    Question for Tamara Lackey.
    Great photos !!!
    I have the same camera and lens combo.
    What type of focusing were you using?

    nice video, but – what did you do to get the focus on the dog? Auto focus and? The focus on my Sony seems all over the board.

    Great video very informative, nice concept about the crop reference the diagonal – just quick pointer do you find the distractions on the left a little too much would it be better to do a tighter crop to take them out… just an observation and wanted to know what other thought…

    Surprised by the crop! I would have come in really tight.

    Blue top, White Center/Bottom, Bar as bottom border.

    But that’ just me!

    I assume you used AI or AI Servomode(Canon). I’m sure Nikon has the similar autofocus modes with other names only.
    It means tracking the object and ignore Obstacles like bar.

    Great training video! I would use (Canon) the multiple focus points feature that will track the moving subject in Al Servomode and as for shutter speed, probably F 1/4000. I would also agree with the other gentlemen recommending a tighter crop. My eye kept moving towards the bottom bar too much. I get the use of the green as a contrast, but can’t always have everything.
    Thanks for this video .
