We went to a rodeo today and had a blast. This shot is hand held taken in manual with the following settings: F-6.3, ISO 320, shutter speed 1-1600. Ron (Bruz) has patiently been teaching me manual on my camera (or trying to) and this is what I have captured. How did I do Ron?

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photograph at the RAM Rodeo Tour in Orangeville, Ontario. It was my first time at a rodeo and it was such a fantastic and entertaining Western experience.
Time
I captured this photograph at approximately 2:00 p.m. in natural lighting.
Lighting
No flash was required on this photograph as on this particular day it was a beautiful warm sunny day and the natural lighting was perfect!
Equipment
I used my Canon camera which was hand held. I do not believe you do not need to have an expensive camera to capture a beautiful photograph. I feel strongly that cameras do not take the photograph but photographers do.
Inspiration
I was inspired and intrigued by the fast paced action of a rodeo. Each rodeo event creates a different and exciting challenge for a photographer whether it be team roping, bull riding or barrel racing etc. There is always an atmosphere of excitement and a hint of danger at the rodeo. Capturing the personality through the expression on someone’s face is something that can tell a story and can capture how someone felt. You are so close to the action that you feel as if you are apart of it.
Editing
The only minor post-processing I did on this photograph was to cropped it a bit and then I used Photomatix to make the photograph a bit more vibrant! Otherwise what you see is what came straight out of my camera.
In my camera bag
In my camera bag I carry my Canon camera, extra batteries, various filters, lens filter cleaner and extra memory cards.
Feedback
I strongly believe that every photograph tells a story, so make your photograph tell a story. Photography changes the way you see things. You notice colours, textures, people, nature … everything around you looks different when you start to see the world through a lens. Have fun and enjoy doing what you love doing, which is taking photographs. Don’t follow your dreams … chase them!
