Wild White Horses of the Camargue in monochrome

Portrait of fighting stallions typical of the type of image that may be captured during the NaturesLens Wild White Horses of the Camargue Photography Holiday

Earlier this year, I wrote a series of blog posts about the Wild White Horses of the Camargue. I will be heading out to the Camargue on Friday to lead our 2018 trip & thought it would be nice to showcase how these majestic steeds look in monochrome.

We always try to offer something a little bit different from other operators & in this case; we include a unique portrait session. This is an opportunity to photograph a white & a black stallion in a studio-like environment with both natural & studio lighting.

Always remember that not all light, especially natural light, is created equal in photography. If you take shots when the sun is at its brightest, the excessive lighting will obscure detail & wash out your image. You are more likely to achieve stunning shots in the early morning, late afternoon & on overcast days.
Black & white photos can deliver a strong image that would otherwise look weak & average in colour. If you remove the colour, you can emphasise qualities like shadow, light, texture, & pattern.
I hope you have enjoyed my series of blog posts on the Wild White Horses of the Camargue. I will try & post up an image on Facebook & Instagram every day while I am in the Camargue. We are taking booking for 2019 already so if my blog posts have inspired you, why not join us next year? Once you have visited this place, the experience will be etched in your memory forever.
