That’s all we did today. There was only one rider in the arena, and previously when I coached Marla it was out of the question to make pictures as I was supervising closely her loping session (which went pretty well). So Gwen and Pagaré’s dressage schooling session was pretty much all I caught
Pagaré is the gorgeous Spanish Purebred who tossed me out a couple of months back
Since his owners was having some issues as well, Gwen got appointment to gentle him
She’s been at it for about three weeks, and he’s progressed quite a bit already
I had packed the 50-150, and though when focus is perfectly nailed, it’s beautifully sharp, I got most not *quite* perfectly focused shots
Pagaré still has some unexpected behaviors, such as this (he was loping quietly when something scared him, and he set off much faster)
Tomorrow is the teens/adult schooling session, so I’ll have much more varied subjects. I’ll be packing the Nikkor 70-300VR as well, to compare
I played with the burst mode a little, and it works just fine. I had it set a 4 frames per second, I the fact people claim they need 8 or 10, or heaven forbid, 12, boggles my mind. Already at 4 I feel most shots are redundant…
He sure is a very handsome horse !
Metering wise, the D7000 did great, I was very comfortable trusting its meter
I hope the camera will get a better workout tomorrow
ISO3200. Clean !
Stay tuned !
