RODEO SPACE-TIME EXPERIMENTAL DIGITAL PHOTOS
Experimental Digital Photography (EDP) by Rick Doble -- online exhibit
My latest experiments with motion photos of space and time taken at slow shutter speeds.
These are real photographs of a real rodeo; they were not created with computer software or with computer graphics.

rodeo horse and rider, space-time experimental digital photography



ABOUT THESE RODEO SPACE-TIME DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHS:
In the summer of 2009 I went to a local rodeo in Eastern North Carolina. Taken in the evening I deliberately shot these photographs in such a way to convey a sense of motion. I call these pictures space-time photographs because they were taken at slow shutter speeds to record the passage of time as the horses and riders moved. If you want to know about the camera settings and techniques I used to make these photos, read my paragraph below on this page about technical information.

ABOUT THE ORDER OF PHOTOGRAPHS IN THE ONLINE EXHIBIT
To demonstrate the range of effects with space-time photography, I put photos that are reasonably clear at the beginning while the later ones in the exhibit are more abstract and more distorted. I did this deliberately to show how very different photographs can occur in the same situation and with the same lighting, since the amount of distortion depends on the movement of the horses and riders along with my control of camera movement.

Read about my first digital photography experiments which I called 'Painting With Light'. These essays about 'Painting With Light' explain in detail how I started pushing the boundaries of traditional photography with the new power of the digital camera.

MORE TECHNICAL INFORMATION ABOUT THIS ONLINE EXHIBIT:
These digital photos were taken using a slow shutter speed (usually about 1/2 second). I shot the photographs of an individual horse and rider using a telephoto camera setting and panning as I handheld the camera. For shots of groups of horses that were being ridden, I panned the camera at a more wide angle camera setting as I handheld the camera. I took these digital photos in available light using an ISO of 400. I also chose a high f/number (f/8) and focused at an intermediate distance. That way I would not have to worry about the focus (essentially I was 'zone' focusing) since the horses and riders were constantly changing their distance from me.
