- With longer lenses, it helps a lot to have a tripod collar. Much harder to balance a long lens when your support is at one end, rather than the center of gravity.
- You may get better results by putting one foot behind you and bracing the monopod against it, and/or hugging the monopod somewhat to yourself.
- If you use a tilt head, you can loosen it slightly to adjust your angle while panning. This isn't a great solution (it's no gimbal head), but it works in a pinch.
- If you get down on one knee and set the monopod to a corresponding height, it can help add stability to low-angle shots.
