Showing the background and zooming into character

Hi everybody,
I am trying to figure out how to show a background and pan through it with narrator speech going on while I get to my MC.
Every time I go through it I am zoomed in too closely. I would like to be able to show the whole background then zoom in.
If anyone has any good tips I would appreciate it. I really want to learn!

INT.BOXSEAT
@pan to zone 3

&NATALIE stands screen center in zone 3 AND NATALIE is idle_stemware_worried_loop

@add Champagne Flute Filled to NATALIE

@transition fade in black in 3

@pause for 2

@pan to zone 3 in 3

@zoom on NATALIE to 400% in 3

@NATALIE is sip_stemware_worried

    NATALIE (talk_baby_sad)

reset the zoom at the beginning of the scene, then use

&pan to zone 3 in [T] THEN zoom on ### in [T]
