This photo of Fabian's and my NaMoPaiMo horses is perhaps the worst live show picture I have ever published on this blog.Part of the problem is the lighting. It was early and there wasn't a lot of natural light coming through the windows. The bigger issue, however, was the tablecloth. Horses do not look good on yellow.
And you know...
green isn't any better!
A lot of show holders will use bright colored tablecloths to distinguish between show tables. It makes a lot of sense from that point of view, but some colors are really, really bad for photographic purposes.
The neutral color is photo friendly...
and doesn't clash with anything.
I really love beautiful show photos, so show holders, please say no to yellow!
