Top 3 Lightroom Presets for Horse Photography

When we are not busy taking photographs, writing ebooks, making lightroom presets etc.. we spend time training and bringing on our horses to a very high level.  

Although we don’t often sell horses, we recently sold two of ours, and then went and found two beautiful youngsters, they are both palomino (gold creamy colour) and are very photogenic! 

After a long drive there and back, they finally arrived here on Friday!

Their name are Ace of Heart (1yrs old) and Ace of Diamonds (2yrs old) 

I only have two weeks left of my 2nd 365 project and I am excited to have them both in this project!

Here is the photograph I chose of them for one of my 365 days:


Two Palomino Horses - Day 342/365

I took this photograph just after 6PM, I knew the light would be soft and would create lovely bokeh through the trees (see top corner on the right).

A few people asked how I got the “pretty rainbow flare”, the answer is I got it by I shooting into the sun (but not directly otherwise the photograph would be too hazy) using the 85 1.2 lens. the rainbow has never appeared for me with an aperture narrower than 1.2

If you haven’t got a 1.2 lens, don’t worry! You can still get gorgeous flares with a 2.0/2.8 apeture which we show how to get in our Photography Tips eBook:


Here is a self-portrait I took with Ace of Diamonds, notice the diamond shape star on his face, isn’t he beautiful?

I got some lovely feedback on this photograph – saying they loved the colours etc, so I thought I would show you the before and after:-


Processed with Whipped Cream Lightroom Preset:-

I used this preset because it enhanced the colours so the photograph looks more ailve and exciting.
