I love dogs. About a month ago we adopted a puppy, we named her Sol. Sol, as most puppies, has a bio-polar personality – Either she is asleep and is perfectly still or she is awake and is perfectly hyperactive. Between those two moods it is incredibly difficult to take a photo of here which is both interesting (i.e. not sleeping) and sharp (i.e. focused on a faster than a bullet object).
My first attempts of shooting Sol were hand held using the camera’s built in auto fucus. Sadly (yet happily on other occasions) Sol was faster than the focus motor, I only got about one good photo out of every 100 clicks.
This would be a very typical photo….
