Action Photo Autofocus Tips - Australian Kelpie Jumping over grass

Check out my blog at www.fotoinusgrobler.com

An Australian Kelpie jumping over a small grass hill next to a vineyard.

This action photo required quick auto focusing which my Canon 5D MkIII is very good at. I made sure my shutter speed was high enough to freeze the motion of the dog jumping at 1/800th of a second. I set my focus to AI Servo mode to keep the dog in focus as he moves. As the dog was getting ready to jump I held down the shutter button and followed the dog jumping. My camera with the Canon 24-105mm lens was able to get every single shot in focus and I choose this photo as the best from the burst series.

In this case 1/800th of a second froze the action but usually between 1/1000 and 1/2000 is needed to ensure the photo is sharp.

This photo was taken in September 2014 with a Canon 5D MkIII and Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM.

Camera Settings: f/4.0, 1/800 seconds and ISO 2000
