Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo in Cheyenne, Wyoming at Frontier Days on July 29, 2018.
Time
I took this photo at 3:40 pm during the barrel racing competition.
Lighting
The lighting was problematic because it was raining at the time, but I liked the deeper colors caused by the cloud cover. The fans in the stands were not so happy to see the rain come.
Equipment
Canon 1DX, Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM at 155mm, handheld, no flash f/3.5, 1/60, ISO 100
Inspiration
Panning presents great challenges, particularly when the lighting is dim and your target is traveling about 30 mph in the rain. During the 11 seconds of her ride, I took 38 images. I try to focus on her head and if I catch it, hope there might be other parts of her or her horse which are in focus too. I enjoy shooting other events at the rodeo but in comparison, panning shots in the Barrel Race present the most challenging opportunity.
Editing
I don't know if this is what you want, but it is from my file information. 2018-07-30T14:56:15-06:00 File July 29th 1802 Rodeo.CR2 opened Model: “Canon EOS-1D X” Settings: Custom White Balance: As Shot Temperature: 5050 Tint: -3 Without Convert to Grayscale Saturation: -1 Sharpen Amount: 0 Luminance Noise Reduction: 0 Color Noise Reduction: 25 Vignetting Amount: 0 Shadow Tint: 0 Red Hue: 0 Red Saturation: 0 Green Hue: 0 Green Saturation: 0 Blue Hue: 0 Blue Saturation: 0 Vibrance: 14 Hue Adjust Red: 0 Hue Adjust Orange: 0 Hue Adjust Yellow: 0 Hue Adjust Green: 0 Hue Adjust Aqua: 0 Hue Adjust Blue: 0 Hue Adjust Purple: 0 Hue Adjust Magenta: 0 Saturation Adjust Red: 0 Saturation Adjust Orange: 0 Saturation Adjust Yellow: 0 Saturation Adjust Green: 0 Saturation Adjust Aqua: 0 Saturation Adjust Blue: 0 Saturation Adjust Purple: 0 Saturation Adjust Magenta: 0 Luminance Adjust Red: 0 Luminance Adjust Orange: 0 Luminance Adjust Yellow: 0 Luminance Adjust Green: 0 Luminance Adjust Aqua: 0 Luminance Adjust Blue: 0 Luminance Adjust Purple: 0 Luminance Adjust Magenta: 0 Split Tone Shadow Hue: 0 Split Tone Shadow Saturation: 0 Split Tone Highlight Hue: 0 Split Tone Highlight Saturation: 0 Split Tone Balance: 0 Parametric Shadows: 0 Parametric Darks: 0 Parametric Lights: 0 Parametric Highlights: 0 Parametric Shadow Split: 25 Parametric Midtone Split: 50 Parametric Highlight Split: 75 Sharpen Radius: 1 Sharpen Detail: 25 Sharpen Masking: 0 Post Crop Vignetting Amount: 0 Grain Amount: 0 Color Noise Detail: 5050 Lens Profile Enable: 0 Transform Distortion: 0 Transform Vertical: 0 Transform Horizontal: 0 Transform Rotate: 0 Transform Scale: 100 Auto CA: 0 Exposure 2012: 0.3 Constrast 2012: -25 Highlights 2012: -54 Shadows 2012: 41 Whites 2012: 17 Blacks 2012: -11 Clarity 2012: 14 0 30 70 0 40 60 0 0 Tone Curve: 0, 0, 255, 255 Red Curve: 0, 0, 255, 255 Green Curve: 0, 0, 255, 255 Blue Curve: 0, 0, 255, 255 Camera Profile: “Adobe Standard” Camera Profile Digest: “4918FB6142A1A8038F8123FFCDC8F2E8” Process Version: 167772160 Retouch: “” Red Eye: “” Local Adjustments: “” “<x:xmpmeta xmlns:x="adobe:ns:meta/" x:xmptk="Adobe XMP Core 5.6-c140 79.160451, 2017/05/06-01:08:21 "&bt; <rdf:RDF xmlns:rdf="http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#"&bt; <rdf:Description rdf:about="" xmlns:crs="http://ns.adobe.com/camera... “<x:xmpmeta xmlns:x="adobe:ns:meta/" x:xmptk="Adobe XMP Core 5.6-c140 79.160451, 2017/05/06-01:08:21 "&bt; <rdf:RDF xmlns:rdf="http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#"&bt; <rdf:Description rdf:about="" xmlns:crs="http://ns.adobe.com/camera...

In my camera bag
When I shoot the Frontier Days Rodeo, I have my Canon 1DX; my inherited antique Canon 500mm f/4.5; my Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L II; my Canon 16-35mm for shots over the chutes; rain covers; lens cleaners; extra batteries and cards.
Feedback
In rodeo shots, I try to remember that to get a good photo there should be good combinations of the animal and the rider since they are team which is in competition. When I posted this on Viewbug I got a great comment about the intensity of Jackie Ganter, the rider, "Dear present and or future life partner, try hard to stay on her good side. I'm just sayin' :-)" BillW. So the moral is capture as much of the rider's personality as possible during a frantic ride.
