Jack Schatzberg...photographs and talks about horses

Questions and Answers


Hi Jack,

When taking in hand shots do you try to place a horse in the shade? I find that if I place a horse in the sun, it has dark shadows in certain areas where the horse's body shades the sun. Also some horses close down their eyes (squint). Black horses in the shade seem to come out dull though.

Thank you

Christina Emery


Dear Christina,

All of the problems you are having can be corrected by using flash while shooting out of doors. As a matter of fact, I personally use flash at all shooting sessions, whether in or out of doors. You have listed all the reasons for using flash, perfectly.

Let me know your response and the results if you decide to try fill flash.
