Photo Ad Tips
One of the biggest non selling points can be the photo placed in an
ad. With this economy, you need your horse to stand out from the others. Here
are a couple photo tips for your ad:
show a full side profile with the horse looking toward you (to capture any
horses under 15 hands, have the camera level about 4ft above ground.
fully bath, dry, and groom your horse before a photo shoot. (would you buy a
mud ball over a clean, sharp looking horse?)
attention to the background of the picture. Always try to get your horse
against a contrasting background. If you have a light horse, use a dark
background; a dark horse, use a light background. All horses look beautiful
on a lush green meadow background.
your photo so there is only about a cm between the edges of your horse and
the photo edges.
a friend look over you photo shoot after you have cropped and select the
best photo of the horse they would buy.
