yearling Trakehner horses showing their stuff; Vermont, USA
Technical data: Photo taken with a Nikon SLR film camera and Nikkor
180mm f2.8 lens; hand held, available light. Approximate exposure
1/1000 second at f8 - Kodak Tri-X black & white film, processed
normally. No lens filters were used.
Film was scanned using a Nikon
Coolscan series film scanner. Photo file was routinely optimized using
Photoshop; levels and curves, sharpening, cropping and dust spot
removal using clone tool. I use a Mac for all photo processing.
Comments: Usually I set up a tripod whenever possible to avoid
camera shake but these young frisky Trakehners had me hopping. So I
hand-held the camera and used a high shutter speed instead. Exposure
was slightly increased to bring out detail in the darker horse. A side
benefit of the increased exposure was the soft silvery tones of the
grass and tree foliage.
