Winter Wonderland Equine Photography with Rosi
With the possibility of snow fall today, I excitedly charged my camera in hope for some beautiful Snow filled photos of my horses.
2020 and the start of 2021 being in lockdown on and off I have unfortunately missed all of the winter time photography shoots I would normally do…
So please meet my lovely girl Rosi
You’ll probably already know I have my own specialist Horse Photography site so I’m working with these incredible animals every week, week after week, year after year, and owning 3 myself I am very fortunate to offer bespoke Equine photography, and sometimes photographing my own.
Rosi is my lovely 22 year old Welsh section A, I purchased her last year for my young daughter she is the most amazing little pony, who would stand all day and be brushed and pampered and looks after my little girl whilst she is on board. Truly the 1 in a million pony.
Equine Photography in the Snow
Like any day photographing children, animals and horses you have to put safety first, as a client the safety of you and your horse, pet or child is paramount, but snow and ice conditions we have to be so much more vigilant. I would always recommend coating your horses hooves and frog in a good hoof oil this minimises the snow compacting and creating your horse to become unsteady. If you have a clipped horse…. it’s always nice to have some photos with a smart or your favourite rug, then during the session it can be placed on and off the horse so they don’t become cold between positions or moving location around the yard, also a little tip don’t forget a brush those forelocks in the snow can become damp and sometimes just need to corrected.
Capturing your horses photograph
Whilst some of us may have a little more time during the lock down, when you are taking photos of your horse think about a few things… the background have a look at where you have stood the horse and what is in the background of your photo you can capture a fabulous photo of your equine but then look back and you have a tree growing out in-between their ears, a horses ears and the position it is standing can make or break a photo Selfies… I just think you should take as many as possible looking all wrapped up together in the snow
