Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken on a Photo Tour that I host in the South of Iceland. Each year I take a small group to stay at a horse farm where we immerse ourselves in the culture. From our accommodations we see the horses right outside our window and wake in the morning to walk out in the fields to photograph mares and foals. The light is incredible so you can photograph almost a full 24 hours if you choose to!
Time
At the horse farm we stay at they move the horses from the pasture to the barn twice daily to take clients out on rides. So this was taken about 2PM in the afternoon...the light is almost always good in Iceland in June or anytime of the year!
Lighting
It's Iceland, the land of forever light!
Equipment
Nikon D4 80-400mm Lens handheld
Inspiration
I am an Equine Photographer so horses of any kind inspire me. The Icelandic Horse is iconic and when you can photograph them in their homeland even more so. I always look for something unusual and the foursome was very striking to me.
Editing
This was a crop out of a larger picture of the horses running by us, I was drawn to the four horses running side by side. Minor adjustments in Adobe Camera Raw and NIK Silver Efex for the B&W conversion.
In my camera bag
I always carry two cameras my Nikon D4 and the D810. The lenses that I use range from the 14-24mm to the 600mm lens. I've started using the Nikon D7200 for some video work as well.
Feedback
Always be on the look out when you see a herd of horses for interaction and small groups....one horse is okay but 2, 3 or more is always better. Always shoot them from the front or side, rarely running away from you. Here it's the repeating pattern that works so well. A longer lens is better too, that's why the 70-200mm lens is my go to lens when shooting horses but in Iceland and other places you may need even more focal length. Watch for distortion when shooting horses with anything wider.
