Good to have you back Al! Blame me, I am an instigator of cool things to do.

Small world, A new friend, the owner of the hobby shop I am supporting , donated a beautiful aircraft to the cause at KTKI. He and his Dad built a replica of the airplane his Grandfather flew and maintained for Braniff Airlines, their fourth aircraft in the fleet. We met up this morning and hung the plane in the FBO main lobby.

Is that the OSHA approved technique for that scissor lift?

Hey, he's not standing on the top railing, so it's probably an approved use...

Yeah Steve, but based on that board crossing the top rail i bet he was!

Is that just a static Jim or R/C?

Jim,

Great photo of Weston on the mound. How did you capture that? 800mm from the fence in center field?

Actually a very understanding pair of umps who suggested that I walk out to that spot and shoot........ Those big white lenses get you into positions nothing else can. That's with the 500.

Viewing all these amazing shots in this thread, so I guess this would be the best place to ask a question..
Blue Angels coming to town in two weeks, will a 70- 200 II or 100-400 & 7D do the job.. I also have a 5D III and a TC 1.4 II. Never shot aviation.. I presume in TV, not sure what the best shutter speed would be.. I live in the sun belt, so there should be bright skies as well..
Appreciate your guidance..Much appreciated ...


I use a 7D and the 100-400. If you're shooting jets then keep the shutter speeds up; 1/400 and quicker is good; 1/1000 or more if it's bright enough. Some folks put it on AV for jets and let the camera pick the quickest speed available. I'll always end up forgetting, so I leave mine on TV and change as required. Oh, if you want blurry background panning shots on takeoff or landing, you'll need to be slower anyway; 1/200 or slower.

For prop planes you can bring it down, 1/250 or slower will get you some prop blur, but be prepared to take many shots and lose a lot of them, especially if you've never shot aviation before.

Other than that; welcome! Have fun, and post your results :-)


Appreciate the in-tel futurshox...
