AKC Confirmation Show in West Fargo last weekend.

4 posts in this topic

I wanted to play with my 100-400 in a indoor setting without a flash and see how I would do. The lense is not fast enough for low light without cranking the iso which I try and not do but sometime you just have to. There were 1100+ dogs at the show from all over the country. My friends new Golden Retreiver took 2nd place in his division. Not bad for his first show. Anyway here are some pics taken handheld with my 100-400 L on my Canon XTI

Oh and for those of you that are wondering what a confirmation show is, it is pretty much a beauty pagent for dogs. Similar to the West Minster Dog show you see on TV. NO obediance or agilty or field, just looking pretty. They are judged in each breed by a single judge who checks them for things like coat, stance, teeth, color, length, etc. A lot of very expensive dogs running around.

Nice shots, Paul. Not an easy task shooting with no flash indoors with the 100-400.

That third images is oh-so-close, too. A single stop faster on the shutter speed and the dog's face would have been sharp with everything else blurred with motion.

Good stuff with that lens in those conditions. Why are there always limitations to everything? gringrin

I think you did a good job pushing it to the limit and it may come in handy some time in the future if a shot pops up somewhere unexpected in bad light, you have a little experiance to fall back on, to rush some of the settings.

    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice. 
    • Trump totally destroyed by hundreds of thousands the numbers that were in attendance for the inaugurations of LBJ and Gerald Ford. Trump again wins. Just win, win, win, win, if not pretend you did.   He may just do the same thing to the country, so don't get to excited.
    • Just drove down from the Brainerd area. Lots of snow up there but going fast. Saw 4 young guys in a ditch south of there with not much snow and one sled with hood up smoking bad. Their still learning you need snow to cool your liquid sleds!
