    Were you using auto focus or manual for your action shots?

    I do agree with both of you as this is a ‘How-to’ video and the images should show quality results.

    Not trying to open any argument but at point you are right that what her clients like but from view of one professional those photos are blurry and over exposed. She mentioned about focus on eye but not in 1 photo I could see good focus or detail in eye.

    I admire your dedication to pets and their owners. I’ve been doing this for 40+ yrs and just wanted to “pipe-in” about what I discovered works well in harsh light with moving subjects. I use an ND filter when shooting f/2.8 or faster. It doesn’t decrease the ability to shoot as much as people believe. It also adds a richness to the images. Use an ND2 or ND4 and try it. You may be surprised at the results.

    Same music as Digital Rev. What and where is it from?

    Remember, it’s not about if you or I like them, its whether her clients like them.

    Nice tips, lovely photos. If you check her website, you’ll see lots of great pet photography. The “overexposed skies” are an intentional part of the photographer’s style, used to get clean, bright modern shots. The dog is the star in every single photo. Lovely job!

    I think these photos are beautiful and I really appreciate how important establishing a relationship with the pets is to the photographer.

    i think the pictures are overexposed …

    It’s the same, because when camera focuses, lenses are always wide open. Only slow variable aperture zooms have a hard time to focus when zoomed because they are stopped down at 5.6 or 6.3.
    The problem shooting wide open is that with such shallow depth of field it’s easy to miss the focus when dogs or even you move slightly.

    Isn’t it harder to focus on moving dogs when it is wide open?

    This is very informative, and your photos are awesome. Thanks!

    Didn’t like the photos. Washed out and overexposed skies. Also not sharp at all cause she shoots wide open.
