    Megan,
    I knew Macha Breeze, when he was in NC. That is the sweetest picture of your daughter and him.

    Hocus, thank you! That means a lot coming from you!

    Hi Jump, thanks! I'm actually not sure which pic you're talking about though LOL You copied the link which copied incompletely and they all look alike from that perspective But, regarding lighting, I always try to carry my camera around in good light

    Here are a few more of my favorite candids:

    Sorry - I lied! I had 3 favorite "candid" photo's ...

    This one of Faux Finish, at Devon 2007 with her Amateur handler. It was stinking hot, she was tired, and all she wanted to do was sleep, so I guess she thought she'd get a few minutes of shut eye while she was in the ring ...

    Thanks Reg! My son was supposed to be "handling" the foal to get her used to humans.
    When I stuck my head out of the barn door a bit later to see how it was going, that is what I saw. Fortunately, my camera was nearby. My son definitely has a way with horses.

    6#, those kittens are adorable!

    I think candids often require a bit of luck and just hauling the camera around a lot. Though I will go out hunting for a good shot when the lighting is especially nice on the farm.

    Many of my favorites are here:

    And a few of my favorite dog and cat candids.

    In the second to last one, my horse actually picked Phoebe up by her tail with his lips.

    cabt re - that one of the horse reaching down to grab kitty's tail is just the best shot!!!

    And I love those sunrise / sunset shots as well - they are just beautiful ...

    So it seems like the only "planning" you need to do to get fabulous candid shots, is to have your camera with you at all times, so that when you see something that is picture worthy, you can whip it out and shoot the picture! Running back to the barn or house to get it simply wont do at all ...

    A few candids taken at shows...

    This one was just following a heavy downpour, and my guess is everyone was feeling a bit sticky... This is a good example of the color saturation you can get in specific light which JB referred to earlier...

    Just before first class... this fella came strolling across the warmup ring...causing a bit of a stir... good mover though...huh?

    In my opinion, a horse is the animal to have. 1300 pounds of raw muscle, power, grace, and sweat between your legs - it's something you just can't get from a pet hamster.

    can't-re, those backlit shots are awesome! And I'm coming to steal that kitty - I'm hoarding calis and tortis

    Hocus, that jumper is simply amazing and that picture should be in the dictionary under "power", "scope", and "form"

    Thanks JB. I added a hunter sample as well. There are those moments when horses literally take your breath away with the power and grace they are capable of. I feel very priviledged to have the honor of travelling and being part of the talent that exists in this county, and believe me there is a bunch.

    Sadly only a small percentage of the very best photos ever end up seen. Show schedules, owners not present and so on are just a few reasons. I often think it is quite sad. They just end up in a file somewhere on someone's computer. Lili will now be offering her work on line, and I hope more of the best photos actually get to be appreciated. I remember a shot I took of Capone I in Ocala last year for Lili that was beyond amazing. What a great horse!

    Six#, I LOVE the shots, and the one of the foal in the grass!
    We're spending our money on horses and bourbon. The rest we're just wasting.

    What's great is that we've seen those moments and our brain recognizes them (since we took the mental snapshot). They bring back a flood of thoughts and emotion. I love this thread. I always enjoy getting to see these -- THANKS!

    The tortoise is great!


    I love Grandma holding the horse while daughter and grandson walk the course. Something about the black horse below really caught me.
