Training Workouts- Horse- Photography

I decided to go back out to Keeneland this morning and photograph the workouts.  The photo’s that I had taken earlier in the week where sharp, but didn’t show the movement of the horse. I went back this time looking for shots that would better show the  movement and speed of the horses.  I settled on using a very slow shutter speed of 1/30 sec and panned with the focus on the rider, which is the one thing that remains fairly still. The number of keepers with this technique is very low, maybe only 1 in 10-12, but can get you unusual results.

Early morning workout.
