Behind The Lens

Location

The photo was taken in Zagreb Hippodrome, during the race.

Time

Summertime, middle of the day.

Lighting

It was a hot, dry day so the dust was a problem for the riders. For me, it was great because the light was showing the dust nicely.

Equipment

CANON EOS 300D, EF 70-300, handheld.

Inspiration

I enjoy the races and love horses.

Editing

Converted to B&W, increased the contrast a bit.

In my camera bag

Camera, EF 100 macro, EF 70-300, EFS 10-22, EF 50, mini tripod.

Feedback

The key for this one is point of view. I took this shot as they were coming out of the corner and coming straight at me. Long lens is a must.
