I love to shoot my dogs in action and until now I’ve always used the Nikon D3. Lately, the D3 has been gathering dust as I’ve been enjoying street photography using smaller cameras, namely the Lumix GF1 and now the Olympus EM-5.
I’ve has the Olympus for 2 weeks now and today I had the opportunity to try some dog action shots with my favourite Supermodels Molly & Fudge. Molly & Fudge are small whippets who can run at 35 mph flat-out, so they take some catching. I wasn’t expecting the results to be much good, but I have to say I’m blown away with what this little camera can do. The light was pretty bad so I bumped the ISO up to 640. With hindsight I should have gone a little higher for a bit more shutter speed, but I think the results were pretty good for a first attempt. I set the image stabilisation to horizontal panning and the aperture at F/5.6. I was using the Olympus 45mm F/1.8.
Hope you like them.
