Behind The Lens

Location
At the Red Bull air race at the Royal Ascot race course near London.
Time
Not 100% sure what time of the day it was but probably in the early afternoon!
Lighting
It was shot from a long distance using a 500mm lens at a high shutter speed so I couldn't really do anything to mitigate against the lighting other than in camera (shutter speed/aperture/ISO),
Equipment
Canon Eos 7D Mk II, Canon 500mm L - handheld so no other equipement used.
Inspiration
Whilst I like aviation photography, I don't tend to attend events such as the Red Bull air race but wanted to take some photos that refelected the power and grace of planes in flight that really showed the spead and agility of these aircraft, so I decided to attempt to use panning (for the first time) to show the speed of the plane as it sped by during the race.
Editing
Not really in this instance - I cropped it and applied a little bit of High Pass in Photoshop (which I do for most digital images) but as far as I remember, that was pretty much it.
In my camera bag
I don't normally do sports events and the equipment I normally have in the bag is geared more towards wildlife/landscape photography. In this instance, all I had was my Canon 7D Mk II, a 17-40mm to capture crowd shots (to set the scene) and a 500mm L which I've now replaced with a Sigma 150-600mm Sport as I've found it to be just as sharp but a lot easier to carry (more compact) with my other gear, and a Velbon monopod (which I rarely use as I prefer to shoot handheld) but it's handy to have just in case I need some extra stability and is the lightest monopod I've ever owned.
Feedback
All I can say is experiment and practice. Panning is something that you can only really learn by doing. Set a slower shutter speed (not necessarily super-slow but perhaps less than the maximum length of the lens - I think with this shot using the 500mm I dropped the shutter speed to around 1/160) to try and give a sense of movement in the background, lock focus on a specific part of the subject you're taking a photo of and try to keep that focus point on the same spot on the subject, whilst moving your camera from left to right/right to left to follow the subject. I find autofocus better for subjects moving at a distance. Don't worry about capturing all of the subject perfectly - my photo had some ghost trails (particulalry behind the tail fin) which I quite liked as they gave a greater sense of movement. Finally, don't feel the need to get it right in camera first time - take as many pictures as you need and importantly try to have fun doing it as that's what photography is all about.
