Hi Brian:
F/8 and be there is the motto around here isnt it?

Glenn

Based on the lighting I was guessing it was closed down a bit more, but had to know for sure. Lovely shot

Tried a little experiment today that I think I'm going to use tomorrow for a local fly in. Put .9 (three stop) ND in the drop in filter holder of both my 300mm and 500mm lenses.

Did this for three reasons:
1) Better Subject Isolation (at prop shutter speeds, DOF is way, way too deep)
2) Cleaner Backgrounds (another aspect of ultra deep DOF)
3) Less Visible Dust (the bain of being at f/11 and smaller)

If you'd care to see some test shots I did this afternoon, go here:
http://crosswindimages.com/p684339541/e54128cb8

...and then check out the next six in that gallery. The titles contain the settings and other info.

Feedback Welcome.

Just as an example, this was at f/4.5 instead of the usual f/8 and smaller...

Interesting. I noticed at Road Atlanta during a early, early AM practice I was at f/22 for some stuff. I thought I had left the ISO cranked from the night before. I look down and I'm at 100, not a sweet spot.

This has me thinking, has there been through this group or otherwise, a "full disc" settings listing?

Example
P-51 1/40th @F8
Pitts 1/90th @F8
V-22 1/15th @F8
or whatever the case may be in order to achieve a full disc.

Just thinking a go-to book might useful to those like myself who have not yet mastered this fine art.

Glenn Buddy, you are on a roll! Rarely, if ever, have I seen someone come into their element so quickly and adeptly. My guess is, you have been thinking about this stuff a lot, and then began to create the opportunities to execute your thoughts. Impressive across the board my friend.


+1 - Your twilight "The Kings" image is wonderful.

I spent a little time out on our new runway this evening. Been meaning to do it for months. I shot this DC3 at Last Time and on the journey up to OSH. It's based at KTKI now.

Thanks Leo! There would have been more, but I had a five minute shoot at 6:30 a half hour away and had to bolt.
