Hello again, sorry I’ve been away. It’s just that sometimes things come up that force you to take sometime away form the things that you love. It’s not that I haven’t been shooting, it’s just the time it takes to process the images to my satisfaction and then compose something worth your time and if I cannot give it my fullest attention, I will let it stew. With that said . . .
The one hundredth anniversary of Selfridge Air Nation Guard Base occurred this summer and I did take the day to watch the Thunderbirds perform there. In photographing subjects such as flying insects, birds and especially aircraft you are hoping for good weather conditions, a great position and finally target anticipation, or having a good idea your subject is coming from/going to. With photographing the Thunderbirds in their F-16’s you have to balance out a fast enough ISO to freeze the action (if that is what your goal is) is a high shutter speed along with a reasonable f-stop for a good depth of field. When everything comes together you get great shots with wonderful detail.
