Hello All! I'm a newb here and this is my first real post. I've been using 35mm cameras for many years, but I'm relatively new to digital. I have a low-res digi-cam for posting Ebay sale items and forum posts, but I recently purchased a Nikon D70s. I have 5 Nikon lenses, so I figured I would stick within the brand. I'm really happy with the camera so far, but I've always struggled with getting good, consistantly focused shots of my dogs. I'm an amatuer by all accounts, but I have a decent amount of basic knowledge. I've been pretty active on the internet for years, but have never explored the wealth of photographic knowledge out there. So here's my question for all you shutter-bugs; Does anyone have any tips for getting good actions shots in general. More to the point, some sort of "focus-anticipation" that's used for a subject moving into frame? My Father taught me about photography and I've never taken any classes, so I'm not up on any of the typical tricks and short-cuts that may be learned by some formal training. I'm posting two shots I took over the weekend, the first is a static shot and the second is a moving one. The 2nd shot is the type of shot I'm looking to improve. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!
