Airshow Shooting Tips
Ok you experts. I'm heading to the EAA airshow in Oshkosh next week and hoping to improve upon last years effort. Couple things I learned last year from the forum is that I need to slow down my shutter speed for prop planes. So what's the recommended shutter speed? I'll be taking the following:
- Pentax 55 - 300 DA L
- Pentax 18 - 135 DA WR
- Sigma 50mm
- Sigma 10 - 20
I figure the 55 - 300 will primarily be used during the actual flight demonstrations and the 18 - 135 as a walk around. The other two for early morning shots when nobody is up. The Thunderbirds are going to be there so I'm hoping to get a nice sunrise picture with the planes.
Thoughts, tips, suggestions on shutter speed and focus tracking? I'm assuming spot is not recommended?
