Nice angles! Too bad about the engine failure in #4. Good thing he wasn't aimed at you! :D

Shooting planes is new to me, just figued something that fast needs a decent shutter speed , i now see you need the motion blur to make it look like its not about to drop out of the air, i looked at another thread and somone suggested 1/80 to 1/200 for good motion blur , i thought you'd get everthything blurred at that speed, maybe not , thanks for commenting though

The trick is to pan well enough so that the moving aircraft remains in focus, but the prop is blurred. It takes a steady hand and lots of practice.

I grew up in an area with lots of crop dusting, so I enjoyed the photos.

that was the same advice I got last year before my first airshow with a long lens and it was very useful. I pracitced at the airport tracking Dash 8's to work on blurring the prop a few days leading up to the show.

Like many I used to freeze the props too but I also enjoyed the photos of a rather odd little plane. I get to shoot a lot of "dead stick" planes at the R/C events but in real aviation there shouldn't be very many, and when there is one it's a big emergency.


A skill is developed through constant practice with a passion to improve, not bought.

i got a picture on my flicker page of a P-51on a low highspeed pass with a full disc, had to shot at 1/80 sec. handheld with a 100-400 lens.... now that was fun!
(i won't post it here because the sensor was filthy and really don't want everyone to make comments about it.)
