­ogy, and tak­ing plenty of shots – and John has cracked it with this one.
