I know that this blog has the occasional lurking photographer now and again, or at least people who know a damn sight more about cameras and photography than me. I'm still wandering around with the manual looking puzzled. I'm interested in comments regarding camera settings on flight shots, take these two for example from yesterday
Now neither of them are particularly well focussed but there is a certain amount of blur in the wing area that I seem to be getting all the time. The Crossbill was shot at f7.1, 1/400, ISO 500; the Whinchat f5.6, 1/250 ISO 800. Should I be shooting at faster shutter speeds? Higher ISO or both? Do you set your camera specifically for flight shots in anticipation? Any advice gratefully received.
