Gidget’s Photo Shoot (Tech of the Month)

These photos are for the Tech of the Month: Focus on Animals event, hosted by PerelinColours and Lucile’s Photo101 Rehab Clinic. With this month focussed on animals, who don’t often sit still, the prompt is to focus on speed and to therefore avoid blurry shots of animals in motion.

My favourite animal, is of course Miss Gidget. The photos in the garden were taken today (Saturday) specifically for this post. The other indoor shots (where she has much shorter hair) were taken when I first bought my Olympus OMD EM5ย back in 2013 – when I didn’t shoot in RAW and did shoot in auto ๐Ÿ˜‰

I went back and looked at the settings and saw that the indoor shots were taken at a very slow shutter speed (less than 1/100s) – she wasn’t used to the camera so I guess she sat quite still for me! I took the garden shots totally on manual mode and used 1/1000s and 1/500s – much quicker speeds, which I really needed because she was running around a lot.

If you haven’t already, I would encourage you to take a look at the previous “Tech of the Month” posts – there is some really useful information and some wonderful photos in there.

    Your dog is so cute! Photo shooting with pets is always tricky, they are always moving in the wrong second โ˜บ patience and a quick shutter are the only working combination

      She really does, doesn’t she? She completely ignored me the whole time. I might as well have been talking to myself. I have a secret weapon though – if I ask her “whatcha thinkin?” she always looks at me questioningly, I think I used to ask her that when I was asking her if she wanted to go for a walk so she associates it with the walk. LOL. I’ll take it while it keeps working!!

  10. Gidget has the look of a Queen! She know she rules and is modest about it! Adorable.
    She is also photogenic. A perfect model. I am trying to make my Tech of the Month entry with the ducks and birds who are in the canal but they move a lot…I will end up posting a but blurred photos. No time for the zoo! lol
