Photos from the air show

November - 2005

I just posted the images from last weekends air show which was very fun to shoot. Next year I'll bring a monopod though to make tracking with the 300 a little easier. Nuge is trying to switch his shooting eye which brought up some conversation about keeping both eyes open when shooting. Generally I don't, but for the parts of an air show where jets are closing on each other at ~900 MPH you kinda have to. Even if my camera had a fast motor drive you only get one shot at these. By the time a second shot would go off the planes would be well outside each end of the frame. image
