B-17G Sentimental Journey Photo Mission

“What’s it like to shoot Air-to-Air at our Air2Air Workshop?” “Was you ass really hanging out?” “How much did you shoot with the D3x compared to the D3s?” “Can anybody shoot air-to-air?” These are just some of the questions I’ve received in the last week with all my aviation postings. This movie requires Flash Player 9 Well the Moose Cam was going the whole time during our flights and after nine hours of editing (I learning some more to produce a better video), I have a short that hopefully brings some of the excitement, thrill and heart pumping exhilaration this shot brought me!At the same time I hope to infect a few more and share some of what I’ve learned shooting air-to-air. Enjoy! 01.01.2013 Pages are in the process of being updated. In the meantime you can watch our videos on our YouTube Channel as well as all Videos are available on iTunes as...

Air2Air -day1pm

This movie requires Flash Player 9 There are NO words for the moment you first look out the back and you see a classic warbird pulling up behind you. I had that experience when I photographed the P-38 / F7F a month back and now again with the B-17. Seriously, I get lost in the moment and simply take it in, and then I comeback to earth and get to work. This is a workshop so teaching is what it’s all about. One thing we stress is when you first see the planes, make the money shots. Use a fast shutter speed to assure a sharp image and with those in the can, move one to more daring techniques. This movie requires Flash Player 9 This is still photography where light is everything. And even with that in mind, I make shots that aren’t the best light because you never know if all of a sudden the flight will come to an end. These are aircraft, machines and there...
