An oldie, and off-season


NEX5 + Summaron 35/2.8

I'm glad I didn't bin the shot at the time, because I remember I didn't like the flare then, but now I actually like it
Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here

A tip, don't use the same setting for horses on the run as for BIF, that is, exposure at the AF-spot point, leds to a lot of editing afterwards ;-)

Thanks m8, and I'm not harsh, just to try to learn "horses" :-)

Actually, at one of my favorite places looking for birds and insects there is an old place where they have horses and nice barns and I was shooting (tried to) barn swallows in one of them after I got allowance from a girl working there, and later I sat down and talked to her, and took a few shoots of her.

Meet Anna Freskgard. (wt., last a should be an a with a small ring above it but the stupid forum changes it to an a???)

Next day I got an invitation to this event from her on FB.
Later I got to know she is quite famous in terrain running with jumps etc with horses (hmmm, I don't even know what it's called in proper Swedish :-)) but she had been injured and was recovering since quite long a time now and was going to get back just there at an easy try. ...and I missed her run as I was dividing with some security persons about where I would like to stand, and when they finally gave in she just passed us :-(

At least I'm a name dropper now

In the two albums you shared there were more than a few very good pictures Lars! Don't be too harsh on yourself.
Just curious, were relatives of you participating, or were you a just an interested, but "total stranger"?

I did a quick scan of all the images, and there are a very few where the horses stretches out, I think they where hold back, short tracks between jumps in quite small arena.
The kids did a lot faster runs, fewer and not so high jumps... and fearless :-) so a few of those are better... whenever I get there :-)

Thanks a lot for some great tips, much appreciated!
Don't know much at about this at all, as a total novice I shot everything :-)
You are actually the first to say anything and so with tips as well, will try to remember those

Well, Sony has four AF modes, the old subject Tracking AF, The face and Eye-AF, the new animal Eye-AF and the latest Butt-AF


All those butts indeed Lars, although the butt-AF seems to work extremely well in continuous mode .
In general the more stretched poses are much better appreciated (eg. ...2940 and ...2949 from the first album). Usually landings are less flattering (although I understand you are presenting a sequel of the jump) and the ones where the horse is more wrapped up to a compact block (e.g. ...3654) would normally fall of IMHO.

3259 is not flattering, but a well captured moment

Some very good shots in the albums, but, to be honest, probably also some that you would not have kept if it wasn't your first horse event ;-)
(those where the horses have a less flattering pose). Nevertheless a joy to watch. The details of the 7Riii are amazing.

Thanks.
Yea probably but I keep a lot more than I usually do for the contenders so they can choose for themself what to download :-)

The "less flattering pose", can you tell me a few so I know what to lookout for? :-)

Spent four days from June 6, 2019 to June 9, 2019 at the horse shows/cmpetitions at Strömsholms Castle in Sweden.
It was great and first time ever for me at such event/competitions.
I wasn’t allowed into the arenas as the press-teams where so it was hard to get the right spots and angles.
About 9550 shots, phew…

Day One is ready, started on day Two…

Two samples:
7R303179 by Lars Hernborg, on Flickr

7R304784 by Lars Hernborg, on Flickr

Album day 1
Album day 2:

Warning! Lots of images and a lot lot more to come…

Gear mostly used: a7RIII /w 135/1.8 100-400 GM, last day I tried out with the 70-200 f4 but it can’t keep up sadly enough as I needed go down to around 70mm many times.
Some movies with my iPhone and the Vuze XR 2d/3D camera. Movies are in Day one, and last in that album, only short ones, mostly a few minutes.

I've never heard from that tradition before but your pictures look stunning! I think I have to visit this event too, next chance is in June as I have seen.

TFS!
