I like them all, but the third one is extra fun. Well done!

Some of these are magazine worthy!! What kind of camera are you using that takes such amazing shots of them in motion?
Thanks for the compliment! The camera I'm using is the Olympus EM1 Mark II - it's a camera especially made for fast action sports photography. There are many great cameras out there devoted to this genre. I like the Mark II because it's the smallest/lightest out of these "professional grade" cameras.

The key is using a fast shutter speed to freeze the motion.

Thanks. I have a neighbor who is a master engraver and also a good photographer. I'll have to pick his brain too. These photos are so good.

Wow, poodles in motion! Amazing photography. Thanks for posting the type of camera you are using, the Iphones don’t take bad pictures, but don’t compare to the quality here.

Great photos, they really capture the sense of motion. I used to dabble in sports photography, and capturing action without completely freezing everything is a real challenge! I assume you are using shutter speed priority on your camera settings? I would try a little bit faster shutter speed, to find a good balance of motion blur in the background, with less bur on the dog itself. Shooting a dog whose motions are somewhat unpredictable makes it even more challenging. Have fun and show us more!

Thanks Eric! I'm shooting manual - adjusting both shutter speed and aperture (for the fast action ones, shutter speed 1/2000-1/3000, Aperture 2.8-4). For the panning shots, I slowed the shutter speed to 1/30 and yeah it was a real challenge just to get those photos. I will keep experimenting until I find the sweet spot of background blur/focused dog.

Here's another panning shot - this one has relatively good dog focus, but lacks the "flying effect" of an earlier shot - along with a bunch of clear action shots of Shilo I took this morning. All the original files are 5-15MB in size; unfortunately, the PF upload limit is 200KB.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again!

They are both great photos, but I like the first one particularly, great timing on that one! Your dog is fortunate to have such a beautiful place in which to play.
