I'm still working on getting those shots! I'm getting them more consistently. Now I just need to try to get them of dogs other than my own!

This was about my favorite so far:



Though I love this one and all the snow! We got over a foot yesterday.






This one the local news station chose for the pic of the day!

Enjoy the journey! I well remember my first DLSR and going "what am I doing wrong" over and over again. It took a lot of trial and error and finally some photography classes to really help me get a better control of my camera (I can't recommend the online photography classes at the Fenzi Academy enough! they're specific to dogs and animals and I have learned SO MUCH!).
That's a great idea, I'll have to look into the classes there! Thanks!

Speaking of the classes -- in case anyone is interested, the Lightroom class is offered this session and it is HUGELY worth it. I took it at the Gold level last year and it really changed my whole understanding of post-processing photos. For an example.

Before the class:



After the class:



So just in case anyone is interested! https://www.fenzidogsportsacademy.com/index.php/courses/9715 Bronze (which is only $65 so not terribly expensive) gives you all the info without access to the instructor (there are "lurker" Facebook groups though to ask other members of the class!).

I'm improving!! (I think lol). I still haven't started doing any editing and haven't been able to take any classes, been a busy semester. But here are some raw images. Most of them could be touched up pretty easily when I get the time.

In this photo I significantly increased the oranges and yellows in the photo, as the original photo was a bit dull. Ralphie is a tad overexposed, so it's not quite as defined as I like, but I did fix it a bit with Lightroom. He still look so dignified (he was watching a combine harvesting a corn field, haha).

This was taken with my 35 mm 1.8 lens.
