My wife attended a training session where she boards her horse. The trainer did a demo at the beginning of the session. I snapped several shots, a few of which I am sharing here.

It was a challenging scene and I'm sure I could have done better but after a couple of days, they have grown on me.

Most were taken with my Olympus E-M1 II and the 12-40 2.8 lens so I could get as much light as possible on that overcast morning. I started out in aperture priority with auto-ISO and a min shutter of 1/100. I realized that was too slow and switched to shutter priority with a speed of 1/250. That improved things quite a bit but in hindsight, I might have gone to 1/500 to be safe.

I processed in Luminar and I may have overdone the vignetting on some but it seemed like a good idea at the time. In any case, I had fun and the participants loved the pictures I took. I may actually get paid by the trainer to shoot the entire training session the next time he comes out. I'm not really looking to go pro but it does stroke the photographer's ego. :)
