It is a challenge to photograph flying birds for a panorama. After some practice the success rate goes up (hopefully). Basically you shoot a burst of images as you try to cover the area of birds flying you want. Also panning as you shoot, going in the direction they are flying. I found that shooting with a wide angle lens for a large group of birds flying does not give you as much detail as shooting them with a telephoto lens for a panorama. A pretty high shutter speed is also helpful. You might have a few touch-up areas or overlaps to fix once you assemble the base Panorama.
The panoramas below are a group of Black Skimmers on or close to the shoreline. This is a little easier because most of them are not moving, but again you might need a few touch-ups here or there.
Excellent results Reed!
Thanks Belinda! Sometimes it is fun to try different ways to photograph your subjects. Sometimes they work! Sometimes they do not. But it is fun to try!
I agree with that!
Wow, awesome panaromas, Reed! Amazing work!
Thanks Donna! It usually works, just takes a few practice shots to get a feel for doing them!
