Your light meter must have fun shooting that.

That is, if he shoots in auto mode. I always shoot in full manual (habit from the F-1 classic days) and instead measure the exposure in several scenarios (e.g., various sectors of the sky), test it, and apply accordingly. I just wish I also had my vision from the olden days (as well as the focusing screen of my F-1!) so that I could also focus accurately! My T3i's focusing skills are pretty weak.

Doesn't help that the viewfinder is so small.

I don't think that even manual mode can get things done when the sun suddenly reflects off the shinny aluminum just as you take the shot.

I guess I wasn't as lucky (or as good) as you then. I have a few like this from a similarly reflective plane and a few from a very shinny CF 18 (all shot in full sun) recently. Tv mode at 1/160. Plane is known as Quick Silver. (SOOC) Photos leading up to & after were OK.

Quick Silver.

Just lucky I guess....also used centre weighted metering. Only had one pass to get this right as it was departing.

Two shots of Jim Tobul's F4U-4 Corsair, taken recently at the 2016 Geneseo Airshow. My first time using the 7D2 and 100-400II. Noticeable improvement in AF performance and overall IQ. I think I may have overcooked the first shot by over sharpening.

A little bit - especially the sky. Usually, I don't sharpen the sky - select all of the sky, then select/inverse to select only the aircraft.

Do you mean by masking in LR - either by the brush tool or by the slider control in sharpening?


P.


Some stuff.

No, I'm using Photoshop. I use the little magic wand to make my selections of the sky, invert that, then apply sharpening only to the selected areas. I don't use LR, so I don't know if it works the same way.
