I’m so Into Raptors!

They are fast, they are loud and they do things in the air that planes just shouldn’t be able to do! I love watching Raptors, the F-22 strut its stuff. I never tire photographing them either. Shooting them is easier than you might think. Shooting with the D4, 200-400VR2 w/TC-14e in Aperture Priority at f/5.6, just pan and click. Now here’s a little trick for you. If you’re not sure about your panning skills, not sure about your ability to compose and pan, simply rip the camera on each pass. The plane has to travel out, travel back before it can perform again giving any camera plenty of time to empty its buffer to do it all over again. Until you refine your skills, you can let percentages work in your favor.
