Little Otto is Still a Puppy {pet}

Had a nice change of pace this morning!  I photographed little Otto, an 11 month old pooch.  His Mom and I met at my most favorite park, Larz Anderson, in Brookline, MA. The sun was trying to peak out from behind the clouds, but it was good to me and stayed where it was giving me nice directional soft light.  We headed with Otto and his favorite ball to a shady side of the park with abundant leaves.

Otto, being the puppy he is, LOVED playing in the leaves!  I gotta say, he tested my focusing skills!  I rarely use the setting, but keeping the focusing drive on Al Servo helped out a lot for this shoot.  With the lens constantly focusing and re-focusing as little Otto bucked and played helped me to keep up!  I was able to snag his very quick looks in between the diving, hopping, and chewing.
