|Last Flying B-29 Super Fortress|
Now, if you are both into aviation and into photography you may end up with sensory overload. I have only gone through a fraction of the images I took but here are some of my favorites so far. I was lucky to have some cloud activity which is almost always a good thing for photographers.
There is a very difficult aspect to photographing prop driven planes. That is if you use too high of a shutter speed then the props are frozen. The key is to show the props moving. To do this you have to maintain a shutter speed of 1/250 or slower. It is very difficult to get a good sharp image from a 300mm lens when the shutter is so slow. In order to attain a sharp airplane but still have blurred props you have to pan with the aircraft. It took me a good bit of time to get the hang of this but once you do the images look so much better.
