    Re: Photo-a-day

    In view of the challenge presented on another thread

    First a couple from my Flikr account, which was part of the documentation for a course I took last year

    Paris last year

    DSC_3115

    Backgarden last year

    EXPDSC_3994

    Most recently, for the aircraft buffs. Thursday at Farnborough. In the face of a hangover and some appalling light.




    The frames are as they came off the camera, with the exception of white balance on the last one being cooled off a smidge.

    Flying spiders are a pretty nightmarish proposition!

    Lot's of fun to be had with your new toys, get creative! Would love to see the results.

    Here's some flying of an altogether more gentle nature.

    To err is human. To really foul things up ... you need a computer.

    I went on the Saturday and it flipping tipped down and the light was not that great too. Luckily,I had taped over the camera and made my own rain cover.

    I wanted to go on Sunday as it was actually sunny,but my mate could only make Saturday!!

    Some from the airshow. Using an old A200 and a screw driven Sigma 135-400MM lens(also known as the slow one) hand held.









    The props on the V22 seem to move quite quickly. Even at well under 1/100 they would not blur.

    you mean slowly? 1/100 with fast moving props = disc

    first 3 images could do with some 'lift' as they seem pretty lifeless, but well done for putting up with the slow focusing

    Brain fart moment,I meant slowly - the shutter was at 1/80.

    It was raining for most of the day,so the light was pretty awful and they do need more "zest" but I suspect Mr Noise will start rearing his ugly head.

    I used to shoot with film before(Konica Impressa 50 and the higher ASA Kodak Supra ones),so perhaps I should not be complaining!!

    Still have not got around to scanning most of them too. I am such a lazy bones.

    Sadly my inspiration to take photos of aeroplanes tends to disappear with the available light. By the time the Super-Hornet took off at the end of the programme, I had long given up. My 28-300mm struggles to produce a sharp image at the distances involved. Without a bit of colour and some texture from the sky, I am left with, as my disinterested good lady would put it, just another blurry grey plane on a flat grey background

    The T50 shot was the best I managed on the day and it's not exactly great The crop on the nose and tail made it stand it (to me). I have been trying to improve my composition and I like the way the crop helps lead the eye to the pilot - at least I think it does

    I wanted to go on Sunday as it was actually sunny,but my mate could only make Saturday!!
    The infuriating thing Thursday was the weather was glorious when we arrived but we had commitments to meetings. As soon as the flying started in the afternoon, the weather turned and only got worse.

    Oh well, hopefully better luck at Paris next year.
