I’m not sure if I did this exactly as the mini-assignment intended, but these photos demonstrate how I often obtain photos of moving objects (like birds). I spotted the Turkey Vulture soaring above the trees at Whitesbog and tried to guess where it might glide next. Happily, I was positioned so that the trees made a perfect frame and, luckily, the Vulture decided to glide between them.
I didn’t have a lot of time to frame the shot, so I centered the area between the trees and took the top photo. Back home, I cropped the photo to obtain a nicely framed Turkey Vulture positioned near a Rule of Thirds sweet spot. This is pretty typical example of how I photograph birds, particularly those in flight. Let me know what you think.
