Ines Antich is a professional photographer in SÃ£o Paulo, Brazil specializing in wedding, portraits and events.
“Our trip was very special. We had great experiences shooting the action at the farms with the cowboys, horses and cattle.
The personal time was fun also. We seem to have had a special group of people. I think we were all pushing our limits all the time.
Some of the most valuable lessons for me were the portrait lessons. I learned a lot about using available light to photograph people. I also learned the importance of using fast lenses and how the shallow depth of field they produce can enhance an image by the subject or a detail from the background.
The most exciting times were watching the horses run through the water.”
