Those are GREAT photos. Just terrific. Look at those two hooligans having so much fun together. :) Which one is yours?

This golden retriever (Paco) is mine :)

[B]WOW![/B] My OH has done some amateur photography. He is standing behind me with his mouth hanging open in awe, saying, "That is FABULOUS." He'd like to know your camera and lens on the last shot? And anything else you would care to share?

Goldfields April 16th, 2013 12:48 AM

FABULOUS photography again, Rik! I thought I was seeing my pair wrestling for a minute, Jarrah and Roo. LOL. That last photo is extraordinary but I love the expression you caught on the ridgeback's face in the last photo. Please post more of your photo's, I'm sure you have many we'd all love to see.

Thank you. I used a Nikon d2x with the 70-200 VR 2.8. Aperture 4.5, shutterspeed 1/640 and iso 200

Fab water image! Really nice use of a high shutter speed combined with wonderful focusing for a sharp photo :highfive:

We have a facebook page and I'm gonna share this link there - hope that's cool.

I just tried and it wouldn't use a photo from the thread. can I use one of your images (and credit you) and link back to this thread?

Thx!
Marko

You can practice to make these kinds of photos. It's not really difficult because the dog, or whatever, runs parallel to the axis of the lens. You do not have any "focus" problems. You only need a fast shutter speed and the right moment.:)

for this photo the shutter speed was 1/1000 ;)

hazelrunpack April 17th, 2013 05:59 PM

Nah. I could never get a shot like that. The Pack is hydrophobic! They abhor water! :laughing:

Awesome water shots, rik!

Dee-O-Gee April 17th, 2013 08:37 PM

Amazing shots and thanks for the tips, Rik! :thumbs up

Like Hazel, I have 2 water dogs that..well....don't know how to swim. :o

I guess I could try the settings you suggested on them catching a ball or something but no water effects with my pups. :frustrated:

These kinds of action shots are not so difficult. Focus is no problem. Only the shutter speed. You need at least 1/640. If there is not enough light increase your ISO. Each time you double the ISO (for example, from 100 to 200), the camera needs only half as much light for the same exposure. If your shutter speed is is 1/320 with iso 100 it will be 1/640 with iso 200 and 1/1280 with iso 400.

If the dog or whatever moves fast in your direction it needs a different approach.
I use the continuous focus on my Nikon (AF-C) (Canon it is Al Servo AF). It keeps moving objects sharp within the viewfinder as you track the object.


If your camera do not have a continuous focus you can try this;
If the movement is predictable you can manual focus on that predictable point and press the button if the object (dog) is at that point.

(Continuous focus is much easier :goodvibes:)

They're great shots ,I guess you would need a steady hand too which I do not have anymore.
