Photo Monday – Freeze!

I’ve been meaning to get better at action shots.  I tend to focus on aperture to get the depth of field I want but then, if the girls move, they’re blurry.  Yesterday, I managed to convince souricette 1 to be my model.  I told her to do cartwheels for me.  She chose the location.  I chose the shutter speed (1/640 at first and then I went up to 1/800).  My ISO was set at 100 and I let the camera choose the aperture.  It was alternately sunny and cloudy and the camera is way better at adjustments on the fly than I am.  Oh, and I set the camera to shoot continuously.  I’ll get to manual mode someday!

She got sick of cartwheels before I managed to get a perfect shot.

And then souricette 2 wanted a turn but she doesn’t do cartwheels.

I got back to souricette 1 who was showing off her monkey bar skills.

She’s getting so strong!
