Fiers a Cheval - part 2

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 25 March 2014 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

A joy to see and experience. However, this proved to be a difficult shoot. The method I had in mind did not work on the night. I was using a tripod and a flash attachment. At first, the resulting exposures were not looking good. Without losing too much time, I managed to rework my camera settings and get to work.

I would have liked to stay with one camera setting. In practice, I needed to change settings on the fly - in response to how the light was changing and how near or far the horses were moving.

These puppeteers and their horses moved in a graceful dance synchronized with each other and a music sound track.

This is wonderful Stephen! These nighttime shoots where you constantly have to rework your settings are difficult but rewarding when you get a shot like this! Well done! ;-)

I think it turned out beautifully! The luminous light is just gorgeous. I am wondering how the puppeteers could see where they were going. A gorgeous image!

Brilliant image that would deserve a spotlight, not just because it has horses in it, which is one of the criterions, but because it is magical !
