Thanks to everyone for all of the tips:

Very nice. If possible, I would like a little bit longer shutter times for blurring the main rotor. It's mainly #5 that suffers a bit - it looks like the helicopter is just hanging in the air. But the others could do with some more blur too.

Most of my photos from the flight have rotor blur. There were requests to capture both rotor blur and no blur at all. Therefore, I shot mixed in some fast shutter speeds to stop the rotors. I preferred the shots with blur but, since the client requested some without, I complied. :)

You gotta do what the client wants! Very nice work here, the lighting is great and I like how you did it all down low. Even with the busy background (trees and all) you kept nice separation of the helicopter from the background. Nice and sharp all around. Great work!

There's room for three more here!

#6! Geez! I don't think I'd have the guts to shoot at 1/50 sec. Very nice.

Nice work Scott. What gear did you end up using?

Thank you.

Everything was shot with a 5DC. For the ground stationary shots, I used both a 24-70 and a 135. Ground-to-air was a 24-105 and 70-200 and all the air-to-air was with a 70-200 2.8 IS. I brought the 24-105 up with me (basically sitting on it) but never switched lenses during the flight.

Thank you. I was on the ground for #6 so that helped a lot :)
