Trying to turn a horse in water
Background - we were shooting on the trails at the park when this lovely young lady and her horse come down the trail. She stopped to chat, let one of the models on her horse, I snapped a few photos and out of the blue asked for her contact info - given that I'm extremely shy and innocent this was very unusual for me.
I contacted Sarah for a separate shoot and she brought Buttercup with her. We then had an excellent shoot and Heather had a chance to ride Buttercup. This was such a fun shoot. Toward the end we went close to the river to get some water shots. Sarah took Buttercup into the river and started playing around. Next thing we knew, Sarah fell in the river. It was freezing but after she lost all feeling she said it wasn't bad, so we had our first water shoot of the season. Not a bad adventure at all!
I'm trying new editing techniques so there is a variety of looks in the photos. It's still a learning process.
I took these photos at the end of April 2020.
