Horse Race at Sta. Ana, Manila

The last day of testing of EOS 1d Mark III… I called up my friend Raffy Yllana if he can get us in any horse race track i told him im a little frustrated on looking for sporting event since im not very satisfied with last sunday’s Padyak Pinoy race. I felt im not making the Mark III’s worth. Luckily i know Raffy that have great connection to anything we were able to go and shoot inside Sta. Ana race track (the old race track). First time to enter into this kind of track, first time also to shoot this kind of event. One of the unique places to photograph, we requested if can also shoot at the stable and the jockeys.

 

 

The rain poured hard as if theres no stopping. But the race must go on. See below

 

 

 

 

 The Mark III showed its power. At 10 FPS and fast AF handled the fast horses very well. I pushed its ISO to 3200 and results was fantastic. Il mirror my final review here.
