Barrel Racing at Chilliwack

_DSC2704-1

Another “virgin territory” of shooting to try out! Indoor action is intimidating (eek!) and I found it difficult to figure out a good compromise between shutter speed and ISO, but luckily there was an actual Pro nearby who gave me some excellent tips! I could feel myself improving as the hour went by, but obviously it’s going to take much more practice at this – not to mention a better/faster lens would help! (Santa? a 1:2.8 zoom lens please?)

It was also the first time I’ve watched a barrel racing event. What fun! Amazing to see the awesome athleticism of not only these wondrous creatures, but the riders as well! Will definitely hit up another event when I can!
