1. Use your tripod and switch off your camera/lens stabilizer!! A tripod will help prevent blur in your shots.
2. If you want to try and get the fastest shutter speeds in the early morning, then set your camera to Aperture Priority, the largest aperture you can use such as f2.8 and the highest ISO.
3. If it is dark, your camera may try to overexpose to lighten a dark scene. Use your exposure compensation to underexpose if this happens.
Please take note!!
1. Do not use your flash at any time. Do not use your camera's basic modes, such as Auto/Portrait/Night Portrait, because these will automatically use the flash.
2. Do not crouch near the horses.
3. Do not make sudden movements that may frighten the horses.
4. Do not walk in front of the horses.
5. Do not go into the training areas, or on the paths that they use.
Dress warmly as it will be very cold! Bring some coffee and rusks to keep the cold at bay. We will go and have breakfast when our memory cards are full.
For some inspiration, go to Mark Tripp's website and
get some ideas for the outing. It is worth a look.
See you at 5:30AM, Saturday 23 June 2012!
