Spent a couple of hours on the ramp with this F7F Tigercat and none other than Steve Hinton as a very gracious host. He was headed out to Ft Lauderdale from Portland Oregon.
Over the past 28 years of commercial flying, I have run into him 5 or 6 times and his down to earth friendliness has always struck me as being a truly genuine person.

I have entered an on-line photo-competition for sport photos at Photocrowd which is judged by a judge, but also by on-line vote. At the moment I am lying 9th out of 213 images in the on-line vote with 17 days to go. You can either "pass", "like" or "love" an image - few more likes or (preferably) loves would be a great help.
The image is of the Round the Isle of Wight yacht race 2013 as below, and the link to vote (you don't have to vote on all images, you can stop at any point) is

Camdenthrasher,
very nice series on your blog. I'm particularly fascinated by the ones where it looks like you shot at the sun and the clouds have a real heat haze quality to them.

I'd love to hear more about how you captured / processed those.

Thanks,
Gero



The ones I think you are talking about were indeed shot basically into the sun. With this in mind, I shot them severely underexposed so that I could bring out the detail in the sky and the smoke, and leave the planes as silhouettes. The light/high cloud cover gave some great texture in the sky. In processing, I brought the exposure down a bit more and added a good amount of contrast make the image overall a bit more punchy.

Thanks. Someone referenced me to this thread so I figured I would post something. I shoot motorsports for a living but the aviation stuff is just for fun when I happen to be near a show when I'm shooting a car race somewhere. After shooting Reno Air Races last year, I've been on a little more of an airplane kick lately.

Here are a few more from the airshow at MacDill this weekend. Hoping to catch the Blue Angels practice this wednesday as well before St. Pete GP.

Camden - Your recent images are wonderful; thank you for sharing. Is there a way to subscribe to your blog? I'd appreciate being able to keep up with your terrific work. Thanks.

BTW, your partial image of top half what appears to me to be a B-52 is a stunner

I don't have a subscribe function at the moment, but if you go to http://www.camden-thrasher.com/blog/ you will be met with a giant stream of everything I've shot recently...and then if you finally reach the bottom of the page then you can click to the next one. It's a bit of a goofy setup at the moment, so excuse that.

Keep in mind the majority of what is on my blog is car related...so I hope you like that

Nothing with wings right at the moment but I did just spend three days up at Arizona's version of the "Big Dig"

18-frame stitched pano from Hopi Point


100% Crop from the center. There's a little detail in this...

Jay,
when you do an 18 shot pano like that, how much do you have to adjust/correct for cloud movement during the time it takes you to shoot all 18 frames, or is it not significant enough to matter. I would think that the cloud movement could also impact lighting across frames.

Thanks,
Gero

Largest pano I ever did was 147 vertical frames (yes, 147, it was 300,000 pixels wide, did it as an exercise to see if my computer was up for the challenge). It took me about 1 minute to take all the shots. I didn't worry about cloud movement because the adjacent frames in the pano would be close enough to not matter. If I was doing a 360 degree pano, that would certainly be something to worry about, but in a pano like this, not really an issue (at least for me).

There was little to no wind (at the surface) and given that I'm banging away hand held taking just enough time to try and leave something recognizable from frame to frame for CS6 CC to align, I don't think cloud motion was a problem.

The biggest challenge in processing that pano was getting the exposure to balance from side to side for both the sky and they terrain. The sky was far more washed out at camera left and the terrain was more washed out at camera right. Layers for each with gradients running in opposite directions more or less cured that problem.

Now this you can call a Pano In The Z Axis...

Five bracketed frames, stacked, masked and then I went in and picked out the next brighter areas in each frame by hand...

TYVM...

Edit For Top Of Page...

Since the client has released this image publicly, I'm guessing (hoping) they won't mind if I do so here.

This is the Jack Link's Beef Jerky "Screaming Sasquatch" jet-powered Waco that will be campaigned this airshow season by John Klatt Airshows and flown by Jeff Bourbon. Through one of those "know someone who knows someone who knows someone who passed along my name," I had the opportunity to shoot this beast at dawn a few weeks back...



It's precisely for shots like this that I keep the amazing Canon EF 135mm f/2L in my bag. It generates amazing bokeh wide open and yet it's tack sharp.

Jay, your last image is absolutely beautiful. I don't think that there are any more superlatives left that I can use to describe your work.

Beautiful Jay! I guess you are "one of the top three wildlife photographers in the world" now. I've heard that it doesn't take long at all to skyrocket to the rare air once one makes the jump................. But then, I already considered you one of the top in our field. Somehow it seems much more satisfying when the honor is bestowed by someone you respect, and not one's self................................

11rdgr88, welcome to MA2A, home to a family of aviation photographers. Please feel welcome here, and post more when you can. Now you can sit down and buckle up because the flight will be leaving shortly. Soon, you will have your favorite beverage, and the in flight movie can begin. Be prepared though. The movie is 4109 pages long and growing.

Regards, Colin

Sorry to say, ISAP is a no go for me. Far too many irons in the fire at the moment. I had a four hour drive early this morning and booked five new assignments during the trip! I have made certain (behind the scenes) that my folks will be well taken care of in my absence however, and you know who you are.
