Great shots Greg. Active, interesting dogs.

(My dogs favorite sport is sleeping on the couch; not a lot of opportunity for interesting shots. LOL )

.......thanks Greg, your dogs in the field shots are simply the best.

I grew up in Iowa and hunted quail, pheasant, ducks....I've seen field dogs.

Steven, we've been here before (LOL).... your indoor 'gator' hunter and my leash partner CAT, not many action photo ops for either of us.

Greg, what AF matrix setting in the E-3 do you use most with the 50-200?

Beautiful dogs. Great action shots. Your sense of timing and knowing your dogs is excellent in capturing some of these.

My dogs' owner logs plenty of couch time too. The dogs do too.

I love shooting in all seasons.

Winter


Spring



Summer



And fall.




I was expecting the fall colors to be better for this trial which was held on the border of Wisconsin and the UP of Michigan. I love fall colors for the pics that include some scenery. This was the same trial as the original series.

What part of Iowa? I started life in the northwest corner. I assume you were farther south as quail coundn't survive the winters in the brutal corner of the state..

I tend to use center weighted metering and C-AF in rapid fire mode when on the tele end. You must be careful if there is a dog that has very white markings in harsher light. I have exposure bias mapped to the front control wheel to spin in a -.7 or -1.0 bias in that situation, when normal (for me) is -.3 ev.

There is a beauty of freezing motion of an athletic animal, as you photos at the track demonstrate. I'm a bit adicted to the attempted capture the frozen motion of the dog/bird combo. I'll wear out the E-3 trying.

As is the case of any area of familiarity, there is an edge in knowing what to anticipate. If you know the special times, you know when to ready yourself to hit the shutter. You can catch a pic of someone with a fish on the line, but you will capture a look of total angler concentration if you wait for the fish to run. No one is better to catch that than a fisherman that's been there.

Anyway, thanks. I consider you to be very talented as a photographer in general, and action photography in particular. From you it means alot.

Greg
