Hi, everyone. I was excited to find this thread as I want to learn more about shooting air shows. I went to my first since taking up photography last fall and I "learned what I didn't know", if you will. I ran into the limits of my equipment, knowledge and skill. Hoping to work on the last two and rent a lens to help with the first.

I'm impressed with the shots people get just sitting near a commercial airport. I assumed something like that would bring a trip from the local police, but it looks like it's perfectly normal. I'm going to give that a shot to get myself more opportunities. Thanks for all the ideas.

Here are my very pedestrian shots. First two from the 2012 Cleveland Air Show on a day of lousy weather (redundant, I know - I already said Cleveland). The sky is only blue in about half the shots and I learned quickly the limits of the ISO on my 40D as well as the aperture and reach of my humble 55-250. But I had a great time and the shots blew away anything I ever took home back in my P&S days, so it was well worth it. These are cropped about as far as possible, hence the lack of detail.

Last one was a learn-to-fly day at a small local airport in northern Ohio. Cirrus SR-22.

Thanks to everyone for the opportunity to learn!

Not sure if this counts as aviation...
Well, it has a plane - it flies. It has a kite - it flies
Anyway, that's my story and I'm sticking to it...haha

Having shot next to Jay for a while now, I can tell you he is making the 300 f/2.8L IS look good, not the other way around. We are talking talent boys and girls - plain and simple :D

Suspected so, Jeff. Kudos as usual, Jay. Not too shabby yourself, Jeff. I'd be proud to meet either of you face to face and watch. :)
