Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.

Thanks! It was taken near the Coca-Cola building (Ga Tech area).

Nice. Looks like you were on a rooftop or balcony? That's over by the aquarium too isn't it?

Hey everyone, I just created a new group on Facebook specifically for Middle Georgia Photographers. It's called the Middle Georgia Photographic Society (external link).

Check it out!

Anybody been to the air show in Warner Robins (external link)? Looks like it's right around the corner. I'm contemplating heading down for it. Any tips or suggestions would be welcome.

I may go. Looks like fun. I went to the Chicago Air Show years ago. I'd love to go to another air show. It'll probably be the 29th. I have a wedding to shoot on the 28th.

Never been to that one. I would love to go but can't this year. Last time I was at an air show I rented the 100-400mm and loved it. I used Tv mode for props to try to get some blur and Av mode for jets. Also brought a wide-angle lens for static displays but wished I brought a macro too for detail shots. For the Blue Angles I watched videos of their show for that year before going to the air show so I would have a better idea of the routine and know what to expect. Then you can anticipate the next move and be ready for the shot.

Here's a good page with lots of info: http://airshow-reviews.com/photograph​y.html (external link)

I'm planning on heading down to it. I haven't been to one at WR, but have been to the ones at Dobbins a few times.

Tip one: If you havent been to an airshow before, go both days. Day one - enjoy the show, and get a feeling for the displays. Don't aim to take a lot of photos, as you'll miss the experience by looking through the viewfinder (especially the blue angels). Day two: As you'll have a better idea whats going on, you should be able to get more + better shots.

Tip two: If you have a backup body - take it. I have my 100-400 on my 7d, and a 24-105 on my 450D. Make sure it all fits into a small bag - as backpacks / large bags arent allowed. Swapping out a lens while the show is going on is a pain in the butt.

Tip Three: Plenty of memory cards. You'll go through more than you think, even though you will probably junk 70-80% of the photos.

Tip Four: Sunscreen and ear protection. You'll be outside for a LONG time, and the planes are very noisy....

Tip Five: Bring a chair, and something to do for a few hours or sitting around. If it's like Dobbins has been - getting out will take forever, that it's much more pleasant to just sitdown, and wait for the queues for buses to drop, then join the line.

Tip Six: Show Center - Work out where it is, and try to sit somewhere where the sun will be behind you as much as possible near the end of the day when looking towards show center. Not sure what the setup at WR is, but dobbins tends to have you shooting towards the sun a lot.... I've found that moving during the show is not a good idea - once you've claimed your spot - if you move you'll end up with way too many people in the way.

Tip Seven: If you dont have a zoom lens out to 400mm - then rent one. I'd recommend the 100-400 (though be careful you might end up buying one after renting! - I did). I find a zoom much more useful to frame stuff, and you'll probably need the 400mm to get any reasonable close up shots. If you do rent a 100-400 - make sure you have a day before hand to play with it - the push pull zoom can be off putting to some, but to me it's great for following aircraft in the air.

Daniel

Wow, thanks for all the great info, Daniel! Trying to shoot an airshow is on my list of things to do. I'm just not sure if I'll make it down this weekend. I do have family in the area. I'm hoping my brother will want to go to since he's into aviation stuff, but I doubt I can go both days.

I do have a 100-400 and a 7D, and that's what I was thinking about taking. I probably will take a second body as well if I end up going. The lens/camera combo is still TBD.

I also see that PDK is having an airshow on May 12th. I have a prior commitment that afternoon, but I doubt I could beat the convenience of that one. :)

I've wanted to shoot an Air Show for a long time and I heard the WR one advertised on the radio yesterday. Would love to go to it but I have to shoot at Road Atlanta this weekend and can't pull that off. And the weekend of the PDK one I have to shoot the Drift races at Road Atlanta too. Looks like I will have to wait and see if Dobbins is possible for me. I kind of miss the freedom I used to have to go shoot whatever/whenever but I'm trying to get somewhere in my photography that's been a goal of mine for years and I'm too close now to stop the quest.

Doug - they have "Wings Over North Georgia" in late September up in Rome. A nice thing about that show is they are selling photography passes which gets you in early with unrestricted access to the aircraft and show-line viewing. I wish Dobbins would do that but I suppose that's the difference with military bases. I think the next Dobbins show is 2014 from what I heard. I'll be at RA too this weekend and again for Drift Atlanta.

I went last year and it was a neat little show but I couldn't stay the entire time. It was so hot and I started feeling dizzy after a couple of hours so I got out of there. They moved the show up to an earlier date this year but unfortunately put it right on top of Drift Atlanta. For me, drifting trumps any air show - it's just way too much fun!
