The rodeo returned to the Boulder County Fair last night. It was the first time I had shot a rodeo since I left my last job in Evergreen. It felt good to be back in the arena. I was a little nervous about shooting in a venue that I had little experience with. The thing about covering the same rodeos year after year is that you get a really good sense for how the events run and where you should be for each event to make the best picture. I struggled a little bit with some events last night due to the fact that the arena had livestock pens on 3 sides. It makes it difficult to find the right position when you physically can’t be in the place you would want to be. Overall it was a good time and I made a few decent photos throughout the night. Next year will be better based on the experience I gained. Enjoy.
