Hey Guys and Gals,

If any of you are thinking about joining Scott Kelby's National Association of Photoshop Professionals group, now is the time. My buddy Scott has some great discounts going. The monthly magazine alone is worth the annual subscription price, then there's all the tutorials and training stuff.

If you're thinking about it and decide to pull the trigger, use this link:

And NAPP has plenty of member discounts, too. In particular, be sure you're subscribed before you buy/upgrade Adobe products, as the discount on a Creative Suite upgrade will just about pay for a year of NAPP.

On Thursday I stopped by the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex to see how the new exhibit for Atlantis is coming along. I have to say that seeing an orbiter shrink-wrapped was quite different.

I typed up a little story on my blog along with some more photos if interested. The exhibit will open in July.

Nice work, Walter. I like how they designed the orbiter's display stand with pivots and put it in a bank for display. Would have enjoyed seeing the process whereby they got it to that final position, too. Maybe someone will have shot video and will produce a 'making of' video about the exhibit.

You guys need to check out this series of aurora time lapses shot with a 5DII:



Just spectacular stuff. I found it from a thread on the Canon board:

Mark,
That is some spectacular imagery in the time lapse. Looks very cold though

Hmm, I'm beginning to think that the "booby prize" that everyone thought the crew cabin trainer was, is actually going to be more fun than gazing at a shuttle, given the plans they have for the CCT:

I can't be 100% sure if that is the exact same crew cabin, but way back(1984?) I got to crawl around one of those at JSC. They had it in the vertical I think at the time too. sadly no family shots of it exist and I was 6 at the time, but I remember it cause for that day I was an astronaut hehe

Definitely sounds like it would be worth a trip to see that once complete

Brian, way cool that you got to crawl around in one. Hoping they at least do like they did for SAM 26000 and glass off but let you peek through and see everything, even though that's a pretty tight walk through.

In other news, looks like Honor Flight may have hit the 100,000 mark this year

Having had the recent fortune of being inside Endeavour, a "pretty tight walk through" is an understatement. Granted I am 6' 4", but standing on my knees my head could touch buttons when I was on the aft flight deck.

I would agree, they should have the glass off, just thinking a walkthrough won't be doable as much as it would be rockin' to have.

Would like to post a few more from my first show. Was wondering what shutter speed works best for full circles. Does it depend on type of engine as I seem to do better with radials, maybe something with the way the props are geared. C and C will help. Used to shoot a lot of college Football and it seems a lot of what I learned there helps with this. Already looking forward to the Blue Angels April 27 and 28 in South Carolina.

Going AWOL for the next three days... Happy New Year to everyone, and may at least one of your resolutions come true!

I would also like to say Happy New Year to what has to be the best family on the net.

Welcome, Michael! Happy New Year to you too.

I'm sure someone will chime in with a more definitive answer, but yes, the shutter speed you need for a full disk really depends. In my limited experience, I think the modern acrobatic planes are probably the easiest. Followed in general by single engine warbirds, then the multi-engine bombers. For me, by far the toughest is a Corsair.

I am wondering, where they found plastic wrap, to cover the Shuttle? How they made such a big piece, is another question..
Happy new Years to all, even those that are AWOL.

Thanks for the answer, I can already tell that this aviation photography ca be complicated, a lot to learn. So many masters on this thread who really amaze me with their work. From Mr. Wilson through the rest I have a lot to aspire to. Really getting hooked.

Under the heading of our mantra..."Do Ya want the shot........or not?!" I just landed from a 1.2 hour air to ground shoot...Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! The answer to our question is always "Yes!!" 39 degrees and 20kts. out of the south does make you think just a bit longer prior to answering though.

I know I've said it several times, but I really think this was my last assignment of 2012
