When Jen told me the Henry Ford Museum was free on Martin Luther King Day I knew we had to go. She had her friend with her so I knew I’d be able to take some pictures no problem. When the time came to leave we piled in the car with Elon and Jen’s friend Audrey. Every. Single. Spot. Was full.
We circled around all the way towards the back, only to see a brown and white horse up against the fence. I pulled a U-turn and parked to the side of the road. These two horses were beautiful, and I wouldn’t have found them if there were any parking available!
I decided to shoot the entire day with nothing but my Sony A7rii and the fully manual Laowa 2:1 60mm f/2.8 macro lens. These horses were my first shots using this lens. It took me awhile to get used to the manual focus, but in the end, I found the settings that worked for me.
Heading into the museum, I knew right away my plans for photographing details wasn’t going to happen. There were people everywhere! It made for the experience so I quickly changed gears and ended up testing out how long I could hold my camera for sharp shots with motion blur, to show the movement.
