Capturing of the action is not that easy, because in many occasions the rodeo is taking place during the night under the artificial light. For these photos, the aperture has to open wide to let the light in, but the shutter speed has to be fast to capture the action without blurring. The aperture and shutter speed are working against each other. A good photographer must balance these to obtain the best shot.
