Showing and Working
An Ongoing Online Class with Terri Cage
Join Terri Cage to explore the world of photographing Western Stock horses. In this class we will discuss techniques critical to capturing good images of western pleasure horses, stock horses at work, ranch classes, trail horses and western horsemanship as well as related disciplines.
This class will be presented through a private Facebook Group. It includes a 90-minute video that shows proper movement photos with examples, both good and bad. You will be able to test your skills on several images that highlight movement at different moments. Terri’s perspective comes from what she has learned by horse judging and from photographing a vast variety of horses and western events over her career. Understanding proper movement and timing is key to capturing the best frame.
The class’s primary focus is on Western Pleasure because it demonstrates the fundamentals for photographing most other classes. Terri will also cover how to capture optimal movement and action during ranch work. This skill will help you develop better photographic skills when attending western events.
Additional materials to help students understand the process of creating consistent usable images will be provided through the Facebook Group. Students are encouraged to post images for critique and questions and discussion are welcomed.
