Panning/motion tips needed
This bird flew nearly directly above me, and I wasn't expecting it all. Unfortunately, I had my camera set on aperture priority. I'm new to photography. Started about eight months ago only because my job began to require it when our staff photog left. We ended up replacing him, but I decided to try to hone my skills today by going to the zoo just in case I need to start shooting again.
Anyway, I'd like the more experienced to chime in with some panning tips and maybe some more appropriate camera settings for a situation such as a bird in flight. Man, the more I look at this the more I begin to hate that background.
Thanks for any help.
