Went to the N P S 23 Show on Sunday I had a lovely time taking pictures for the fun of it, the show was really well supported and run very well so well done to the club.
We never entered any of our horses as both Jen & Lu had work and I'm too lazy to get a horse ready to show, although only one of our Part-Breds is looking in show condition at this moment in time and thats Frog who has just started to be ridden.
Anyway if you would like to buy images from the show then go to http://wightphotography.ifp3.com/

Don't you just love computers..... I do as they make my images look the best, as you can see a plain snap can be made to look that little bit extra and make the most of the image.
All that been done is a bit of spot and mole removal, blurring of the background and running the image through Lightroom with a few image processing actions to get this B/W with brown high lights portrait picture. OH and I also slightly squashed his face top to bottom to give it a more square as opposed to long look ( its called artistic license honest ).
Never trust a picture of mine :-) ha, ha, we can do body enhancements & reductions much cheaper than Harley Street !
I have not taken many pictures of Carriage Driving so of I went to Lake Farm wrapped up in about three fleeces and my shooting coat to take pictures of these mad people.
It was actually very nice watching the ponies react to voice commands as to when to turn and such stuff, I always thought that you cracked um with a great big whip and shouted "yee haa"
................... OK too many John Wayne films :-) ............
The little pony in the 3rd image is for sale don't know how much but if your interested get it touch and I will find out for you.
Lots more pictures at www.wightphotography.com

I had the chance to use a studio on Wednesday night so I managed to persuade my daughter Lucinda and Sam one of our livery's to model for me, as you can see they turned out surprisingly well Considering I have never done this type of photography.
I do have to give a massive thank you to a friend who helped with the composition so thanks Ian.

I had a morning taking images at Lake Farm today at an Isle of Wight Riding Club event, it was a very low key show being Mothers Day but some very nice horses were competing as you can see.
More images at http://www.wightphotography.com/ the quality of these is not the best as I grabbed them from my web site and jpg loss has affected them.
Ohh no someone :-) did not like the look of the old nag that I posted even though it was hard to see it never mind read the header of my Blog ha,ha
