The past few weekends have seen me semi-permanently attached to my trusty camera. In addition to the action photography of the horse events at the Kentucky Horse Park and Keeneland, I took the time to retake some product photos.
A few friends and I have been trying to sell off unused horse equipment and rider apparel over the last several months. In early summer I took photos of everything, using as clear a background as possible so that the viewer's eye immediately caught the item. I then created a public online album using one of the free sources and promptly advertised the album on social media sites, including equestrian forums.
There are a few items remaining and I felt they might benefit from an updated photo. I recruited one of my horses and borrowed a pony to show these products in use. My goal was to convey the items with a proper fit through proper adjustment of straps and buckles, and also to stand the horse and pony against as clear a background as possible. In the case of smaller items, such as protective boots, I focused on the legs and boots themselves.
Check out the before and after shots and let me know what you think.
I enjoy the daily inspiration provided by nature, people and pets.
