Have fun at Alliance everyone. Here's a shot from my trip to Vancouver Island for Canadian Thanksgiving:

Sorry Erich,

On the bright side, any of you who have been around me while we are planning, holding together and executing these missions, know how stressful it is. Knowing that we've scrubbed, albeit disappointing, will allow me to do the fifty other things I'm tasked with at the show, and enjoy you all to boot.

We might just stir up an air to air or two at HQ on Thursday, who knows?


Hope it didn't sound like I was complaining, just disappointed. I've sat thru enough formation flight briefings to have an idea what you must go thru trying to pull one of these together. Besides, all good things come to those who wait.

Hi Brian,

This had nothing to do with the readiness of DD and crew, and everything to do with a very influential client's schedule. Unavoidable, just one of those things.


Just got the email saying that, you are officially faster than our own Jim.
















Yup, first shot of the morning, handheld 1/2 second exposure blur

Thanks Jeff. It was a little bit of luck. The fog was so thick that we couldn't go out fishing that morning, so I ran in to town to get fuel for the truck instead. I recently discovered a storage compartment in my truck that allows me to keep my camera in the truck at all times and relatively secure. Anyway, I was heading by the cove and looked over and there was the boat with a wall of fog right behind it. I backed up down the road to a spot that I could pull off the side and hopped down the embankment to get the shot.

I'm in the process of doing a wall display of canvases at my mom's house on the island, and fairly certain that shot will be one of the larger ones, likely 24x36.

Just don't look too closely at her face, looks "bruised" a bit.

I'm probably out for tomorrow due to meetings, so you guys relax and get together. We'll begin festivities Thursday am. Looking forward to our time together. Things will be very different when we can light up our own B25 and summon our own subjects.


Where do we get together if you're not at HQ, Jim? I was counting on a place to hangar the Remos...

Just getting back into things after a bit of a break. I've started shooting at Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome again after an 11 year absence (politics) and have been noticing a problem. It could be that I am more aware of prop blur and my desire to achieve that has caused other issues. What I'm finding is that I need 1/125-1/160 sec as max shutter speed for about 1/3 to 1/2 disc. While 1/60 would be better, it's not a good idea, at least not right now. I'm shooting with FX (full frame) using a 500mm with 1.4 tc (700mm). The AF is doing fine, what I think I'm running into is subject movement during the exposure. The majority of my shots are from the front, either head-on or just off to the side. As a result, panning doesn't really come into play. (The biggest difference is that years ago, I had field access so shots were more from the side than the front.) I do better with the slower a/c, the pre-WW1 buggies that just hop. I'm guessing that they do about 30mph max. The others get up to 60-70mph and I'm thinking subject motion is what is biting me.
I'm curious what the "experts" think and if there is a solution I'm overlooking. The sad part is, last show was Sunday past, so I won't be able to practice until next season.
Here's a typical shot from my best vantage point:

I think you are correct in your subject motion thought. At the slower shutter speeds any little input, a thermal, a little aileron or rudder, will cause that. You can tell the difference between camera motion and subject motion by looking at the grain sharpness, if nothing is sharp, the problem resides at the camera, if the grain i sharp, but he subject appears a bit "3D-ish", then it's the subject.

Sorry about the politics, I hate that, but it pops up everywhere. The older I get the less patience I have for it. I'm getting to the point where my default is to quietly distance myself at the first hint. I realize that, because my opportunities are plentiful, that's a luxury not everyone has, but I find walking away is like cutting off oxygen to a fire.

The Welker sick ward is full up. My better half is ill, the grandkids are sick, and I'm playing Florence Nightingale without the proper credentials. I've got everyone down for an early nap so I decided to play with an image before I make my next rounds.
