Ask them to9 turn around next time Pablo so we can see bob smiling at us!! LOLO Got to stop doing that. It really does hurt to laugh!! Nice shots Pablo. I really think livestock may be you best subjects. Those are really good. Tell Jo she did well even through the fence and the dust!!

Thanks everyone and Jo very muchly appreciated the "honerable mention" for braving the dust and aformidable fence. I tried some shots inside in the sales ring and the light wasn't very good. The animals usually move fast in the ring and it makes it tough to get a good shot because the shutter speed is slow (I guess)

Thanks Lisa, and am glad your bovines are not mad any more.Earlier I mentioned I could not get a good photo in the ring - will post an example in case anyone can suggest a way to improve the shot.

Improve?

Short answer: tripod.

Long answer: rename the photo (for example, "Bull Rider's Last View Prior to Waking Up in the Hospital").

Pablo use a tripod or find something to lean against( thats not moving:-))...Whole lot of shakin going on there.

Thanks, a tripod is difficult in the ring area I have to work in, I will do a faster shutter and in some cases have the title describe what he saw before going to the hospital.

Pablo -

AndyW in the thread, "Help me... Z740 or DX7590," mentions a "bolt-and-string" tripod substitute.

(I took an earlier guess, but was wrong in a couple of details - it's just a length of string and a 1/4-20 screw that goes into your camera's tripod socket. You stand on the string, pull up gently, tuck in elbows, hold your breath and shoot. Then, as any lawyer would add, you should start breathing again.

(See the very fancy versions at http://www.xs4all.nl/~wiskerke/artikelen/string.html, including one variant that puts a string under both feet for extra stability.)

Anyway, it's a great idea, and it would all wrap up and fit neatly in your pocket when you're done...

Gotta try this myself -- sounds like a great idea for tripod-challenged venues.

Dave

P.S.: for the cattle sales, just wear spurs and tie the cord to one of them. When people ask what the cord's for, just tell them it's for helping swing your legover the saddle.
