A friend had asked me to accompany her for a day of fun and photos at her stables. After saddling up and heading over to the riding hall, I had hoped to get a few action shots of my friend and her horse during the ride, but lighting in the riding hall was very poor. Even at f/2.8 and ISO 3200 the best I could do was 1/320, which resulted in noisy, blurry photos. Luckily, after my friend had finished her ride, I was given opportunity to snap this beauty of a portrait.
