Thanks for the welcome & you're right on both counts. Having been a regular at the Transportation section at POTN for years I know some of the names & skill set already BUT I see a lot of names I'm not familiar with . There aren't many full scale air shows in the area so I've been honing my skills on the Radio Control side of aviation for a few years. I've decided to expand on several fronts so I'm looking at images in several of the sections here.

Shooting RC, even big scale RC, is much tougher than 1:1, so you should be in good stead. Let us know how we can help.

That seems to be Jay's attitude too, and although it's a challenge I've been able to find the right combo of gear to get good results and it's certainly been a great way to improve my panning skills. I've become the official (volunteer) photographer for all the local clubs plus I've now got the right contacts to pretty much get flight line access at any event I might want to attend. these R/C's could easily pass for full scale most of the time based on the comments I've received at POTN or when showing them here at home.

Welcome to MA2A, Larry. You have a lot of catching up, but then that is just part of the fun.

As the son of a career RCAF member a HUGE thanks to all of those involved in such a project. We're all so very deeply in debt to those who serve to protect our freedom THANKS from your northern neighbor.

Good edit Jay.


Cicopo: nice to see another Canook in here. I lived in Ottawa for 14 years.

Playing with a free trial of Oloneo HDR software. Moving all the sliders around can really cause some weird looking stuff. Here is one and the original on my site now.

Time to clean my sensors again, especially the 1DX. The upper left hand corner is always the worst spot. Some action within the mirror chamber seems to toss a preponderance of crud in that quadrant.


It's ridiculous how much crap my 1Dx gathers. Doesn't seem like dust either..lubricant? Necessary with the insane shutter speed capability?

Race 74 rework. Halo around the tail is driving me nuts trying to fix.

A West Jet 737 on short final into KPHX on Friday afternoon. It was landing during a fairly severe thunderstorm that was producing a very heavy mix of rain and hail. It was amazing to see how much water those turbo fans will pump. It appeared as if the thrust was more liquid that air.

Just to make sure she had the pilots attention, Mother Nature provided a substantial crosswind.

Westjet received their 100th Boeing 737 a little while ago. It's official tail number is C-GAWS, but I'm not sure how to track it...it has a hash tag on it for the 100th

more just useless trivia than anything

Those sure would pass for 1:1 Larry! Great job!!

Jeff, That's a very cool capture. I'm assuming you were standing in the same thunderstorm I admire your tenacity! The one way in the background is the icing on the cake.

That was probably Roel arriving at KPHX onboard BA 747.

Just saw that Navy Tac Demo for El Centro has been scrubbed

Thanks Jim. Despite my attempts to stay dry, wet and cold was the order of the day. This is how we get vapor shots in AZ. One part pea sized hail, one part heavy rain, and one part a 30* drop in temp. Mix them together liberally and you get vapor trails

Speaking just between us, and the zillions of folks who lurk here, and I'll probably get blasted by a handful of ISAP complainers, but here it is. There's something in my business acumen that tells me teaching your potential competition, in bulk, techniques that will save them a decade or more of getting up to speed, isn't the brightest thing one can do.



Jim,

As a new guy trying to finally get started in commercial photography I struggle with many of the same issues you describe learning how to light, attract clients and gather enough gear to do an effective job at it but I completely agree that no one should be spoon fed all the tricks of the trade. Your shots have consistently been top notch and your experience shows in every one of them. I learn as much from my mistakes as I do my successes. In many ways, someone that earns skills through self evaluation and trial and error will place a greater value on those skills and be able to adapt to changes. Point me toward the mountain, don't climb it for me.

Yes I want to have a grand client list and make those jaw dropping shots and I am sure that I will one day - but I will have worked for it. Not that we all don't need a little help and support once in a while, just prop me up, point out the failure, give a bit of advice and send me back out to continue the journey. Trust me, I have realized that having a passion for photography and bring good at it are two vastly different things! And yes, I am that lurker that posts little but learns a lot just but being a small part of this community.

Keep up the good work Jim. You are leading a unique group here, very few spaces on the web have the character contained by this collection of men and women.

Jeff, you could always come up north & shoot them through some blowing snow.

That's a very busy looking flight line. I assume it's a hub for a few airlines.

Great angle. I've got one from the side with less vapor but I prefer yours.
