2014 Philomath Frolic & Rodeo: Roping & Racing

The Philomath Frolic & Rodeo just wrapped up another year and thankfully I had the chance to be out there again for three of the four shows.  Here’s a few from the roping and racing (plus one steer wrestling image).

Yep, that’s Stevie Rae Willis of Stompin’ Ground fame.  I also have a photo of Sam Willis (her dad) steer wrestling here.

Rodeo Week: Roping and Barrel Racing

Just for fun – I thought I’d share more photos from the 2012 Philomath Frolic and Rodeo – but instead of just dumping a bunch of photos on you at once – I decided to give you a few each day all week long.  So – informally – we’ll consider this “rodeo week”.

Today – a few roping and barrel racing photos.

In no particular order:

  • Breakaway.  A bit of experimenting with panning and roping. 
  • Tie down roping.
  • Barrel racing.
  • More barrel racing.
  • Team roping – the event I consider the most difficult in rodeo to photograph.

Slack Night at the Rodeo

Thursday was slack at the Philomath Frolic and Rodeo in Philomath.  Just thought I’d post a few photos.  Oddly enough – no steer wrestling – but plenty of roping.

Tonight – just for fun – I worked on some panning technique and even pulled out the Lensbaby Sweet 35 for a few frames.

From top to bottom:

  • Tie down roping
  • Breakaway roping
  • Team roping
  • Barrel racing (panning)
  • Barrel racing (Lensbaby)

Sunday Afternoon at the Rodeo

Today wrapped up the 2011 Philomath Frolic & Rodeo.  I was trying a few different angles this afternoon – and some of them worked – and some of them didn’t.  For example – the fisheye lens from the announcer’s booth during team roping didn’t really work all that well.  Simply too far away.

Here are a few to share.
