Thank you so much, I was out in the patio at "Silly O'clock" taking pics of the morning rush with LHR inbounds and overfilghts heading from the Atlantic over to Europe.

P.


Some stuff.

Contemplating going to this night shoot at a local aircraft collection http://www.shuttlewort​h.org/events/night-shoot/ (external link) and would welcome some advice on how to get the best shots I can. Is it best to use the shutter priority setting or go fully manual? Thanks.

I would prefer shooting before full night & would use manual, but only you can decide what mode to use.

I’d use a monopod and shoot 1/30 with auto ISO using TV mode. I’m not a manual setting guru but find this works for me in low light shooting. Do you have a good low light lens?

For aircraft, I use my wide angle 10-22 lens so I can get really close shots.

I've been to a nightshoot at Old Warden before. You'll need a tripod for sure. I think in AV to get to iso100 I needed an exposure of about 5 secs.

The other thing I found was that the lights they used had a horrible lime green cast which made finding the white balance tricky. Hopefully they'll have an aircraft out with a bit of grey on for you to help with this.

PM me if you want me to send you some shots to have a look at the exif.

Yikes, 5 seconds is definitely tripod territory. I was thinking low light and this seems like night time shooting.

Grounded due to bad weather over the target...

Collings Foundation B24 Witchcraft is grounded in Norwood MA due to weather between here and Glens Falls NY.

Steady rain but it was a good test of my Canon 6D MK II and the old 28-135 lens.

Sunset at the airport with an aircraft taking off. I wasn't paying attention, or I could have taken a burst and caught the plane in the middle of the frame.
I was shooting through a wrought iron fence with my lens, so it was very hard to change angles.

The tarmac in the foreground was wet from a quick rainstorm, so the sunset was reflecting in the puddles.

I like it with the red behind it. Too bad that you couldn't have aimed a tiny bit to the right!

unless you take an .avi and do a frame capture the odds are that even with a Canon 1D you might have gotten even further off. yes I use burst mode but it is not a be all and do all the 70D gets, what, 6 or 7 frames a second, like my 80D or 6D, and you can be way off, very often getting the absolute perfect framing is a matter of luck. You did it the right way and came about as close as possible.

Very nice shot.
