I spent more time today capturing my favorite photo buddy. My plan was not to share these shots, on my blog, but they turned out so well, that I felt compelled too. The first three shots are shot in sequence, using Al Servo to follow Sparky through the grain, trying to keep him in focus and with a fast shutter speed to freeze the moment.
The trick to a great action shot is to get the eyes in focus and sharp.. and I just love how I managed it here, and with reflections from the sun too … something I am definitely getting more confident photographing… fast moving dogs!
This relied a lot on luck … Sparky pops up and down amongst the corn … I am sure he is not suppose to … but it makes a lovely photo 🙂
I then tried some more traditional portrait shots with Sparky basking in the sunshine. Sparky was constantly moving his head around, but despite that I could have used a lower ISO and therefore a lower shutter speed, once again I did not check my settings properly – a lesson, you would have thought I would have learnt by now.
