The vignette and light combination is very dramatic and compelling. I am drawn to this image. It only gets better the longer I look at it. Congratulations on your award win in the Art of Vignette. 👏👏

Behind The Lens

Location
the photo was taken in the Camargue ( France ) during a popular demonstration where the famous horses and riders of the region lead the bulls into the City Arena for the Corrida
Time
Mid morning
Lighting
Very strong sun rising from the sea which created a grazing light at 45 degrees
Equipment
t's a reportage photography, so light equipment: Fujifilm XT3 camera, 18/135 lens and nothing else
Inspiration
From this demonstration I expected the horses to advance at a trot or gallop, thus raising clouds of sand which would have been very interesting, unfortunately they advanced at a walk and therefore no spectacular effects, I tried to form a compact group that gave the idea of a march in attack on something
Editing
In addition to the normal Raw development post production, I thought of isolating what seemed most interesting to me, that is the horse grip, excluding as much as possible any disturbing element, and therefore I thought of creating a strong vignetting
In my camera bag
My normal equipment consists of the Fujifilm XT3 camera, an 18/135 all-round lens, a 35mm fixed lens, a 10/24mm wide angle, and a telephoto, 70/200mm. In addition of course to spare batteries and spare memory cards
Feedback
It is true that post-production is done later but it is necessary to plan the result in one's mind already at the time of shooting
