Today i took some shots for a friend who teaches dog agility
Very good focus in all - was that prefocusing with a burst when the dog got to that jump point?
The only downside is the backgrounds are a little distracting, but at those events I can well understand the limitations you have for finding good clean backgrounds.
Oh and points off for dog number 5
Cheers, no AI Servo one shot 1D & 300mmF2.8L, he teaches in a field next to a pub car park and to close to fence for me to shoot the other way i could have put the 200mmF2.8L on but would have been too close last time the dogs jumped all over me
Bit less distracting background
Wow, very impressive. Great timing, great focus, and I disagree about the backgrounds- in this situation, I prefer the busy and sufficiently out of field background.
Chjeers mate :thumbup:
Nice series. I love the last shot in your second post, but I am partial to border collies.
These are very well shot. I really wish I could get a better handle on when and where local events like this happen around me. You inspire me to want to try this for myself!
Great pics, really lovely colours. I especially like 4 & 5 from the first series. I also agree that the background is not too overpowering, it is after all a part of the story (the previous jumps) and not in focus. I always believe the eye should be drawn to "look around" in a pic, not just at one focal point.
Thank's, the collies are nutters they never stop barking from start to finish
Thank's mate, what about husky racing with sledge (not sure what they call it) that would be great fun to shoot and your 50-135 should work a treat
Thank's mate, look forward to seeing more of your shots, i'm a bit fed up one of my favorite rallies has be called off due to the economic situation
