Panning+FPS = The Shot
Birds in flight is simply a great photographic pastime! It takes gear (D4s / 800mm on the Gitzo 5561SGT w/ Wimberley Head used here) and it can be any body, any lens but you’ve gotta have solid panning. You’ve gotta have the camera set to CH (Continuous High) and willing to hit the button and continue to hit it. And do it over and over again. And then in that sequence recognize this one image that captures that moment for you that you want to share. And that’s it, all it takes to capture that one shot.
