Re: PMPE – “Pacu Jawi”, Padang, Indonesia from 29th June to 1st July 2012
Shot taken at 220mm, with a 100-400mm lens, f/8, 1/500s.
Better to shoot f/8.0 to f/11.0 to get jockey and bulls in focus (DOF) if you are shooting them straight-on charging at you.
AI Servo, max burst rate. If your camera allows you to make setting to your AF tracking, select the fastest tracking. The bulls come charging straight at you very fast.
Better be safe, stand further away with longer telephoto lens, as long as no one blocks your view.
Have fun. Some of my Padang, West Sumatera photographs can be seen at
