PHOTOS: Reno Rodeo’s 100th Year Captured on 100-Year-Old Equipment

By Ty O'Neil

With the Reno Rodeo highlighting its 100th year I, as a photojournalist, wanted to capture the celebration of a century of rodeos. Inspired by the historic images of the Reno Rodeo, I set about trying to find a way of seeing our modern Rodeo through the lens of history.

Photoshop, of course, has the capability of makin…

These are fantastic photos and a great idea for milestone celebrations like this. How did you convert the lens for the modern Canon?

I purchased a few body caps and drilled holes though the center of the caps so light from the lens could enter the camera. I then experimented oh how to mount the lens to the cap. I ended up consulting a friend who does a lot of crafts and they concocted a combination of glue and black electrical tape that held much better than my previous attempts.

All I had to do then was set the camera to manual and spend a few days practicing before the rodeo. The images in the article are a collection of about 4 days of rodeo shooting with the vest pocket lens.

The lens was roughly 80mm fixed zoom with an aperture of f5.6 just by my own estimation
