wow that is a great photo.
can you help me?
everytime i go to take photographs of horses jumping they always come up blurry, what kind of setting should i have it on and auto focus or manual?
they don't come up blurry when it's just normal flat work crap though!
grr it's so annoying!

Hmm, this is a little difficult to explain without seeing the pictures you are trying to take and the conditions you are taking them in, but here goes... bear with this explanation, I'm not by any means a great teacher, but hopefully this will help you a bit.

There are normally two kinds of blur, too put it into laymans terms- motion blur and focus blur. Focus blur is when the subject is out of focus, and motion blur is when the subject you are trying to photograph is moving too quickly for the camera to capture it properly.

If the picture looks clear but just the jumping horse is blurred, then your problem is motion blur, which can't really be solved except by making your subject move slower (in this case that's not possible) or by increasing the shutter speed of the camera- and if you are using an automatic or compact camera, that's probably not possible- though if your camera has something like an "action" or "sport" preset, setting it to that should help.

If you are photographing in good light, outside, on an automatic camera, chances are the problem is focus blur and not motion blur- especially if you are trying to follow the horse with your camera and take a picture as it jumps, because that can easily confuse the autofocus. Try centering your camera on the jump you are trying to shoot and taking the picture as the horse goes over, rather than trying to follow the horse- this can make things alot easier, and hopefully might solve your problem.

Hope that helps!

haha thanks i just got my camera and i don't really know how to do anything. i have a PENTAX K100D Super. i have no idea have to do anything except focus and zoom and change the settings. how do you change the shutter speed? x] i'm going to try more photos today of my friend and just try different things. I have sport on mine and i put it on that and it works with galloping and stuff but not jumping grrr.
yeah thanks!

wow. These two practically scream skill and finesse. It's as if they were only going on a morning jog. Lovely capture, especially as b&w shots are rarely seen as a medium for equine jumping images.
