All Bloggers Are Great Photographers…

It seems that way at least, especially if you look at many of the successful blogs. It also seems many of their friends are fabulous photographers as well. I see the lovely photos up on many blogs and think to myself, “I can make this happen.” Well, folks, I am not a particularly spectacular photographer. I get some pictures and they look O.K. but they surely aren’t fantastic. The other night, I went to the barn with my camera strapped around my neck prepared to take some awesome pictures of the  new polo wraps I’d made in action. I got a few good shots of Tango standing in the cross ties but I can’t really take a photo of myself riding…so, I enlisted the help of my mother. She may be one of the world’s worst photographers even when she can figure out the camera. It did not help that on that night, Tango and I were being far from photogenic.  Since, I can’t afford to hire a professional photographer to follow me around and make me look good, you will just have to enjoy and chuckle at what I end up with. Please keep in mind; these are still the best pictures of many! Also, check out the cool things I’ve been making! Painted Pattern Horse Shoes and Polo Wraps with custom logos!

The painted pattern on these horse shoes make them more fun than just a solid color!

Tango takes modeling very seriously…as you can see.

Once we got Tango to put her ears up the window to snap a picture was milliseconds. Inevitably, the rush resulted in a blurry picture.

Out of all the pictures this is the only one that isn’t blurry and both Tango and I are somewhat paying attention.

I thought getting out of the saddle and grabbing a handful of grass would make pictures easier. Tango just wanted the grass but not in exchange for nice pictures. We gave up after this.
A fantastic picture of my 'photographer' while I was explaining how the camera worked. Her shirt says, "It's my job to be difficult" (It's the truth).

    1. For the horse shoes, I just used spray paint from around the house. And the logos on the polo wraps were painted on with Sharpie Oil Based Paint Pens. Both sets have been washed multiple times and the paint has stuck!
