Bay Area German Shepherd Rescue

This is an intermediate photo tip and assumes that you know about aperture priority, f-stops, the different focusing setting on your camera "Tracking versus single shot" and you understand ISO

Would you like to take pictures of your dog like this? It’s actually quite easy.

1) Set your camera to aperture priority and f8

2) Set your camera AF in a mode that tracks the subject - Canon calls it AI-Servo 

3) In daylight set ISO to at least 800 

You’re ready to go

We used a wide angle zoom lens (Canon 24-105) set at 24mm - You can use any lens but it must me 35mm or wider

You don't need to be looking though the lens. Just  hold your camera near the ground and call the dog 

Run backwards and shoot continuously at 4+ frames per second and do this several times

We took about 19 shots to get this one

Good luck!
