Full Manual

I haven’t used full manual mode much but I gave it a try while running the dogs this week. In the past I have struggled to catch the all the action of the running dogs and still have them in focus. But, this time, I think I did it!

It just turns out that most of the action I see is from behind.

    Ha! Nice one.

    I learned once that when you’re shooting in full manual, focus doesn’t change much from a distance. Try experimenting with setting manual focus and shooting moving things without fussing with focus too much. It’s not a guarantee of success, but generally allows you to shoot more frames.

    Considering you were moving too, that was one hell of a shot!

    fantastic — good for you. I use full manual all the time but the only time I don’t is when shooting dogs or livestock when they’re moving. That’s when I go either to Aperture priority or Shutter priority, depending upon what I’m wanting. Love the snow being kicked up in the back end!

    That’s such a nice shot and also a gorgeous dog!! I can’t use manual mode at all so much respect to you.😂

      Thank you! (Though I’m totally suspicious of you calling my dog gorgeous when all you can see is his tail end… but he is a gorgeous dog and you recommend excellent books so I’ll go with it. 😉 )
