It’s almost time for another monthly photography group meeting and this month, we’re going to try our hand at some rodeo photography. Various events for the Gunner Thames Memorial Rodeo are taking place at Dripping Springs Ranch Park on Saturday morning, September 5th, so I propose that we meet there at 10:00am to take pictures. It looks like the fun starts at about 10:30am with barrel racing (see the schedule on http://www.cprarodeo.com/schedule.php#ds2) followed by team roping. Both of these are amazing fun to shoot so come along and join us.
If anyone is interested in even more photography that day, we’ll be heading in to Wimberley for the rodeo that evening. It starts at 7:30pm at the VfW arena but I’ll likely be there an hour early to find good places to shoot from and to see if I can get “backstage” to take pictures of the riders. If you want to join me, let me know and we can arrange somewhere to meet. Tickets for this cost $15. I don’t know how much it costs to get in to the Dripping Springs events - they may be free to spectators?
Bring a camera and a telephoto lens if you have one. Don’t be worried if you don’t have a telephoto lens - hopefully we’ll be able to take pictures behind the scenes too so be prepared to take portraits as well as action shots.
