Indoor without flash *upated*

I have a sneaking suspicion that next weekends event is going to be wholely or partly held in an indoor arena, now I can t use flash due to the horses


What settings should I be aiming at for moving horses indoor?

Any help appreciated

Re: Indoor without flash

High ISO, wide apeture & fast shutter speed. Just do a few test shots to get your settings before the horses start to get what you want (I would think you would need a shutter speed of around 1/400) and adjust your white balance according to the lighting.

Is this the magazine job? If it is, you maybe need to find somewhere to pratice beforehand so you get it right on the day.

Re: Indoor without flash

I don't know about flash with horses but with dogs flash is no problem since their eyes don't react fast enough to see the flash (what they do react to is the high pitched whine as the flash recharges though).

It may be the same with horses, why not pop down to a stables and fire off a few shots with flash direct at the horses to see what happens. You may be lucky and it may solve your problem (and increase success rate on the day).

Let us know.

Re: Indoor without flash

I cant use flash Les the horses dont like flash if you are close up it can make them spook, some may be ok but the horse people go mad , one person blamed the photographer i was working with for her horse going over the wrong jump!
He stopped using flash after getting a lot of earache from them, so will ask him what settings he uses

I've attempted to photograph an equestrian event in these conditions and the results wern't great for me, as mentioned before you'll have to use a very high ISO and clean them up in post processing, but even then be prepared for your success rate to be quite low so take plenty of shots. I'd also shoot in RAW to give yourself more options in post processing.

I don't know if you have a fast zoom lens (e.g. constant f/2.8 70-200) but if your going to be doing this kind of job often you will most likely have to purchase one, it'll be the only way to consistently get decent results in these conditions... Good luck!

I agree you are going to need a fast lens. If you don't have one, if this is a one off or you are unsure, you could hire one or two to see if they suit.
