I want to try to get most of the plane sharp in G2A so I shoot anywhere from 1/125-1/320. 1/320 is only for the tiny plastic planes, and aero acts that really turn the engine and prop hard. WWII big iron is never faster that 1/250.

As we are into the "Scottish Widows" team at the moment, these are at 1/500 but it's probably a bit fast, whilst the Dakota is at 1/250 (but not a brilliantly sharp image - probably due to camera shake because it was a long way off, rather than motion blur)

Brian's wonderful Stearman image is a great example of the "full disc" goal. Not everyone can get them, no one can get them all the time, for some it's not even a goal, some like the effect, some don't care. Therein lies one of the beauties of our passion and trade. Kind of a "from each according to his/her ability, to each according to his/her vision" to paraphrase good 'Ol Karl.

Because of Brian's vision and skill at the instant the Stearman was captured, one can see something I don't ever remember seeing prior to this image, a perfect shade sketch of the radial engine on the back of the prop, very cool! Well done Brian!!

Not to mention both of the right wings! I puzzled over that shadow on the prop disc until Jim's note made it obvious...

Love the watermark 'stenciled' on the side of the fuselage, too, Brian

Oh, and did you see the orange / yellow “feathers” on the trailing edge of the main gear? Super job Brian.

Here in the UK I mostly find myself shooting G to A into a flat grey sky. In the past I've often ended up busting a gut trying for a full disk only to be rewarded with an invisible disk!
From now on I'm going to reserve silly shutter speeds for helicopters – getting any blur into those big two blade Bells is hard work.

I tend to go for as much prop blur as possible, no matter the situation. I like the motion blur I can get, and I enjoy the challenge. I lose more shots than I gain, but when I get the one it makes it all worth it.

That being said, I have learned that the gearing on the different engines will give a full disk on a Merlin (P-51) at 1/100, but that same setting will leave gaps on an Allison (P-40) or R-2800 (Corsair) powered airplane so I'm constantly adjusting depending on what is flying by. Number of prop blades also affects this, which is why Brian's shot with a 2-blade Stearman is not an easy one to get!

Aircraft with internal props are much easier to photograph

Ain't that the truth Jeff! It's easy to get a full disc on the Global front stages Whenever I have a jet subject air to air, it's a whole different set of rules, and much less pressure. (That is , of course, if everything that is in the aircraft, remains in the aircraft……….. )

Kids day at HQ, they are all bundled in throws laying around watching a marathon of Monsters Inc, Despicable Me etc. Chandler and I are working on the R/C Park Flyer Cub and his Nieuport kit. What this place needs is a fireplace…hmmm.

Thanks J-A

Good example of old fashioned drive, Glenn created that opportunity from nothing. He knew they were going to be in town, did some research and learned where the previous stop was going to be, contacted the powers that be and proposed his photographic plan. Well done Glenn!

There was a little bit of the man upstairs putting me and the sun in agreeable spots as well Thank you for the kind words on that.

Thanks! I wasn't totally sure what I would get on the reverse side of the disc when I shot it but I knew at the very least it would show up given the sun angle, the shadows were a nice bonus. With the watermark I try to put that in a place that looks a part of the photo when I can, this one worked out nicely for that.

A number of our Arizona Aviation Photographers (AzAP) group went to Tucson for some night photography at the Pima Air & Space Museum. While this is a semi-annual event for our group, it was my first time. We had nearly a full moon, clear skies and some ambient light from Tucson. It got a tad chilly as the hour grew late, but nothing a warm coat could not handle. Here are a couple of my efforts at long exposures. It was a fun way to spend an evening with some talented shooters in a non-typical aviation photography environment. I have a lot to learn

Thanks Donald. Actually, I believe that was a left-over from a meteor shower we had the evening before.

I'll second what Donald said on the B52, and raise him with a fabulous on the Hustler shot - the star trails are a really nice touch.
