|Max at Withrow Dog Park, full run!|
Just to get things rolling, I had our dog out chasing the ball at a dog park. My intention was to capture a subject in motion. A dog running full speed at me was a challenge. My Nikon D300 was up to the challenge! While I captured about 20 images, I liked the position of his front paws and ears in this one the best.
For me, the critial camera settings were continuos autofocus, a high shutter speed (1/500th) @ 400 ISO, and AF-C Priority set to 'Focus'. I only use 11 focus points, which can be moved around to the location I want.
I challenge you all to try subjects in motion. It's very satisfying when they come out as hoped!
Next post will deal with flying birds.
