Another shot of Boo. I took this as a class assignment for a Basic Equine photograpy course. Do you think I should have cropped out the barn door? Because the background was so dark I thought leaving it in gave it a bit of context...not sure if it's to distracting...
I've finished my course and am waiting for the final critiques. I'm not going to take another class for awhile. I am just going to practice the things I've learned for the rest of the summer. I'm also working through a workbook for photoshop. I bought myself photoshop CS5 and there is a lot for me to learn there. The workbook will help me get familiar with the basic stuff. I need to have that down before September because I am going to go to Photoshop World in Las Vegas. Hoping that sitting through the seminars there will really help me elevate my images to another level.
I have been riding both horses this week. I noticed that my stirrup leathers were worn, so I replaced them yesterday. Now I am squeaking with every stride. I had visions of the leather breaking through at the most inopportune time! Tomorrow is Bay's day to be ridden. I have to admit that I get butterflies thinking about it. Guess that's the sign that I am pushing myself out of my comfort zone. I can only hope I'll end up being a better rider for it.
