How to Photograph your Horse

 

  1. Wash and groom your horse.

  2. Remove rugs and blankets.  Buyers don’t have x-ray vision!

  3. Pick a nice location without any clutter in the background that will distract from your horse. 
    Buyers want to see the horse has clean legs and stands well without any obvious conformation issues. A busy background will detract from your horse and can create optical illusions that make your horse look undesirable.

  4. Get a friend to help make sure your horses’ ears are forward and they are looking alert but not spooked in the photo. Have them stand in front of your horse holding a carrot or feed bucket to get their attention. 

  5. If your horse is not easily spooked your friend can wave a bag, make silly noises or anything else that will make your horse look interested and alert.

  6. Position the horse in either full shade or full sun – not dappled light.

  7. Take the photo with the sun directly behind your back and parallel to the horse to avoid strong shadows that will alter how your horse looks in the photos.

  1. Turn the phone sideways. Landscape orientation is much better for horse photos (and videos).

  2. Keep the camera at same level as the horse’s shoulder – kneel for minis and small ponies.

  3. Fill the frame with the horse – your horse is the star, so make it a photo of your horse rather than a photo of a landscape with a horse in it.

  4.  Avoid awkward angles such as having the head closest to the camera and the body furthest away. The distorted photo might be funny, but they really don’t help a prospective buyer decide to bid on your horse.

  5. Conformation shots standing facing the horses’ shoulder or girth with horse parallel to phone/camera, standing square
