Awesome, what is the red button on your finger? That tether seems like an excellent idea in this situation.

The shooter in the frame is Scott Slocum from Texas (I was simply a guest along for the ride)

The button is a push-to-talk switch which allows Scott to speak directly to the subject pilot over the radio (some air to air guys prefer to relay directions through the photoship pilot.)

EVERYTHING in the photoship gets tied down (including the photographers)

You also remove rings, watches, hoods and filters. And, if you're in a situation where your subject will be directly behind you, you also empty your pockets because you don't want anything exiting the plane and potentially striking your subject or damaging an engine (critical when shooting jets.)

Never, ever thought about those details! :shock:
... and what the consequences could bring

I wasn't there, but a shoot a couple years ago involved enthusiasts onboard a twin-engine B-25 shooting a certain red, white and blue T-38 Talon flown by the son of a rather prominent Texas buisnessman. No names, but his initials are Ross Perot Jr.

Both pilots were almost forced to eject when a set of hearing protection muffs and sunglasses exited the B-25 by accident and were sucked into an engine.

I carry a sizeable amount of liability insurance but I still would not want to have to face the subject pilots knowing something of mine almost knocked them out of the sky! :shock:

Air To Air photography is not something you "dabble" in. Good people have died trying to get that one extra shot or because they tried to pull something off that was unexpected or wasn't briefed in advance.

Well, then!

My "setup" isn't near as fancy as a lot of what we see here, but:

I recently moved into a place that has a yard/neighborhood that is pretty active with "critters", and I've been trying to get shots of the various ones: squirrels, neighborhood cats, racoons, and of course birds.

Well, the birds tend to be small and hang out in a couple trees across the fence in another yard and tend to be shaded so I decided first to attach a Kenko 2c TC to my 100-400 lens, set up on my trusty ol' 30D, and then to attach a Better Beamer flash extender. That way I could get "reach" (800mm) and some light! The challenge was they were still small, I had to crop my shots, and something to note is that with the 2x TC I have to manually focus, Oh Well!

So, here's my setup (taken with the 5D "Classic"):

A crop:

The scene showing the leafless apple tree in the background:

Note the shady area in the tree -- that's where the birds tend to hang out. Here's a shot without the flash/extender:

Well, here's a shot with the flash:
