any tips? i was trying to get some pictures of some (slow-flying) birds the other evening, and failed miserably. i wasn't in focus, i couldn't keep a bird on the screen...they were only pigeons, too!
i've got a canon 1100D, and was using a tamron 70-300 lens, shooting in Tv with a shutter speed of 1/1250 (i think), continuous shooting mode. erm...don't remember if i changed my AF to AI servo, so that probably wasn't helping a lot. i was aiming for one of those 'bird frozen in flight' type things...
in fairness, i am a COMPLETE beginner, and this might have been aiming far too high for my capabilities. i'm better with stationary things(!). i'm guessing it's a case of practice, practice, practice, but any tips or hints are gratefully received!
