Over the years I've tried many times to get the classic "dog shaking off water" shot and never been happy with the results (which is strange since we're in the water so often). This day I finally figured it out... (bigger)
The difficulty I had wasn't the settings (iso, shutter, aperture, focal length and such)... it wasn't the intensity or angle of light... (bigger)
The problem was that I wasn't there... my head was trying to capture what didn't exist rather than being present in the moment. This day I just had a gut feeling and acted without trying to force things to be what I wanted... and I ended up liking the results. (bigger)
I don't know why I forget to exist in the moment sometimes... I need to work on that...
