This afternoon, I thought I'd stop by the small horse farm down the road from me while I was out running errands. They have a foal out there and it looks like they weaned him this week from his Mama. Very friendly, but definitely wanting somebody to meet his needs!!
So, I pulled over and tried my continuous shoot and switching out of lens.
I think I could have still done a better job of focusing but I'm not going to beat myself up on it this week. There was a fence between us and he took off into a nice trot before I was fully prepared.
Then, he broke into a gallop, which was just perfect for me.
I prefer the above shot...more extension.
The one thing it proved is that I can get those extended trot shots that I have been wanting for the rescue horse farm.
Below, I couldn't even look through the view finder because of the fence but simply raised it up and pushed the button to see what I got. Unfortunately, it was a very focused mid-fence line. But, little guy was as cute as he could be whining for Mama.
And then, I got to switch out lenses and take a couple distance pics of the horses in the other pasture. Looks so peaceful.
So that's it. Maybe tomorrow I can some more features.
