Matt finally explains what rodeo is about (part 1 of many to follow) and Ryu shoots the Homeless World Cup.

Assignment Desk
High and low.  Better, but still not the greatest. More people should participate, because it’s, you know, free. But it’s also true that you are getting better. Even if your improvement can be measured in micromillimeters. For the next episode it’s…

… emotion.  You know the drill.  Get off your buttocks and get shooting. Sports is about winning and losing. You have to get in there to capture the moment, even if it will cost you your soul.

Pledge QQQs
This month we had a lot of questions from the Patreon pledgers:
-300mm or 400m lens?
-How do you juggle a big lens and a small lens whilst shooting?
-Is VR important in shooting sports?
-Pre focusing in baseball action?
-ND filters to slow shutter speed?
-How do you deal with heatwaves?
-Single or dynamic focus?

If you are a Patreon pledger, you are entitled to ask one question per episode.  So get asking.

We go cycling amongst a sea of sunflowers for the billionth time.
