When to upgrade camera gear?

Oh boy one of the topics I really don’t like talking about. Until Now. Flash. I can honestly say that I am not a flash person. It’s just extra work and extra stuff to carry. However, I do love those shots that use non natural light properly. Well with the upgrade to the D4 came […]

When to Use Dx mode

This is something that has come up more and more often. There has always been a discussion on when is it the right time to crop a photograph. Some folks have not problem cropping an image in post, ithers out right refuse to. I was taught that you shouldn’t in post for two reasons. One […]

History Coming back to Life

One of the really cool things that Dad and I were able to photograph down at Dixie Wing was the restoration that was going on with their P-63 Kingcobra. This is by far one of the most unique designs that American Engineers came up with for a fighter plane during WWII. The P-63 was an […]

I often get asked how I come up with such interesting shots when it comes to my planes. Well it comes down to two things, symmetry and perspective. Now there are a bunch of other little details like light and background but lets just focus on the first two. The reason symmetry and perspective are […]

Photoshop World Precon

My favorite part of Photoshop World, photographically, is the day before all the learning begins. The Precon that takes place the Monday before the classes start houses some of the best advice while being able to practice it. Live action shoots are held among a number of different photographers and different fields of interest. Over […]

How do you get those great backgrounds

One of the questions that I often get is how I get those clean backgrounds? Well it’s kind of simple in that it’s not so simple. When I go to an airfield I watch how the planes land and takeoff and what the background looks like. I then go to the area where it’s the […]

The Little Planes

If you follow my blog then you know that I tend to work with warbirds whenever I can but I don’t always work with some of the smaller planes. I actually really like working with anything that has character and these biplanes have a lot of that. At one point biplanes were state of the […]
