Merry Christmas!

"Misty, I don't see Santa over here, do you see him over there?"

"I don't see him over here either Oreo."

"Let me see if I can smell him. I think Santa would smell kind of smokey, from spending all that time in chimneys."

"I don't know what a chimney is, but I think Santa may have left us something over here. "

"Did you hear that?"

"Mommy says Santa left us our presents inside the house! I sure hope there is a new ball for me," Oreo says. "Let's Go!"

"I sure hope there is a special cookie for me," Misty says. "I'd sure like to share them with all the dogs who read this blog! I hope Santa made a visit to all their houses too."

"Oh yeah, I guess I'd share my ball too," Oreo says. "But they'd have to catch me first!"

Happy Holidays From Misty & Oreo!

How do you get such clear action shots. Every time I try they are blurry. I have the camera set of action shot but it doesnt help. Diana

I set my camera on sports mode, auto focus, then I usually just hold down the button and take a ton of shots (I try and focus along the way by hitting the button halfway). Some come out blurry, some are clear.

I do think the further away you are, the clearer the photos are.

Then, I end up cropping the photos. Luckily with the high megapixels you still get a good quality photo even after cropping.

You could always try and play with your shutter speed settings. My sports mode is set at 1/500 sec. You could try raising it to a faster speed (1/1000) and see if you get clearer shots.

Hope this helps - I really am an amateur!
