Had a chance on Thursday night to shoot a bit at the Philomath Frolic & Rodeo. It was slack night – making it a great evening to try a few experiments.
As for the photos:
- The top tie down roping image was shot with the Hasselblad + tilt adapter from the top far corner of the bleachers. Still trying to get a good feel for this lens.
- The second image is steer wrestling. OK – not a whole lot of experimenting here. Get low – wait for action.
- The last image is team roping. A great event – but probably the one I find the most difficult to shoot. Tonight – I was just looking for some different angles – and trying to get the steer and heeler aligned or compressed into a single frame.
And as it turns out – it was a monochrome sort of night…
