    Did a photoshoot with my wife's new Teacup Yorkie pup. Ruby is about six months old and an active pup. I had tried to use my Lensbaby as that is my newest toy to play with, but soon learned that a manual focused funky tilty lens system is 'sub-optimal' to capture an active puppy. Switched to my ultra wide 17-35 Tammy and that was much better. Lighting was using two OCF Godox Lithium V860 speedlights, one for fill fash with Aurora's "Mini-Max" bouncer and the other with a long snoot wrap. While the lithium battery is much faster recycling that the traditional 4 AA's it still takes a few seconds (maybe 10-15) for the one shooting 1:1 power (the snoot) which means you miss some of the best moments, for e.g. I'm sure the key snooted flash did not fire on that tongue out shot - just the half power fill flash. With those Lithium flashes, if the power has not fully recycled it does not flash at all. I also had these on HSS which I've learned burns through AA batteries much quicker than non-HSS.

    Thinking of getting LED continuous lighting, particularly for shooting active pets (and anything else that moves) Will post a query about that in another post. I have read there are pet owners who don't want speedlight flashes as they think this may be bothering the pets sensitive eyes. (I wonder if this is especially true of cats as their eyes are suited to low light at night for nocturnal hunting?) I've not noticed that any of my pets, dogs, cats, birds, avoid the flash so maybe it is just not worth worrying about???

    All shot in "M" ... I'm getting used to shooting manual - it is coming.

    Some great shots here, expecially 3 & 4! #4 is cropped closer than I would have done... I usually try to get the full ears of my pup... but still a wonderful shot. Too bad the snoot didn't fire on the tongue out pic. Did you leave the ISO on "auto"? Or were you fiddling with that manually, too?

    RE: #4 I missed the ears in the original, the top of the crop is the top of the photo (that one by the way was with a Lensbaby hence the F 1.0 - it was the Edge 80 optic).

    ISO was not set to auto. Although I do try that from time to time. I didn't use my light meter - mine only goes up to 1/500th of a second shutter speed and I'm shooting well beyond that. It was a trial and error means of adjusting lighting - either by increasing or decreasing flash out put through the trigger (Godox X1) or changing the ISO (often the easiest way to change a stop or two and maintain the lighting ratios.
