focus on ME!

By LazFair
This dog never lets you give anyone else attention - never mind attempt to take any sort of landscape photo, this was the only decent shot I got because the rest had a yellow blur in them, or else a stray tail!

To be honest I think you could achieve a much better shot if you came down to their eye level...I'm not sure why you took this at this angle, its not telling me anything.....I think to achieve a more creative and engaging shot you need to focus on how the dogs move and think about what you would like to capture in the shot before you take it.

Sorry if this sounds harsh but with two very active budding models you could really get some crackers.

Thanks- I normally do try to take at their eye level - this was more a "point and shoot" moment, but the angle certainly does lose a lot of their perspective.

I struggle to get the light right with this pair - one's so dark, the other's so light that I lose the detail on either coat with most conditions. Do you have any suggestions?

Perhaps experiment with your metering options....matrix may be better for an action shot but if they are still then try getting a neutral white balance by taking a reading from the grass ...or a rock....and then manually focussing. Hopefully you will get more detail in both of their coats.

Will do - Maybe I'll get some good ones, thanks Grin though my photgraphy's still very hit and miss... Love your shot of Daisy, she looks so happy sending snow flying everywhere!
