Failing to catch a frisbee

Me ineptly playing with the fast shutter speed on my camera, while my dog ineptly plays catch-the-flying-thing.  And yet we’re both happy with the afternoon!

This is every-other photo from a one second burst, stacked in Photoshop, with the pup and toy masked for each layer.  Shot in glare-y bright summer sunlight, and I’m not sure if I’ve quite figured out the focus for this sort of shot, but hey, it nearly all works.  Much like the dog’s attempt to catch the Frisbee.

If I can figure out how to make the strobe function work properly in the speedlights I got for Xmas, I might try this shot again at night, using long exposure instead.

Technically: f7.1, 1/1250sec iso 640 focal length 24mm (36 in 35mm terms).  Weird looking fur because a) she’s half curly coat retriever, and b) she’d just been swimming in the river.
