Who knew that less than an hour south of Cleveland was a full fledged rodeo? Last summer, the Cleveland Photographic Society arranged a field trip to “Buckin Ohio” in Burbank, OH, very close to the Lodi exit of I-71. I enjoyed it so much that I went back to another event a few weeks later! The photo opportunities were great and along with many bull riding and barrel racing photos, I took many candid photos of the crowd as well as the cowboys and cowgirls. The setting sun, provided the golden glow on the faces in these two candid shots while the northern sky was still deep blue in the background. Hard to believe it’s northern Ohio and not Texas or Wyoming!
I can’t wait to drive down to Burbank again this summer for some more rodeo shooting! Four events are planned for this summer. Details can be found at:
