Nice shot but try a slower shutter next time out.

Thanks for looking guys, interesting viewpoint Peter though for me the blurred props give a feeling of motion and im comfortable with that.

I think he's suggesting more blur, the regular airshow shooters like using slow shooter speeds to give a much more blurred prop. typically, about 1/250 or 1/320 gives pleasing blur but it can take some practise to keep the aircraft sharp enough.

If this isn't your usual field of photography, then great shot and you are probably better using the faster shutter speed - at least for the first few shots of each aircraft.

I stuck to similar shutter speeds for my first airshows, as the planes were a bit too soft using slower speeds at first. Now, I try and shoot prop aircraft at 1/250 or 1/320 and, although I still have a number of unsharp shots, the ones that work are more pleasing. If I am shooting a plane I haven't already got shots of, I tend to do the first couple of passes at a faster shutter speed to ensure that I have a sharp shot, then slow down and go for more prop blur.

Keep up the good work.

OK thanks for explaining Sandpiper, your right i usually shoot birds so i go for fast shutter speeds to freeze the action.

Trying to broaden my horizons a bit, so C&C welcomed.

I seem to remember that the display line is quite a way from the crowd at Sunderland, is this shot cropped much? What was the focal length? In my opinion you went with a decent shutter speed, any slower and you may have got absolutely nothing useable. These aircraft do look good at less than 1/250 s , but it takes a lot of practice. I agree with what sandpiper said, best to have a few at faster shutter speeds so at least you know will get a few sharp ones.

Or, just take pictures of jets :)

Hi Paul and Stephen, i actually took this at Tynemouth as the Lancaster flew by.
I saw quite a bit of the show and it looked great so i hope to go too Sunderland next year, and get a bit closer.
