Default New puppy friend

Picked up our new seven week old puppy yesterday. Our one year old schnauzer needed a friend to play with. Single center box focus on her face.

What a cutie. My girlfriend's youngest dog is a black schnauzer and she is a real sweetheart.

Thanks. Yes, she sure is a cutie. Schnauzers make wonderful pets, smart, and easy to train.

Thanks Tulio. Tried some action shots of the puppy playing with our other schnauzer but the PL2 isn't fast enough to capture the moment. Seems like a little lag from the time you press the shutter until it actually trips.

IMO, the EPL's AF much faster with non-Zuiko lenses. My EPL1 is way faster with the Lumix 14-45mm.

James, what a great looking pup. You have captured that "not yet ready for the world but just you wait" character of a puppy so wonderfully. And now you have two? Brave man!

Capturing the pup at play -- I have a great collection of almost focused, almost in frame shots of our standard poodle. But I'm not going to give up, I'm sure my PL1 can manage to capture a focused keeper. Gotta be buried in the menus somewhere...

I must have taken 40 shots and got about five I liked as far as focus goes. That's the beauty of digital, that much film would be expensive.

Puppies give you little time. Try and get down on their level to shoot and come running right up to you. Here's a couple I have captured of my girlfriend's baby, Gabby, with the E-P3 and FL50 flash..







This last image was shot at the 75mm end of the 75-300 M. Zuiko. Just sitting here thinking about this focal length with a maximum f1.8 setting with the upcoming 75mm f1.8 instead of f4.8 with the zoom has me drooling..
