Pomona Valley Model Airplane Club had their Wings over Chino event. I figured I would have a look and practice panning. Thought I would get in a bit of practice before Miramar. Feedback is welcome.

Cheers, Steve

They look just like the big boys. You did a great job capturing them.

The shot with the moon is nice.

They sure do look real. Nice job!

The moon shot is definitely cool!

Thanks for all the kind words. I like the moon shot. I never did get around to panning.

Cheers, Steve

nice set, I would imagine RC model planes are harder to shoot than real ones

Nice work Steve. If you can nail these little guys, the real birds should be a snap! When are you going to Miramar? I'll be there all day on Friday if you're going to be there.

Real nice set. They look like they are a much larger scale.

Thanks for the comments. These planes had wingspans from 3ft to over 6ft. I will be at the Semper Fi Chalet on Sunday.

Cheers, Steve

I could see a pan (motion blur) for the low level shots being incorporated?

Thanks Mark. Ed, I was tracking the planes and shooting, but I was shooting in shutter priority with my speed at 1/800 or 1/1000. When I am attempting to pan, I use the same tracking motion but lower my speed to 1/160. I do not know if my understanding is right or wrong, but that is my definition.

Cheers, Steve

Excellent series, the B-17s, P-47, and P-51 were my favorites.
I am having trouble with getting the right speed to avoid stopping the props. Looks like something around 1/320 or so. Any suggestions you care to share?

Thanks for the post,
Steve

These are terrific. And the pictures are great too!! Looks like you have the panning down, as well as everything else. Very nicely done.

Thanks for the kind responses. Big Bear is having their airshow this weekend. I hope to get some nice shots.

Cheers, Steve
