We did experience a "first" on Sunday. We were shooting from what our British friends would probably call "the very naughty field". The Blues made an extremely low pass right over our heads and the power poles a hundred feet from us did a fourth of July routine with showers of sparks falling to the dry field below. Sparks, dry four foot grass and 25 knot winds.......what could go wrong? We were planning our exit strategy about the time this shot was captured........

Now this one, shot in the clear crisp air Friday evening (oops! Was I supposed to be paying attention to the light painting tutorial ?), was with the 800mm and two tripods.................

Anyone see the Hasselblad in this shot?

This cool plane was at our local airport and was glad to get some shots of it.
Built in 1937, the Flagship Detroit is the oldest flying airworthy DC-3 in the world.

Outstanding Niall! Thatís one of those times when Iíll bet you could have shot that until there was no light left, just mesmerizingly beautiful and powerful.


Absolutely, except: I filled a 64Gb card and went back to the car to get a new one and thought, as I sat in the relatively warm, and certainly not windy, car: 'I am freezing, soaked to the skin with salty water, exhausted from walking on shingle in a gale and from trying to hold a 70-200mm lens still; my eyes stinging from the salt spray, and with a two hour drive home,' and I thought - No!

I went out to Long Beach, CA last week to photograph this large private jet. It holds 19 passengers and has a range of 10 hours! I'd hate to pay the fuel bill on it.

Hope everyone is having a great week.

So YOU were the ones out there!

And that transformer fire ( or whatever ) was quite odd.

Hi Zane,

Actually there was no transformer involved. The Blues made the pass so low that between the wake and the heat, a couple of wires swung together and it was the 4th all over again. I had Chandler with me so my first concern was making sure the dry grass and winds weren't conspiring to surround us. Fort Worth's first responders were already sitting there but they ended up calling in reinforcements because it built pretty quickly.

Sorry I missed you, we need to have lunch soon.

I will be shooting an air-to-air stunt photography this weekend.

I was wondering,
0. if I should bother bringing in DSLR or just a gopro
1. what lens should I bring?
2. what straps would I need to prevent my camera from banging around the aircraft during flight?

I will be flying in the airplane doing stunts. The plane is a Super Decathlon.

I saw where Ernie sent you over with your question. This is the place to get the answers, just need a little patience while the experienced folks are offline (I'm not one of them).

Maybe you can elaborate a bit to get the best advice - are you looking to photograph what you are experiencing in your aircraft, or are you trying to photograph another plane flying in formation with you?

What does your pilot have to say? I would think he or she has the best idea of what you'll be going through, how hard it will be to hold on, and what he or she wants to potentially be flying around in the cockpit?

Good luck, expect someone that really knows what they are talking about to chime in soon.

Mark

Is another airplane involved?
