A friend asked me if I was interested in photographing at rodeo in the local convention center last week. While I normally don’t do much for action photography, I thought it would be interesting to try. Below are a few images I have worked through.
I will say the 5D mark 2 did a fine job tracking the action, but I found it best to use AI Servo mode with only the center point. It seemed to do a better job of tracking compared to using the other points. This could be me just not familiar or comfortable enough using AI Servo and tracking action in the frame.
I did have to push to 3200 ISO, due to the f/4 limitation on the lens I was using. My faster lenses would have helped push down the ISO, but would have been too short for the action.
