“Photography is all about learning to see things from a different point of view. It’s a language of emotion, and motion is emotion,” continued Elisabeth as she described her forte, and favorite type of photography – animal action photography. “People respond best to pictures which display emotion.” Sharon Jantzen travels back along Cambria resident Elisabeth Haug’s life journey, recording the sequences of her life which involves horses and now taking pictures of horses.
It does take a certain type of photographer who is able to handle the pressure of such an important job – as they say, “You one get one shot to get it right at a wedding, there are no do-overs” – and I tend to work very well and keep a cool head under pressure. Sarah Williams can credit her horse skills to keep her cool under pressure.
Equine magnificence is captured in the Art of Equine Photography as it focuses on artistically rendering the spirit of the horse, producing something more like a painting than a photograph.
Catch this beautiful art at Castoro Cellars Winery in Templeton through the month of July 2016. Sharon Jantzen met up with the two San Luis Obispo County photographers who are showcasing their work here during the recent Artists’ Reception.
