Took me a little longer than I expected to run these through post but they are finally done. This was my first air show and I'm moderately satisfied with the results. I think the clouds/haze through me off the most when trying to expose for the plane as I ended up with a lot of bright white backgrounds. I also didn't realize how slow most of the props turn, thus the propellers are more frozen than I intended.

Great Series!

The Harrier driver and the Raptor in the vertical are best in show IMHO.

ETA: Reading more closely this time, I see this was your first Air Show so change Great Series to Outstanding Series! Really, well done!!

Good shots, except that I see you chickened out on getting some prop blur! :D

Eh. I think it's an appropriate amount. Maybe a little more, but not much.

Nice work, ESPECIALLY for your first time and under less than ideal conditions.

Don't mind him, tends to think he's top dog around here.

Yes it was.

So, did you not try for more blur, or did they just not come out as you'd hoped?

I only asked if a 400mm lens was too long, not how to shoot.

As I previously stated I didn't realize how slow the props turn and didn't intend to freeze them as much as I did. I started dropping the shutter but never got down low enough for some of the planes. Of course no two planes had the same prop RPM which resulted in even more adjusting. Next time yes, I will go lower with the shutter but for now I wanted to get a decent set under my belt for my first time.

Of course no two planes had the same prop RPM which resulted in even more adjusting. Some of the air show pros get great results doing that. I usually just try for something in the middle of the road.
