Planes of Fame January Living History Day – Focke-Wulf Fw 190

The local Air Museum holds a living history day each month where they bring out the planes along with people that might have flown them or worked on them. It’s a great benefit living so close to the air museum that I can just drive over and in some cases shoot from my backyard. As I am trying to improve my airplane photography I took this as an opportunity to work on shooting at a slow shutter speed and working on my panning. Needless to say my panning needs some work so that I can get some sharp photographs.

Photoshopped house?

One of the houses in our neighborhood had a fire a few months ago. The house was gutted by the fire and had to rebuilt from the inside. I was out on one of my walks and happened by and thought it was an interesting image. If you look at it looks like i have removed the roof with photoshop with how cleanly it has been removed and the angle I am taking the shots at. However that isn’t the case, they were just in the process of rebuilding the roof and lifting the eves back up with a crane.

Other shots from the airshow.

Happy with most of these, of course they could always be better and they will be at the next air show. Learned a lot shooting this time. Most of these were done with the Sony 70-400 lens on my a6300. Going to look at some of the other long lenses for my camera. I had to use the e to a mount adapter from Sony. All of it worked well there are some limitations, although those limitations could have been my own inexperience shooting planes in motion. Will know more the next time I shoot at an air show.
