07 The Steer Wrestler

NPhoto - - Photographer of the Year - Ed Roth

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.
