Dogs – Animals In Motion – Exercise 3.3 – Sequence

My first attempts at capturing animals in motion were photographed using my bridge camera, and I wasn’t particularly happy with the results. I have re-photographed, this time using some dogs that were playing in the snow. I made use of my Olympus OMD EM10 MKiii for this series, the lens was the MZuiko 4-150 zoom. As well as making use of the photo video format, I have made a grid presentation style using Adobe Photoshop.


The results are better here than they were for the birds, not perfect, more improvement needed but a better than my previous attempt.

  1. I think it’s a great effort, Richard. It’s a tough subject and am sure with practice and effort, you will achieve the exact images you have in mind. I quite enjoyed this as I love animals and especially dogs.

  2. Having had a go at photography on our dog (and his friends) I know how difficult this all is. And you have done an excellent job here. One nice thing is that you have two similarly coloured dogs against a white background. I am sure this is much better than if you had taken they against grass.

    1. It was an opportunity that appeared on my walk. They were playing in the field on the other side of the train track. My omd shoots 8 frames per second as an initial burst then continues indefinitely at the speed the memory card will allow. I agree this is much better because of the snow.


  3. Nice sequence Richard and I agree with the comment above that the dogs contrast with the snow is very good. It is difficult keeping the focus spot on even with modern cameras but as far as I can see it looks good. I also prefer the stills grid to the video.
