Hello, in our fourth part of this series we're going to continue discussing your DSLR's options. I know many equate this much like a computer. They feel you much learn everything at once! As a person who taught himself computers, please don't think of it that way. You learn the basics and then add to your knowledge as you go along. Remember learning is a lifetime endeavor. So here we go.
Auto exposure modes.
Your DSLR's fully automated setting is called program. In this setting, the camera's computer picks the aperture and exposure duration for you. More experienced shooters might select intelligent Auto or Auto ISO modes to control their image sensors light sensitivity ( low ISO such as 100-400 work well in bright conditions; high ISOs are best in dim ones). Note There is the adage the higher the ISO, the more noise your image will contain. That said the cameras are coming out now have excellent capabilities in low light conditions. And my thoughts have always been a little noise and get the image, or just skip it or not try; I will always go after the picture! Other modes include Aperture Priority when you require a particular aperture for the light conditions. But if your freezing action? Choose Shutter Priority. (Use this all the time to shoot aircraft with props!). And last, but not least Full Manual mode allows you complete control over exposure.
Next time Scene mode, White Balance, and Auto bracketing. Till then
Hi all, had another wonderful year at EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh Wisconsin. I have to give a shout out to the folks at EAA who plan and execute this very large venture. As well as the city and surrounding areas around Oshkosh. The setup which is huge with parking and camping areas surrounding still always flows very smoothly. Check in, bag checks if carrying in is all very seamless. Besides the planes of all types from warbirds to home kits which are of course my main focus of the show. You will find great education venues on how -to's and history throughout! If you never been here, or are thinking about it for next year. Be sure to download the EAA app on the iTunes store. It's updated every day and allows you to plan for the day. As it tends to get pretty warm this time of year, drink plenty of water, I also like to throw in a Gatorade during the day as well.
Besides the Folks at EAA, I'd like to give a shout out to the Folks that run the Quality Inn and Suites in Kimberly, WI. I've stayed there the last two years, they're clean well-appointed rooms, good parking, and breakfast in the morning that helps set you up for the day. With a pool/whirlpool if you want to relax at the end of the day. Being only about 20 minutes from EAA it works out great.
One last thing I'd like to mention is if like me your going there for photography. Plans what you want for ways you want to shoot. From static displays to ground to air shots. Remember your going to be lugging this all day, and there's allot of area's to cover. And not much shade. I learned the last year about this by Watching a presentation from Moose Peterson on the Kelby-One site. Thanks to Moose for the suggestions. I did use a Tour Classic | Hemp with optional staplettes. This like weight outfit could store the lenses I brought for statics which included a Nikon f3.5 AF-S 24-85mm zoom, and Tokina f4 17-35mm for static work. Then I carried my Nikon D4 with a Nikon 200-500mm f/5.6E VR. The bag has enough space for camera cards, blower, side straps for a couple water bottles, small iPhone tripod, and a go-pro camera.
Well. I hope that gives some insight if you plan on this fly-in or others around the country.
Till next time!
The B-25 series of Medium Bombers gained fame as the bomber used in the Doolittle raid. Sixteen B-25Bs led by then LT Colonel Jimmy Doolittle flew off the carrier USS Hornet and successfully bombed Tokyo.
This series of Bomber served in every theater of operations during World War Two. They were used as there main task, medium bombers, Antisubmarine, gunships, reconnaissance, refueling, and countless other rolls.
They could sustain an extreme amount of damage and keep flying even with one engine out and down to 145mph. My picture today is of Betty’s Dream, a B-25J owned currently by the “Texas Flying Legends Museum”.
This craft is truly a great representation of a pice of flying history. In this picture she is being chased down by a zero during a mock attack at EAA Air Venture this last July 2015.
Hello Folks, Lance here. Well this week I'm shooting up in Oshkosh, WI at the biggest Air Show that I'm aware of, EAA Air Venture. I'll be sharing some tips and tricks this week as to what to bring, planning your trip, etc. So be sure to check back, now I'm getting some breakfast and back to the show.
In The pic's, Flying Wing and F4U Corsair.
I'm a photographer who loves animal photography. Trying to capture that perfect moment is a passion of mine.
