Tuesday -- let the madness begin !

Tuesday started out with a little bit of introductions... maybe a bit of marking territory.
Some folks were more experienced than I.
'Tis fine.
I came to learn.
And I did.

5 participants.
5 ladies wanting to learn, to get THE shot, to find that sweet picture that will remind them.

At the time, I didn't realize that I came to be pushed out of my comfort zone.
But I did.
And I was.

Day 1 started at the barn with Wendy's horses.
I fell in love with Ollie.
Had I been able to pack him up and bring him home, Ollie would now be living in NJ.

We worked on lighting.
We worked on stance.
Detail.
Composition.

The additional plan was to have someone come out and work their horse over the jumps, but due to the extremes in weather -- Kentucky has had incredible amounts of rain lately -- it just was not safe for the young lady to work her horse over the jumps.

Matt loaned me a 70-200 f2.8 lens
Must.
HAVE.
This.
Lens.

OMG he created a monster.
