Bird AI on OM-1 but not shooting a bird
3

I spotted someone asking for an example of a non-bird shot using the OM-1 and remembered this when trundling around our local harbour on my mobility scooter

I was shooting in my now usual AI bird focus, pro cap but with small single spot selected which to my delight instantly focused on this a dog having a roll then charging up to me with a big grin on its face (not my dog, just a friendly pooch )

I've just checked on the focus point in Olympus workspace, it missed the eye in both cases, with the rolling dog it appeared to be around 2" above the eye and with the running dog it was between the right (as we see it) eye and the ear, so close, got the face but not the eye.

Nothing special, just trying to fulfil a request

Shot in raw then a quick pp in LR classic

So much to learn, so little time left to do it!
