I was practicing using my grandmothers old Nikon, since my beloved Olympus is in the camera hospital, it has a multi function that lets you take continuous photos without have to forward the film. This function is great for action shots as you can capture every second the horse is moving over the fence.
I enjoyed taking photos of the various spectators, there were some great characters. I find it much easier to take photos of men, or should I say the men seem much more willing to have their photos taken,( just give them a wink and a smile and they cant seem to say no!). They also do not seem to pose, or at least not on purpose making the photos seem more natural. I find when I ask to photograph women they become to self conscious and usually will not let me or else they smile to much and pose as if they are taking a holiday snap which doesn't always work to my favor.
