    Glad to see this thread come up, Learning as I go. I have a Canon 40D and a 70-200 IS F2.8 L and love it. Im assuming you guys are working in all manual? or do you have a preference?.

    Right now I have been working on Aperture

    I shot this one of my dog the other day but it was with my 17-85 at a f5.6, 1/4000, 400, the lighting was tough

    I haven't shot a lot of dog pictures. I use a 2.8f 70-200mm with a 2X teleconverter if I want to reach out a ways. You will lose a stop or 2 of light with it. I also will use a polarizer to remove glare from the water. You lose 1 or 2 stops of light with it too but it is nice to eliminate the reflection. It only works if your about 90 degrees to the sun. I don't generally use the teleconverter and polarizer at the same time becaue of the loss of light stops.
    Hebrews 11:3 By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.

    What if all we have today is what we gave thanks for yesterday?

    Tony, Your website states that you are for sale, for about $1300.00.
    I'm not sure if that is a fair asking price, but if it includes your camera gear. I might make an offer.
    I have been reading reviews at the duck hunters refuge photo forum, on the Tamron 150-600.
    Sounds interesting.

    Erik,
    I almost always shoot in Aperture priority, 2nd. would be shutter priority but seldom full manual. And always in Jpeg, Jpeg vs. Raw is a long standing debate you definatly have more options during post processing but I know of 2 very successful wildlife photographers that have never shot in raw.

    I used to shoot my action stuff almost exclusively in Aperture Priority. Set for the depth of field you want, and take whatever shutter speed you get. With the high ISO capability of the new cameras, I now mostly shoot Manual, with Auto ISO. This lets me pick the depth of field, AND the SS I want, while letting the ISO float within and acceptable range.

    I like the versatility of the 70-200 f 2.8. The 300 f/2.8 is also a lens that I use a lot. Makes a really good 500 f/4.8 with a 1.7x teleconverter. I shoot Nikon.

    I hate to even ask this when you guys know so much, so I'm going to sound like an idiot, but - How the heck do you keep the dogs eyes looking correct? Every setting I've messed with they still come back glowing. What suggestions can you make to correct this.

    By the way, awesome pictures and advice.
    thanks
