Eurofighter Typhoon

By TheAviator
This image was taken at the RAF Waddington airshow in July 2010. The Eurofighter was performing a high speed pass and I panned the aircraft then pressed the button hoping for the best. I am quite pleased with this one.

There is a distinct lack of sharpness & detail in this image.

I note that you panned the shot, Thats a good start.

Here are some tips that might help in the future.

First shutter speed, If your using a lens at 300mm make sure your shutter speed is at least 1/300s, Faster might be better, Lets say aim for 1/500s.

Aperture, Where possible try and keep around f/8, Here your lens should be at its best.

In order to keep the two parameters above, You may need to use a higher ISO than usual, Really depends on how much light is available.

Your camera has a good high ISO performance, So it would be safe to go to ISO 800, If needs be to keep shutter speed and aperture at acceptable settings.

Lastly technique, When panning, Always follow through, Track the aircraft well before you shoot, When its framed how you want, Press the shutter button nice and smooth, But continue to pan as you do, Certainly until the shutter has fired.

Its a bit like " Clay Pidgeon Shooting " LOL....Smile

Better shooting in the future...!!!
