My two assignments today were to cover steer roping at Frontier Park and the opening day of Fort D.A. Russell Days at F.E. Warren Air Force Base. It was only two assignments, but it spanned most of the day from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. I shot a lot of general rodeo action at steer roping then headed back behind the chutes to hunt for features. Originally, I was looking for a wide shot of the horses leaving the chute, but I ended up shooting a feature of some kids playing around behind the chute (second photo). I spent the rest of the day out at the base shooting the Fort D.A. Russell Days event. It was tough because it was the opening day so there weren’t many people – and by people I mean spectators – there. I stuck around for a while until some people started filtering in after noon. I caught a British soldier re-enactor getting a face full of musket smoke. Score.
