I love your website, but I have a question for you. I am going to
be taking a passport photo of a dressage horse this spring/summer, and
want it to be good. My question is: WHat kind of background is best?
The mare is a dark bay Dutch Warmblood, but I'm wondering also for steel
grey, fleabitten grey, bright chestnut, etc. Would a woodsy
background, field, sky, etc be best? She will be wearing a halter only.
Thanks in advance
In photographing a horse for identification purposes, the less
background the better. No background is the very best.
Remember that the horse should be shown from all four sides, straight
on. Keep your camera at the level of his heart, and shoot from
a right angle to the animal and have him standing in a normal
position, not stretched and make sure that all his markings show.
