Thanks guys,

If your cameras have a high speed setting, usually shown by a little man running,( many cameras have this feature now a days) and burst mode (done by holding down the shutter) also pretty common now a days. Practice by having someone throw a ball, or frisbee for you to follow, focus on and shoot. This will prepare you for the real thing.

Thanks for the advice...I'll check out my camera to see it it has those features.

Or set the "S" shutter speed to 1/1000 or higher if you can to stop action. The aperture will open more (lower number) to compensate . Play with making test shots till you see what works in that particular situation.

Don't forget, folks, in order to win, you have to enter! Go out tomorrow and point your lens at something in the garden, zoom in close, look at something differently, grab something we don't normally notice, click and enter!

I'll have to do that once we receive a freshening snowfall ....It's looking pretty bleak and grey out there with the melting snow.

Yes, that's why I suggest zooming in on something or looking at something differently, like you did to win last month's contest!

Think....I must think..... Outside the box.
The big warm box we call a house. Something that keeps us wanting to stay inside all nice and warm.

Thanks, Sage. It has been a LONG time since I've had a photography course, and I could use the refresher.

I've not taken pictures in a while. Maybe now that the work week is over and I'm home this weekend, I'll get a chance for something.

hava, it was very wet today, melting the snow away, making all the deer hoof marks look huge, but it was in the 50s. Got a raincoat? I bet there's something in your garden you need to look at more closely~~~
