My first portfolio assignment for the photography class was "Spring Fever". There wasn't much instruction, just take pictures and use that as the theme. So, I bundled up the camera and the tripod and spent a morning at the dog park with my mother-in-law and her two dogs.
The tripod was ditched (and carried) after about 10 minutes. I just couldn't keep up with the action using it. I think it's going to require some getting used to to actually use it for something more than moon shots. A friend let me borrow her monopod, but I'm still finding that I can't get used to using it. I just have to do it and stick with it.
Most of these were taken with a 1/2000th of a second shutter speed, so camera shake wasn't much of an issue.
