    Hey everyone. I got a Rebel SL1 for Christmas this year. I'm terrible at pictures but really want to learn. I took some photos of my pup as a test. Let me know what you think.

    Anyone else have experience with this camera?

    Shepherds make great dogs. I had my male for 13 yrs before he passed away 3 months ago. Its pretty much like loosing family.

    She's a good looking girl. Is that considered sable? I've always like the dark-faced,muzzled dogs.

    I have had 3 in my life time so far and there hands down the most obedient, smart loving dogs. My Cleopatra is down right now with a hurt leg. :-(
    She's beautiful dude!
    My big girl is 2 years old and lean and mean at 100lbs.

    Nice dog.

    Quick tips, do what you're doing already if you're using manual settings. Get on eye level with dog (also should be your focus point). Use short F/stop to blur background and create focus on dog. Use fast shutter speeds to capture the dog's quick motions in a still shot. Most of all, shoot a lot.

    I would find a quality breeder in your area first and foremost. My breeder asked me a whole bunch if questions regarding my plans for the dog. She wanted to make sure I got a GSD with the correct temperament for my goals. Meaning not to high drive but not a couch potato either for me. She provided x-rays of both parents hips and documentation for the whole line. She had them chipped and basically all their shots and what not. She gave us a puppy binder that had all their documentation, lineage, vet records and pictures from birth till the day we took her home.

    As far as getting home, she was a breeze. The first night she whined in her crate but that was it. Within a few days she was crate trained. I took her out every hour for the first two days and then slowly increased the intervals. By the end of the first week or so, she was potty trained. Now she will go sit in front of the door and bark once to get our attention.

    They are an amazing breed. You'll love your GSD!


    I'm sorry to hear about your dogs leg. Any yes, they are very smart. It only took one visit to the vets when she was eight weeks for her to learn how to open the door in the exam room lol. Mila is roughly nine months and around 70 pounds or so. Her mother is a solid 90~ and her father is just a hair over 105 I believe.

    :beer:


    For all the shots outside I was using the included 55-250mm lens. I had the camera on the sport setting and continuous shooting. Should the f/stop be adjusted for distance away from the focus point or should I be able to set it as low as possible? It's hard to make adjustments with a dog constantly running in all directions lol. I probably took over a hundred photos to even get this small handful of decent looking shots.

    Thank you for the tips!

    Her last visit to the vet was a few weeks ago and she was right at 65lbs. I'm guessing she has put on some more weight. Vet says her weight is perfect:shrug:

    I don't know if Europe vs American GSD makes a difference or not. Her mother is Czech and the father is German.
