As promised in an earlier post here are some shots from the Western Stampede Rodeo held in West Jordan, Utah July 4-6th 2013 This series of shots are from Saturday the 6th and the rain that started on Friday night had continued unabated the entire day…
This next series is of a horse that went nuts in the chute and they let him out where he proceeded to go even crazier, they roped him and he walked out of the arena just fine.
No doubt by now you’ll have noticed that I had a ton more images from Saturday then I did Friday, this was because I shot on manual all night to ensure a high enough shutter speed and trusted Noiseware to clean up the noise at 3200 ISO. It wasn’t perfect but it worked well enough.
All my shots were with a Nikon 70-300mm or a Rokinon 8mm fisheye.
I had such a great time even with all the mud and rain splatters, if you ever get a chance to photograph a rodeo I highly recommend it!
