Arnprior Stampede – June 12, 2016

The Arnprior Stampede – June 12, 2016

I recently enrolled in the “Summer Events” SPAO class, and our first outing was to the Arnprior Stampede. Despite the bitterly cold weather (11°C with strong winds, making it feel like 8°C), I managed to get these photos. I have never been to a rodeo before, so this was an entirely new experience for me, both as an event and for the photography. You definitely need a telephoto lens to get close to the action, and a fast shutter speed to stop the action. Many of these actions last seconds.
