Last month, I got this “job” of photographing a friend, who is a highly experienced horseman, a saddle maker and a martial arts expert among other things he’s good at. He’s planning to make a website for his art and needed me to take some shots.
I right away said yes to this rare opportunity. How else would I be able to have a glimpse of this beautiful art. So in the next few days, I will share some of my shots in this blog.
All are shot with Canon 50D, Canon EF 50mm f1.8 II
From distance, I watched how this man rode his horse. Living in Jakarta, it’s quite unusual to see people ride western. So for me personally, it was quite a show.
Later on as we chatted, I found out that this very lively Australian guy, whose first job when he was young was to break horses, now makes saddles as a hobby! Beautiful saddles with intricate design. I wish I can see his collections and take pictures of all.
