Caption This Cow | Looking for photography tips

Sometimes a person just has to walk out of the office and break up the day. I’m pretty lucky to have some projects that take me out in the pasture this summer, and had an opportunity to catch this shot. A few posts ago, I wrote how I had no photos of me actually with the cows. Does this one count?

This photo now needs a caption. Can ya help me out?

I also had a chance to capture some other shots. Photographing cows while trying to get the best camera focus isn’t always an easy task. I’m not looking for the best photography with this project, just the clearest shots.

Any tips/suggestions?

Every time I try to capture a tag, the cow moves….

Here’s another one that wanted to get close and personal

  1. Up close and personal shot is great! Good composition and at least on my phone has good focus. Fly season probably isn’t the easiest to capture still ears 🙂

    1. I actually have a Canon PowerShot for this project, but any comments are appreciated. Usually have my Blackberry with me. One frustrating thing with it is landscape shots or something that’s not very close is very pixelated. What are the best shots to take with my BB camera?

  2. Caption:

    Cow, “Why has Ryan Goodman turned his back on me? Have I done something to offend him?”

  3. For a caption: At last! 🙂

    See if your camera has a burst mode. Does it keep taking photos if you keep the shutter button pressed. Usually they’ll snap off 5-10 photos in a second or two. That helps with moving objects.
