Image stabilization provides great assistance when handholding a camera in low light. While IS can help with panning motion, general subject motion cannot be stopped with image stabilization. Use the subject motion to your advantage - to show action.
Never stop watching the background - it is important to your composition. Note the dog coming over the horizon in this shot.

The eye is that of a black American Quarter Horse.

Lichens-Covered Oak Trees Lichens-Covered Oak Trees
The woods takes on a new look when it is raining. One example is the tree bark that gets dark, making the Lichens really pop.
It was actually raining when I took this shot. This camera and lens are not weather sealed so my weather protection solution was to use a large re-sealable bag. By positioning the lens at the opening, I could open the bag when I wanted to take a picture. Looking through the bag to see through the viewfinder did not offer the greatest visibility, but it worked. And the price was right.

A Dozen Wet Daffodils Picture A Dozen Wet Daffodils Picture
Bright yellow daffodils bend over in the rain. I oriented the camera from an aerial view so that all of the daffodils would fall within the sharp plane of focus.

When shooting car pictures, be sure to move in and capture the details along with the big picture.

Tightly Framed 55mm Portrait Tightly Framed 55mm Portrait
For a pleasing look at your subject, do not shoot from a position too close. Although this lens can focus close enough to frame the subject much tighter than in this example, you will start seeing usually-not-desired perspective distortion.

Anemone Flowers Anemone Flowers
It is hard to take an ugly picture of an anemone flower.

Spring Mayflower Picture Spring Mayflower Picture
Early spring is the toughest time of the year for landscape photography where I live. A lens that focuses closely will allow you to capture the earliest spring arrivals.
This image represents the minimum focus distance of this lens with a widest-angle-available focal length.

Hyacinth flowers are filled with attractive compositions. Move in and take advantage of them.

Wild Garlic for Dinner Wild Garlic for Dinner
Looks like wild garlic is on the menu at the Pallet House. And someone is happy about that.

Dog in the Woods Dog in the Woods
A slightly-motion-blurred Golden Retriever moves along a trail in the woods. The distant mountaintop is level in the frame with just a small amount of the gray sky included. The tree on the right helps frame the image. The trail leads into the composition about 1/3 of the way into the frame and a large lichens and moss-covered oak tree anchors the other side.

A blue hyacinth adds background color to this just-opened spring flower.

Lichens and Moss on Oak Trees Lichens and Moss on Oak Trees
During a rain, the lichens and moss on the oaks in our woods appears vibrant. In this picture, I aligned two small white pine tree trunks between the three larger tree trunks.

The Sky Picture The Sky Picture
One of the easiest ways to get an attractive image is to include only the sky in the frame. An infinite number composition possibilities exist up there. Pick a day with good clouds. Then adjust contrast and saturation during post processing.
