As part of a series of imagery I hope to continue with, this piece emphasizes the beauty of those incredible eyes of the horse. I am actually focusing on the reflection of the white fence that you can see in the eye. The eyes of this horse are so perfect – deep, black, and mysterious. The eye lashes are almost decorative. I used a sharp, fast lens often used for people photography to allow a shallow focus on just the eye and the lashes – a Canon EF 135mm f2.0 L. It is a tricky lens to use as the depth of field is so shallow that if my focus is off even a little, or the horse moves, the image is lost.

  1. I am quite impressed that the reflected fence is perfectly visible in the horse’s eye…but the photographer is not!
