We’re back at 2012’s Austin Rodeo today.
It’s not often that I review pictures I’ve shot and think “I wish I hadn’t got in as close as that”. Most of the time, getting in really tight and filling the frame with my subject is something I try to do but in this case, I wish I had more of the horse in the shot. Yes, this image catches the expression on the rider’s face quite nicely, but a vertical shot including the horse’s head would, I think, have been a lot more interesting.
My excuse here, though, was that I was shooting with a fixed 300mm f/2.8 lens and didn’t have the option to shoot wider so this is what I got. I still like the shot a lot but perhaps this year I’ll either go with the 70-200mm or head the opposite direction and rent a 400mm to get in really tight.
