Air Show

This past weekend there was an air show at the local Air Force Base. I'd been looking forward to it all week, knowing that I'd be able practice taking different types of photos.

From this experience, I learned that planning what type of photos you want to take is crucial. I used up quite a bit of time tweaking the settings and even changing lenses more than I wanted to, because of the different scenarios we encountered.

Walking through one of the cargo planes, meant opening up the aperture, slowing down the shutter speed...Shortly afterwards, not thinking, and just clicking away, I took the next few photos (outdoors & super-sunny) with those same settings, and came away with WAY overexposed photos, which will not make it on the blog.

I did end up with some really cool photos though, and learned a few things about the history of some of these planes.
