Capture the Moment

Greyhound Canine Star Running an Obstacle Course
Western Montana Fair
Missoula, Montana

One of the most challenging pictures to record is an animal in motion. In addition to a fast shutter speed to freeze the movement, you want to capture the best moment in that action. Turning on Continuous Drive and taking a rapid series of frames helps ensure you will get a good shot. This is one of six frames I made as this dog traversed the obstacle course set up at the fair.
