Technique for acquiring BIF in frame
May 12, 2012

Having some difficulty acquiring BIF in frame with tight area to work in. Once that is done I don't have an issue.

Using a D700 and 300mm 2.8 D with 1.7 TC. All on a tripod with gimble.

Limited in visual range, in other words can't see them coming from a distance. Maybe hand held would be better for acquiring, but I don't want to spend hours holding this rig.

Just a few pointers on quick acquiring would be great. Position of head in relation to camera etc.

Thank you.
