Synchronized Racing

OK here is another greyhound picture for those who love them. Took this at the Caliente track in Tijuana, Mexico with a Nikon D2x and 80-200mm lens. Would like to say that it was my incredible skill and timing (yeah right) that captured these two dogs in perfect unison with their right front legs extended, but it was just plain dumb luck.

Even when shooting fast moving subjects I’m not a motor boat shooter like some who just press the release and hold it down while the camera is on autofocus. I like to follow focus and watch for something interesting to happen and then click. But even still when these dogs are running at you at 45mph it is hard to make sense of what is going on and that is where lady luck will smile on you every so often and give you something better than you could have imagined.
