Hello new to the board and to photography, this is my first post here. I live in Anchorage, AK and I've been taking some photos of seaplanes taking off and landing at Lake Hood Seaplane Base. Any feedback or tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for taking a look.

Welcome to FM! Nice looking image. You might want to consider cross posting in City, Street & Architecture, there a thread for your type of images.

My feedback: Excellent. Great panning with a shutter speed slow enough to get a 360 prop blur. Your photos don't look like you are new to aviation photography.

Thanks a lot Ray, I appreciate it, I've probably taken around 3000 pics out at Lake Hood, these are the best so far. I will repost this in the other thread in City, Street and Architecture.

Nice work Andy. Looks like you have been to a panning master class

What shutter speed are you using when you do this? Experience for me says 1/125th to 1/160th works fine on props... if you can keep steady.

I'm using 1/100 or 1/125, I've found thats the best. I tried 1/60 and 1/80 and the background blur is awesome there but its hard to get the entire plane in focus at that speed.

Andy,

Very cool, welcome to FM. I have been there several times and have flown with Rusts several times. I will be up in Alaska again this September (next month), can not wait...
