Yeah, yeah, this rodeo was over a week ago but I started this blog today so we’re rolling with it. Okay? Okay.
I was a bit nervous about going to this rodeo, as I had never been to the Columbia arena before but I’m really happy I went! Indoor pens tend to have better lighting situations than just covered arenas so the lighting was definitely on my side for these. This was my third time using my new lens and, of course, it worked beautifully!! The arena was set up less than ideal for a photographer, with the alley for the cattle on the left side of the alley. This made getting pole pictures and goat tying pictures a little bit more tricky, but I liked the challenge of being forced to be creative!! I always tell myself I stand in the same spot too often anyways haha
Below are just a FEW favorites from both rodeos.
