About the Image(s)

Here are before and after versions of an image (Bull_Rider_In_Flight) I recently took at a local rodeo in Brawley, California. Used a Canon 1DX Mark II with a Canon 100-400 zoom lens. The settings were: 400mm, f/8.0, ISO 400, and 1/400 second shutter speed. I frequently do action shots at high ISO’s and shutter speeds while fixing the f-stop at f/8.0. These settings greatly improve the focus of the shots.

Jim - great action shot. I like the rich sunset, dusty colors and dirt flying. Fixing the aperture at f/8 was the best decision to get the depth of field on the action. Cropping it to a square keeps the attention on that action.
Well done. Dr. Jim   Posted: 12/05/2019 16:11:25
