Lincoln Page & Command Aire captured by Z6II / Z70-200f2.8
Cropping into an aircraft is kinda like cropping big game, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. Often when it doesn’t, I refer to that as an awkward crop. This is because when you cut into an airplane or big critter, you eliminate essential parts like tail or legs. In this particular shot taken last week at the WAAAM Fly-in, it works because of the smallest element in the frame, the biplane launching in the background. I saw it launching way to the left of the frame as I held the framing you see. A distance before it was where I wanted it in the frame, I started firing letting move further into the frame. I did this because it assured me of getting the shot I wanted. It’s a simple click celebrating old time flight.
