p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · An airplane or two...


Here are some of the selects from Oshkosh (aka EAA AirVenture) 2008, the largest aviation event on Earth. All shot handheld with a D300 and 200-400 f/4 VR, sometimes with a 1.4x TC.

1. Wiskus and the LucasOil biplane go in for a low pass

2. Patty Wagstaff rolls hard

3. Gene Soucy flies, Theresa Stokes walks... both in their sixties.

OK, I'll stop now.

C&C welcome and appreciated, the more the better. I like these already, or I wouldn't have posted them, but I like improving my images even more.

Great shots.
Two things It is a MARINE AV-8B. That is a B25 not a B24. The 24 was a heavy 4 engine bomber.

All of that with the lowly discontinued D300. Wow, who would have thought?

Great Series Rodolfo. Please share some more.

I love Sean Tucker, and Oracle. We went to an airshow at Andrews near DC a few years back, it was cold..very cold and damp. The Thunderbirds could not fly, or hardly anyone else because of the low clouds..Sean Tucker did, and put on one hxxx of a show under the low hanging overcast. Thanks, Sean for that day and Rodolfo...thank you for a great bunch of plane photos. Wow.

You know how it is... those of us who aren't out there doing really useful stuff in Afghanistan, gotta at least try to do something interesting. Soon as you get your butt back here, we'll go shooting (cameras or guns) and out for a good meal. And you'll join us at Oshkosh, right?

Thread title is false advertising. That is more than two airplanes.

Thank you.

D300, yes. 200-400, yes. Shooter... uh, not really.

Go check out our Mustangs thread if you want to see some real skill. I just work here.

Thanks, guys! Aviation falls under the "wildlife" category of photography for me: they move fast as hell, they're unpredictable, it's kind of hard to get good light, there are technical challenges (handheld only... tripods need not apply), they take really long lenses, and they're God-awfully beautiful. But it's also of note that most aviation people are among the nicest folks you'll ever meet, and a great crowd with whom to hang out.

You are, of course, correct! The first was a slip of the mind, and the second a slip of the finger. I've fixed both, with apologies to the Marines among us. Thanks for noticing.

Each and every one is spectacular. Good to see these outside the overly-long and dense "air to air" thread. Aviation photos deserve their own forum.

"20. Venezuelan DC-3 portrait."

Is this retro-fitted with turbo-props? It's a beauty

Bloomin' excellent series, really excellent, thanks for sharing.

Shot #3 is my choice as the most "artistic" of the bunch.

Yep, the DC3 has turbo-props.
Great series, what metering setting are you using, matrix, CW or spot?
Just curious as I see that you have + exp comp dialed in and if I did that, I'd be blowing out the whites big time.
