    A few of my dog. I took a lot of action photos, like #3. I can't figure out why they all turned out blurry. I had it set on action, which automatically sets the shutter speed to freeze action, and yet they came out blurry. Any ideas?

    You have an adorable doggy!!! I love the last photo! It's awesome. Again I'm new so I am only using you to pracitce with here - lol. I hope you dont mind. I think no matter what setting you use it'll be blurry sometimes if the subject is moving quick I can't help you there yet. But I did that blur thing again and I cropped it so the puppy isnt right in the middle. I love that dog!

    Thanks for the reply. I like the border and the crop looks nice. I wish I had a photo editing software.

    There are three possible reasons why pictures are blurry:
    1) subject is moving too fast for the shutter to capture
    2) the camera is shaking too much and the shutter speed can't compensate
    or
    3) the focus is off.


    Exposure Time: 0.0040 s (1/250)
    Aperture: f/4.0
    ISO equiv: 100
    White Balance: Auto
    Metering Mode: Matrix
    Exposure: Creative Program (based towards depth of field)

    Your f stop is f4 so your depth of field is pretty shallow. The problem is probably that the subject is moving so fast that your autofocus can't react in time and the dog is running right out of the area that is in focus.

    So you need more speed, deeper depth of field (meaning larger f number) and/or more sensitive sensor (iso). You need to read a little bit in your manual or other books to learn how to handle this situation.

    How cute Dab. I love your dog. The fourth shot is just too adorable! It would look really cute in B&W.

    Awww, what an adorable puppy! The last two are definitely my favorites!

    By the way, I sharpened the third one (still not perfect, but I think it looks a lot better), and I took the fourth one into Photoshop and made it grayscale + duotone as was suggested above. Hope you like them. :)
