1.in what area is critique to be sought?
Seeking feedback on composition for shooting an active subject - playful dog.
I've done previous shoots of cats and have no problems with them as they have lesser movement.
2.what one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
Improve the technique of using a prime lens for effective composition, also to gain experience in capturing 'fast' moments.
3.under what circumstance is the picture taken?
Dog owner & myself interacted with the dog to get the attention to the frame.
Camera setup was using a 50mm prime lens, f2.8 (for bokeh), manual mode with auto ISO (to match the movement of the dog). Also used Tungsen WB as the lights in the room were quite yellowish.
I was advised to use flash in this situation, but I felt that the bright lights would be 'harmful' for the dog (probably scare it or something). I wanted the dog to feel comfortable with the shoot and be its normal self.
4.what the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture
As this is my 1st try on a fast moving subject, I think the auto ISO did help quite abit in making the pic brightness visible. However, upon blowing up the actual pic, the 'noise' level was quite visible. (3200 in this case)
Although I did capture the expression of the playful dog, but I guess it could be further improved.
