Dogs in Action

I am lucky to have four very agile Border Collies who love to be photographed!

Several key points to bear in mind when photographing dogs...

  • Get down to Dog level.. crouch down
  • Watch your shutterspeed at least 1/500
  • Use ISO to help maintain shutterspeed
  • Control DOF with aperture
  • Good sunny day but watch the angle of the light

All of the images were taken with the Canon 6D, some with the 100mm macro lens as it has a very fast maximum aperture of f2.8, and some with the Canon EF24-105mm.  

The image jumping over the tree was taken with an ISO of 6400 because of the poor light in the forest!
