So, before anyone says anything about cruelty to animals, etc., the rodeo is not my favorite sport. I went because it was an opportunity to do some action photos. I will not be going in the future for a number of reasons which I will not outline here.
I used my F5.0, 70-300 lens from the last row of the stands. As the light diminished the ISO went from 200 to 3200 but it still wasn't enough to stop the action, although I will have to say that I do like the blurred nature of the images in the bull ride. All in all I took over 500 pictures using the burst mode on my Canon EOS 7. I thought it did a good job. This is something I don't do a lot of and am glad I did. Just wish it were a different kind of venue.
