"f/1.4 and be there"
20

In 2018 I spent many hours at Westonbirt, The UK's National Arboretum:

I used my Pentax K-1II and Pentax-D FA* 50mm F1.4 lens .
For fun, I used 1/2000th at f/1.4 for all 754 photos.

This is rather like the well-known expression "ƒ/8 and be there".
Strip-out technical complexity and concentrate on what matters; taking the photos.
(At an airshow I typically use f/8 as long as there is sufficient light).

Here are a few of the results; I down-sized the original DNGs to 75%.
