Agility Pics

Last Saturday I was both a competitor with Striker and photographer for the final Agility comp of the year a Brisbane Agility Clubs grounds.

It was such a fun day, Striker managed a second place in his second ever comp and a clear round too. :)

I am loving the Autofocus ability and low light performance on the new toy (D750). The night shots are all at 1/800th and ISO 8000 .

Ooh lovely photos. I recognise that first team.

There's two things I can't get with my cameras - low light photos and sport (high speed) photos. Nice work.

I tend to pick any two out of three:

Good light and contrast

Focus

Framing and content.

Amazing when you get all three together. Nice work.

Thanks Guys :)

You know Denise and her dog Trek? She's been the most awesome and helpful influence on Striker and my training.

yeah I know Denise and Trek...

Frosty embarrassed me at an SG seminar - she'd spent the previous two days stuffing herself on my cousins' dog and cat food even tho I asked him not to free feed while she was there...

So then when it was our turn to handle - she wouldn't move. I thought it was the heat and then I discovered what she'd been doing...

ARGH.

Frosty liked Trek WAY TOO MUCH - to the point where I couldn't let her say hello because he looked just like one of her best friends - and he didn't recognise her - so she got upset. And Denise helped me when I was erm humiliated by the evil hound. She is the best and so humble herself. :) And Trek was Susan's super dog. Really helped out on the demos.

Frosty is about 3kg lighter and much more responsive to training now :)

Awesome, small world!

Haha yeah Trek is a bit like my boy, not all that interested in super super friendly dogs. His so cool though, Denise let me run him around a little course once :)

I'm always amazed at just how far dogs take off for the jump. I love the crazy eyes looking straight at the camera, you can just about see the adrenalin flowing through that dog, and the kelpie who looks like it's on a catwalk. Great photos, all of them, you really captured the mood.

he ran really nicely for SG. And a couple of other people. Denise did offer for me to try but I wasn't confident enough about my signals, and I didn't think it was fair to untrain him. Tho Denise had some unco moves of her own that she was working through and Trek was very forgiving. I think that's why he was so fantastic. Ie "Oh you didn't mean to do that, try again? No wurries."

Where as my dog - yells at me when I stuff up. Cos we stop while I figure out how to do it properly.

trifecta   

Thanks for putting up those pics, Spoony! I hope to upgrade and get a new camera sometime next year - the D750 was already my pick..... but now you've just comfirmed it!

^ haha, yes, some dogs start jumping so far our with massive distance.

trifecta, I would certainly recommend the D750. For the money, at the moment I don't think there is another body that offers such a balance of 'do it all' abilities combined with top IQ and low light performance.

Dogs with too much air. My dog is definitely one of those. Recent FB pic of her going over the jump - and she's about three times higher in the air than she needs to be for the jump set at 300, she usually jumps 500 but I reckon she would have cleared a metre with that leap...
