Quoting Cadet57 (Thread starter): My question is, how do i grab a moving plane? Do I pan with it and shoot or just click as soon as he gets into the frame? Also tripod? Again, never really done moving so IDK...
To grab a moving plane I normally set my camera to Aperture priority, about f/8 (depending on the light). But as a general rule, you want your shutter speed to be equal or higher than your focal length. When shooting a plane, pan with it and then when you get the shot that you want press the shutter release. As far as a tripod, it depends on your camera set-up and your personal preference. I shoot at 400mm frequently with an image stabilized lens and I normally don't use a tripod. If you are shooting with a long lens, you'll probably want to use a tripod. Good luck and have fun!
