The Dog Days of Summer – Photo Op

Want to try your hand at some action Dog Photography?

By Bruce Deacon

We are looking to hold a group summer event for just this.

It is open to both dog owning and non-dog owning members.

We intend to hire a local, private, 2-acre field which has been designed and equipped with doggy obstacles to get some memorable, dog pictures.

This will give members the opportunity to practice tracking, continuous focus, appropriate shutter speed etc. particularly for hounds on the move.

Not sure about how best to do this, other member will help you.
