Yeah, you read that right. I did not photograph myself, but I had my buddy Claude drive over to the stables and kindly do a little photoshoot of Joli and I with his recently aquired A77 II and Sigma 50-150/2.8 HSM (ok, I’ll admit I was somewhat instrumental in him getting both)
Initially, Claude was supposed to document our second coaching session, but I got confused with dates, and he missed it. Which is a real pity, because we had an amazing session with a real breakthrough, and I would truly have loved to have pictures of our progress
My sole issue with the whole session was to isolate shots where we both had a good attitude. But technically speaking, the images were extremely easy to work with. Claude and his 77II had done a great job
Mainly the reasons for a very average performance today was my lack of well timed releases, and a young girl riding her big and spooky mare joining us in the arena. Joli isn’t advanced enough in his work so far to be able to handle it… Neither am I, I think. Hopefully tomorrow at lunch time we’ll have the barn to ourselves and will be able to do a bit better. Fingers crossed.
