“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”
— Elliott Erwitt

This image has been taken at the coastline of the National Park Wadden Sea.

Busy week this week. Digging my way further into Equine Photography. Lesson learnt: Gear matters, but… to start in this area of photography it doesn’t have to be top of the list. I bought the cheapest “training” lens ever. The Fujinon XC 50-230 consumer zoom. It even comes with image stabilization. It has a price tag of 249 €. When it comes to low light conditions I have to increase the ISO beyond 800 / 1600. This is not ideal. But if the sun shines and the light is OK it delivers quite good results. At least for a start. Image 1,3 and 4 are unedited files, image 2 has been edited to eliminate some dirt spots in the face. Enjoy the weekend.  Forecast of sunshine on Sunday in my area. 🙂
