Bareback bronco riding at Calgary Stampede

High Jumper

This was shot at the Calgary Stampede. First time I have shot a rodeo so I had little background to work from. Taken in bright sun, from a long distance, hand held with a high ISO, high shutter speed and burst shooting, using a long zoom lens. Hand held allowed me to follow the action as well. I have chosen not to crop this particular shot so that the audience reactions, or lack of them, is also a part of the story, as well as that of the rodeo workers. This was an interesting shoot and i would like to try it again, but hopefully being a little closer to the action. In many ways I am sure I broke many of the normal shooting rules, but I think the results still worked.
