oday was weird weather wise. I had to deal with blowing dust,clouds and sun. It wrecked havoc on me trying to get everything right.I was going from under-exposing one shot, to over-exposing the next. I feel I am getting better with the jets, but the prop planes still give me trouble. I think part of it is the lense can't get close enough to follow the plane, I noticed the closer the prop plane was, the better. I am pretty happy with how the jets came out. I was really wanting a picture of the F4 Phantom, my grampa flew one during Vietnam and that was what got me hooked on planes. Enough talking, heres the pics:

F4: Sounded great, louder than the F16, but quieter than the F15.

F15 Eagle: This thing sounded amazing, shakes you to your bones.

I liked this picture, it seemed to make the F15 look even more evil.

F16: The quietest (if you can say that lol) of the 3. They (the Thunderbirds) were just doing a survey flight today, the next few days they will do the formations.

Where did you take those from? The ground? Another plane? Noise! I used to work on F-4s in the Marine Corps. Didn't think there were anymore around.

im too lazy to look at EXIF...were you shooting w/ the 70-200 f/2.8?

great shots, its hard to get good crisp shots of planes...especially with the speeds these go and the maneuvers they do.

Great pictures, why so much noise though?
Like I said, the weather was crap, so I had to edit the RAW file and you get noise sadly :(

The jets are awesome, but the Unlimiteds are the sh*t - piston-engine prop planes going 500mph 50' off the ground.

Yea, they are freaking insane!

Awesome shots man... What sort of modes do you use for these, shutter priority? How were you compensating for the over/under exposure?

That's a skill I badly need to learn
For most of these I used full manual, a few I used Tv mode:tup:
I up or down my EC or edit the RAW file in Bibble pro.
