How do you Level a Plane?

This seems to be one of the most frequently asked questions when it comes to static aircraft. How do you level the plane when composing? Do you use the wheels, the wings, the ground, the background or the horizon line? There are a number of different ways but what it really comes down to is […]

Kings College Chapel

You can’t go to England and not see some of the amazing architecture that the country has to offer. Much like when you come to the US and you want to visit all the National Parks. Well there are churches and chapels everywhere in England and to try to see them all, I imagine, would […]

The Cockpit Shot

You wouldn’t think this would be a hard photograph to get since all it is is a simple click while the aircraft is static on the ground. But believe it or not it is rather difficult. Basically there are two main reasons why, first is trust. The cockpit is a very personal space for the […]

The Little Camera Goes a Long Way

The British Fighters

You can’t beat photographing a Hurricane and a Spitfire in Britain!

The F6F Hellcat

I realize I haven’t done a true aviation weekly post in a while and this actually won’t be a true one either. I wanted to talk a little bit about the Hellcat today since, one, I haven’t yet and two, there is actually an important date that coincides with today and the history of the […]
