07 The Steer Wrestler
With rodeo sports, you need to be quick on the trigger, and good at following the action. Pre-focussing on a spot and waiting for the competitors to hit won’t work here. Everything important in the scene is sharp and in motion. Conversion to blackand-white removes colourful ringside distractions, allowing the light (hitting from the perfect side angle) to define things.
