Terrific work Steve. Image #3 is my current favorite; however, I reserve the right to change my mind as you and Jay post more images. Are you using Slocum's A-36 as your gun ship?


Thanks, Jeff. I'm partial to #1, myself. The soft early light really shows off the state of the Wildcat's surface finishes.

Jay and I were the shooters on the first flight of the day in Scott Slocum's A36, lifting off just after dawn. The subjects were to have been the Oscar and the Wildcat, but the Oscar developed radio troubles and we launched with only the Wildcat to shoot. The Oscar pilot jumped in the Corsair and chased us down 30 minutes into the flight; we had only one circle with both subjects before heading back in to swap shooters. There were five flights, ten shooters in all; the two warbird pilots refueled twice, Scott once. Quite a logistical feat.

Man! I will have to rethink about posting after those shots. Shoulda checked out what was ahead of me.

We don't always have great skies and light at air shows, and sometimes it peeks out, just for a bit.......

Typical Air Show Sky........for me.







But I got a second chance.......Avenged!

That's it, I've lost track of how many times I've pushed that "like" button over the last 4 pages or so.

I think I'll just go back to playing with my Etch-a-Sketch, you all have raised the bar so high.

Yes, Glenn: I'm using the D810's awesome new Auto ISO function, which you can program for thresholds and limits. Then I shoot in Manual mode, select shutter and aperture, and let the camera figure out what ISO to use to achieve what I want. Along with the new Group focus mode and the awesome new buffer and write speeds, it's just what the doctor ordered.

We flew a second A2A mission in the late afternoon light, this time a two-ship with Super Dave Mathiesen and Jon Melby. Here, Melby is just forming up while Super Dave shows us the top of the wing.

Oh, and I almost forgot our third A2A mission, yesterday, as subject this time! I put Jay in the right seat of the Pipistrel Virus SWiS and mounted the Garmin VIRB Elite out on the right wing. Remember, Objects In Fisheye Are Closer Than They Appear.

By the way, here's the first good use I've found for Lightroom's Radial filter: color correction at the margins of the VIRB's frame. #1 is SOOC, #2 has the Radial filter applied with a -50 bias toward green.

I've been shooting most of my D810 work at ISO 64, kind of a throwback to my Kodachrome days. Every time I shoot with it I am taken with how quiet and velvet smooth the camera is. I ordered another one yesterday.

Please don't tempt me please don't remembering some great Tomcat shots I have seen from David F Brown I asked him if they were digital and he said no Kodachrome 64 and scanned on the computer i was very impressed.
