Current Mini-Hiatus

College is starting up in a few weeks (Aug. 18th!) and I’ve been incredibly busy with work. I haven’t been able to make it down to Del Mar for any of the Blenheim shows; maybe on a day off or I’ll just have to wait for the fall season. Sorry I’ve been so inactive guys, I’ll see if I can upload some old edits. Thanks for sticking in there with me!

Hey guys!

Sorry it’s been about a month since I’ve posted anything - I’ve been swamped with school and work. I’ll be getting new pictures soon in a few weeks of all the Blenheim shows, plus I’m graduating in 3 days so I will be free besides work. Hopefully I’ll get some new pictures up within a week or two! 

You all are seriously the best. Much love.

hi, i've posted a few of your pictures on instagram but i haven't removed the watermark and i was wondering if that's okay? i can take them down if you want.

If you want to post my photography on Instagram, please either give me credit in the caption or do not use them at all. Lately more of my pictures have been popping up with no credit - if you give credit, I am okay with that. Just tag @martinamirandaphotography. Thanks.

Do you ride if so where and with who?

Yes I do! I ride with Bridges Equestrian down in San Juan Capistrano!

I am new to photography and I am just wondering if you could give me time on action shots like how to time the jumping ones and capturing it/ the Action shot

No problem! So, what I normally do (and any photographer will tell you this) is that I pan when I’m following a moving subject. Panning is when you move the camera the direction of the moving subject, that way you have less of a risk of having the image blurred. Also, for jumping pictures, you just need to practice! It took me quite a while to figure out the timing, but now I can adjust my timing in case a horse takes off early, adds a stride, etc. it’s harder to time for jumpers because it’s so fast paced, and hunters are very timed rounds and you know the strides; that’s how I learned. In general, you’ve just got to get out there and practice until you get it down! Hope this helped!
