Spent a couple of hours at the local dog festival yesterday. I've added a second AD200, so both flashes are now lightweight strobe heads with the power units on my back. Recycle time is faster, I'll exhaust myself before I do the batteries, and it's easier to carry. I had a couple of photographers approach me tryin' to figure out what the heck I was doing. My faves.

Bonji's birthday. Entree was an omelet, well a raw egg with grated cheese on top! Main course steak and dessert banana, strawberries and watermelon. He was 7, bit of an exhausting day! 🐺

It’s Ziva’s birthday today, 11 years. She won’t be getting the grand dinner though.

Taken when she was 10 years, 363 days old.

Alright, you asked for it. :)

I use a GX8 for the RF body style, and because it has a flip out screen. I've tried holding the G9 in the same manner, and it's just too big. I've got a modified L flash bracket that is flipped to the right side of the camera. The original cold shoe has been removed and a new one put on so my flash faces the "right" way on my backwards bracket. A hydration pack is used to hold the power unit of a Godox AD200 on my back, the extension cable runs out to my left hand to the flash head. Both strobes have round diffusers on them; I'm on the hunt for a better quality solution for this, but haven't found it yet. (suggestions are welcome)

m4/3's deep depth of field is an asset IMO, because I don't often have to think about adjusting my aperture to ensure the dogs entire face is in focus. I almost exclusively use the PL8-18. I liked the results with the Samyang 7.5mm FE, but manual focus is one too many things to worry about when you're chasing dogs. Lately I've added in the G9 + the N42.5 f/1.2 as well.

The owner of the french bully seen in this thread: https://www.mu-43.com/threads/which-would-you-choose.104985/#post-1308588 snapped a picture that shows me at work.

Your dog photos are really special and uniquely your own style. Thanks for openly sharing your methods. It's great to see this shot of you working, it speaks a thousand words!

Thanks! I am trying to do something a little different. I think it plays to m4/3rds strengths. One of the other photographers at Petapalooza caught me doin' my thing. You can see the camelback holding the AD200's much better in this shot.

Hopefully she'll be as good a sheep work dog as she is a family companion!

I hope this doesn't offend you, but every time I see "Star Dog," I think of this:

I'm told that it says "StarDogs" in Russian, but for those of us (at least some of us) who don't read Cyrillic letters, it looks like it says something else.😁
