Agility class photos!

I brought my camera to class today in the hopes of getting a handful of pictures. Usually we get a fair amount of down time but not this time of course! She had us paired up and being distraction for someone else (more on that later). I ended up getting only a few and I was pretty disappointed with it though the quality was good. But then I was talking to Heather after class and said something about how I'd stick around to take some of the next class, but I didn't want to be too much of a distraction. Tina's response as she walked by? "The dogs need distraction. Take photos if you want to!" So I stayed and took A TON. I ended up with about 250, of which 126 turned out decent enough to upload. Some turned out really good.

I am SO HAPPY with this camera. You can see how photos taken around the same time of day in the same barn with my A230 came out here. Granted I wasn't using the best lens but still, the graininess sucked.

I shot most of the ones today at ISO-1600, which let me get pretty fast shutter speeds (sometimes even 1/2000 or higher if the dog was light). Many of the photos came out totally sharp, with just a bit of grain. Many of the photos I deleted weren't blurry. They were just bad photos (dogs jumping out of the camera, etc.).

I shot everything using my 135mm f/2.8 prime lens and then cropped if needed.

And for those who haven't seen them on FB...a special treat! I got photos of Dahlia!

Photos! )

I am ridiculously happy with my camera!
