Thought I would try the 300 mm AF-S f.4 on a couple of my dogs. Nothing special but I think they turned out nice. With the sunshine it's so hard to avoid blown highlights.

Good looking pup...reminds me of a dog we used to have many years ago.

And the shots look good too...the 300 f/4 is a great lens.

Dave, I'm very happy with that lens. It's a joy to shoot with. Thanks for your comment.


Nice looking dog. You just wanna pet him/her :)
Thanks Dave. They are two girls. Littermates from a litter I had almost 4 years ago.

Beautiful
You have nailed photographing them
Thanks as always Gale. I've learned more taking pictures of my dogs than I could read in any book.

Nice looking dog and you got the exposure right here!!
Thanks Gary. I try to avoid blown highlights. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I don't. Sometimes it's impossible and you have to compromise.

Torben,
I always enjoy seeing your dogs. They look calm and stately in these. Looks like you nailed the exposure to me. Very nice.
Thank you Dave. Most of the time they are very calm in warm days like we have right now but with the evening chill the young ones takes a few rounds in the garden.


I think they are gorgeous Torben. I've always liked the 300 for portraits.
Thanks Frank. It is becoming my favorit lens. I'm just worried that I begin to lust after a 2.8.:eek:

Torben,

Both the pictures and your dogs are beautiful! I know how hard it is shooting solid colored dogs, you've done a great job!
