    Or else my mom is just a camera dunce :P

    We were at an agility workshop...Zeke was a bit slow, but it was his 3rd lesson in 3 days and I think he was getting a bit flustered.
    On the whole, though, it was a good experience.

    The jumps are all low, mainly because it was mostly a handling type workshop and there was a Corgi with us :P

    See, he really CAN pay attention.

    Great shots of you and Zeke at work!! What kind of camera does your mom have? If it's a point and shoot, the shutter speed on those really is slow and it's very hard to catch the action at the right point. I think she did a good job anyway. You guys look great. Zeke looks like he's in good physical condition. Nice work!

    It is a point and shoot with an annoying shutter delay :P

    She attempted to take videos too, but she was confused about "off" and "on" She had the camera ON while she wasn't videoing and then turned it OFF to take videos of Zeke. We ended up with lots of videos of her feet : (she doesn't normally use a digital camera :P)

    Oh...and Zeke is a svelte little dog. He could use more conditioning though. I tend to run him ragged :P (imagine a border collie trainer and a labrador trainee. Pity the labrador :-\)

    I think you mom did a great job for a first time agility photographer. Sure she got Zeke's butt entering the tunnel but you could have just had a picture of the tunnel. :P

    My digital camera is point and shoot too. If I depress the shutter button halfway, then wait for the subject to get in the frame, then finish depressing the button I usually get what I was looking for. I'm not sure if you can do that with all cameras but it's worth a try. The lag is occuring because the camera is checking the lighting, focus, etc before actually taking the shot. By depressing the button half way, the camera performs this checking function first, then it is ready to take the shot when you are.
