Behind The Lens

Location
This photograph was taken in Iceland during a horse roundup in the fall.
Time
It was taken mid afternoon.
Lighting
It was normal afternoon lighting and the sun was facing the horses.
Equipment
A Nikon F3HP and a Nikon 35mm f/2 lens. Loved the camera, as it was one of the few cameras you could see the entire frame while wearing glasses.
Inspiration
Being a horse owner at the time and a horse lover, I was very excited to be in Iceland photographing horses. This photograph was taken during a press trip to Iceland and one one the best days was the horse roundup. I was able to get up on a fence to get this view of the horses. It was very exciting to see all the horses being rounded up. I was trying to get just the horses without the people sorting them out and this was my favorite of all the photographs from my trip to Iceland.
Editing
The 35mm negative was scanned and processed in photoshop.
In my camera bag
This photograph was taken before autofocus cameras. I had two Nikon F3HP cameras and four Nikon lenses: 35mm f/2, 105mm f.2.5, 180mm f/2.8 and a 300mm f/4.5.
Feedback
Learn about the subject you are photographing. At the time I was photographing horses, I was also riding my horse. You should love the subject you are photographing. Master your equipment. Photographing a subject like horses, is like photographing any sporting event. You need to learn what shutter speed will stop the action of horses trotting, cantering and jumping over fences. Also practice, to get good at capturing the action of horses. Just have fun!
