The Labradoodle Puppy

Last Friday was an interesting day with a few varied assignments for a number of papers. The last one was the best! A woman had called and let us know that her Labradoodle had puppies and that instead of the usual four to six they had 11. All I could image was puppies everywhere. They are now almost two months old and cruising all over the place. As the woman brought the youngin’s out to the front yard all I could think of was how do I photograph this craziness of them running all around.

Here is where the Canon 5DMk3 rocked it. I wanted to focus on one of the cute little faces and knock out the background while keeping the camera on a high enough shutter speed to stop the action, which was non-stop. So in TV mode I set the shutter speed to 1/800s and with the ISO at 125 gave me an f stop of f4 which is wide open on the Canon 24-70 f4L IS. I needed to set the auto focus at continuous AE and we were all set.

It was all guess work from here on in as I put the camera down to the pups level and they wanted to follow me around with the camera strap etc moving around. This shot was one of the better ones.
