Photo of the Month - Bareback Bronc Rider

Photo of the Month


This image by Brian Grant was taken at the 2016 Arcadia Fall Rodeo and received a Yellow Ribbon in the recent FCCC Digital Documentary Competition. It has also received to date 9 acceptances in three divisions - PSA Color(1), Photo Travel(3) and Photojournalism(5). It has one honorable mention in Photojournalism.

Brians comments are: I was deliberately shooting from a low position trying to get the scale of the elevation when these horses jump.

I was using my Nikon D750 with the Nikkor 200-500mm f5.6 zoom on a monopod. I was shooting aperture priority, matrix metering. The lens was wide open(f5.6) at 290mm. ISO was 400 and the camera picked 1/2500 second. I opened the shadows a bit using Photoshop Elements 13 and probably sharpened for projection with the NIK suite.
