Sorry, been facing more pressing issues.

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.
