About the Image(s)

I went to my first air show earlier this week. I was a little leery about going for photography but several members of our photo club encouraged my participation. In short it was a great day.

The organizers followed the schedule to a tee and many aspects of flight took to the air. This image was captured around 4:00 PM as it opened the show, using Nikon z7ii at ISO 400, f/13.0 at 1/640 s with a 24-70mm lens.

I really love this picture ! You got a great sky, it really shows the airman/woman, and the flag is perfect. Scary yet really patriotic. Exposure is great. I would have liked to see how far off the ground they were. But maybe the person would have looked too small then. I think you had a good day !!   Posted: 07/11/2024 12:13:49

It's amazing that you caught this with a 24-70mm and I guess that you've cropped some to get the close view. I wonder if it would have made a difference to open the aperture to say, f8 and get a faster shutter speed and/or lower ISO. The light seems bright enough to handle the different settings.
Regardless, it's a cracker shot Peter. The colours and contrast are really pleasing to my eye.   Posted: 07/12/2024 01:06:34
