Youth Rodeo with FA31
16

I’ve only had a few chances to use my FA31 with the K-1 II which I got just before Christmas. This weekend I had a chance to use this combo at the Youth Rodeo competition in Arcadia FL.

Being my first rodeo, it took me a little time to figure out the best location for taking photos. The lighting was also not perfect inside the arena, but I settled on ISO 1600 and shot most images at f/2.8 or f/4.0 to keep my shutter speeds at a manageable 1/320 or above. I wasn’t worried about a little blur to help emphasize the action as evidenced in the photo of the horse kicking up a lot of dust.

The FA31 has always been one of my favorite lenses. I think it did a nice job in what was really a self-assignment to learn more about youth rodeo in Florida. I’ll be going back as it was really fun seeing these kids compete.

Cheers,

Ned
