So, I finally got to go to my first rodeo. It was a small one, bull riding and barrel racing only. But, because of that, I could get right up to the ring and shoot. This was my first attempt at action photography since I got my E-M1. Even with my 40-150, a slow lens, it worked pretty well. The late evening light gave some really nice images.

Rodeos are sooooo photogenic. Jealous that we don't have them in this country.

Some nice shots, and good that you got close enough for the 40-150 to fill the frame. Hope you had fun with this one :)

I had a great time! I’m hoping to get to some more rodeos this summer. I’m in a good part of the country for it this summer. Thanks.

I hate to watch the bull riding - it's so violent. I can imagine the concussions the riders face.
This is the first time I saw bull riders wearing helmets with full face masks. Glad they wore them for their safety, but made it harder to get good shots since their faces were covered.
