Catching a horse at exactly the right moment, in precisely the right environment, is a challenge, but Horse Photography offers the answers. Walker covers technical details such as camera and lens selection, background and lighting, and the book offers more: Walker’s own perspective as a horsewoman. Her explanation of the horse’s gaits, for example, will open every photographer’s eyes to the most beautiful moments of a horse in motion, and yield finer, more powerful results. Readers will also benefit from Walker’s insights into “horse psychology” and how the horse as a prey animal reacts to equipment, location, even separation from the herd. Outstanding example images by Walker offer inspiration while the clear text explains the technical details; together they create a resource any amateur photographer will come to rely on.
