p.1 #1 · 1st try at Rodeo


Never shot sports or rodeos before so I went and gave it a shot. The lighting was dusk so I had to push the ISO to 800 on my 60D which is in the danger zone for my noise tastes. As a result the speeds were low and this one was at 1/200.

Didn't get a high keeper rate because of the speed, but lucked into a few like this one. I need to get better at controlling noise in post so I can increase the shutter speeds.

Lens is a Canon 70-300L.

Nice grab for the first rodeo. If you could wait just a little bit later, you can get the rider in mid air coming off the horse.

I actually have more in the series (dismount etc), its just the low shutter speed I was using blurred things I didn't want blurred. In this one the blurr worked out.

I use the 70-300L as you do but I am fortunate to be in good light an do not have the issues with shutter speeds. Are one of the 70-200 2.8L's long enough?

Very nice! Would recommend fast lenses if the shooting conditions continue.

Love the first picture, exposure is spot-on and I even don't mind the slight motion blur. Great moment and job.

Good shot.
