2009 Bay Thoroughbred gelding, 16hh.
Karanos (AP Indy - Bless) is a stunning young horse who needs some extra time off following a non-displaced condylar fracture of the left hind. His rehabilitation is going smoothly and he is expected to be sound for a new career. Due to the nature of the injury, his vet has recommended that he NOT be considered for jumping. Instead, he's seeking someone interested in dressage, trail, pleasure classes and/or driving.

In my latest push to clean out my hoard of used tack and riding apparel, I decided to use the opportunity to practice my e-commerce and catalog marketing skills by utilizing my website, kcorneliusimagesandmarketing.com.
I wanted the page to be visually appealing as well as being easy-to-shop and I want visitors to have a great experience. On the back-end I have utilized PayPal as a shopping cart tool, and I have even created "Sold Out" and "Thank You" landing pages.
On the front-end I have tried to take and use good, clear photographs that show the items as honestly as possible. Most of the items photograph just fine laying flat on a clean surface. But some items, like bridles and other horse equipment simply look better on a horse; and so yesterday I subjected one of my horses to a brief modeling assignment.
On the bright side of the session, Polo (my horse) was a champ. He stood quietly while a young lady from the barn held a lead, showing off a colorful racing headstall set and his former set of protective boots. Other good things from the session: Polo was clean, the tack was clean and fitted properly and I did think to stand him up against the plain backdrop of the indoor arena.
It wasn't until I got home and began looking at the photos that I realized I wasn't looking with both of my eyes when I began shooting. I have some lovely pictures that are unusable due to things such as twisted reins and/or my angle, which captured other things in the background that are distracting to the eye. Then there are the fabulous faces made by Polo - probably his attempt to tell me I was "doing it wrong." Fortunately this was my personal photo shoot and one that I could re-do as necessary. Had it been for a client, I might not be so lucky.
Lessons learned: Slow down. Keep both eyes open. Review the shot or shots in the camera's viewing screen before moving on to the next set. Enjoy the outtakes!
I enjoy the daily inspiration provided by nature, people and pets.
