Hi Mark - I like the first shot But, eerrr umm - didn't we miss the boat on the second one.:-)

Maybe... I like to experiment a bit! I have tons of sharp shots of 'em, but was illustrating under the forest canopy, they take off and it's like a blur to witness, and even photo; I think only a combo of a 400 F2.8 @ ISO3200 could actually capture one in those conditions. But I have fun trying anyways :lol:

You allways have to take care that the picture is well exposed .
In that case iso 2500 is not a problem at all, especially with the 1DX.
With Topaz denoise the last noise in the picture has gone.

Most of the time when i am after a flying dragon, you have to look if there is a pattern the dragon is flying.
Once I know where it is appear , I prefocus on that spot.

When the dragon comes back on that spot I will see him or her blurry through the viewfinder.
I never use autofocus in this case.
The thing to do is slowly manual focus on the dragon.
The 1dx becomes handy with its 12 Fps.
I´ll keep turning manual the focus ,while i am firing for a second 12 Fps.
I know that the first three pictures will not have that crisp sharpness, the same with the last three.
But in the middle of the 12 pictures one or two have to be razor sharp.

Weja

A very good and succinct explanation.

The only thing is, your manual focus technique has to be good.

Backlighting with some evening breeze going on, sun was right behind the owl. + you do get a ton of help in bokeh if you purposefully put obstructions in the frame between yourself and the subject. I think doing so adds some depth, and with a longer shutter speed, those tree's will end up as a blur. The challenge of course is getting your subject in focus while everything is in motion while also balancing the amount of diffraction in the backlighting. In landscapes, many would shoot this at an f16+ to control the diffraction, but I don't keep the tripod with me much anymore. Also you get a more scattered diffraction with a lower fstop in these instances. The key is: experiment.

It took me a while to work out that top shot, didn't see the owl at first. I love it, one of those pic's the you really need to look into. Great shot.

The first of so many images to process from the 2019 Grand Junction Regional Airshow. First time seeing the Blue Angels and it was quite a thrill. This event was specifically the reason that I purchased the 100-400V2, and it's performance on the 7D2 and 6D2 never let me down.
