The Dream of Air to Air

This is the one area that has the most questions and the biggest draw. Air to Air photography is truly a thrill ride as there is nothing quite like being up in one aircraft and photographing another one. The work that goes into this kind of photography is more of a ballet then just a […]

Working with the subject as it Flies by

Only half of the fun is spent on the ground, but the real thrill comes when that plane comes roaring overhead going hundreds of miles an hour and are gone as fast as they are seen. This is the time when you have to have good panning technique because those planes move by way to […]

Since this week marks the 70th anniversary of VE Day and with the number of airshows that are happening around the country, it seemed like a good time to write a little about different areas of aviation photography and how to approach certain scenarios.

The Howard 500

Making Pano’s in Adobe Camera Raw

With the launch last week of Lightroom CC there was also an update to Camera Raw 9.0. With this new update came the ability to merge images in ACR to create panos and HDR images. For those that have ever tried to make panos before, using ACR is so much nicer! It’s a very fast […]

A New Species For the Files

One of the great joys of working with wildlife is never knowing what might cross my path. Driving Back from Canyon Ferry Lake this past weekend I was busy watching the weather and the clouds in the fading afternoon light. You can check out my post from yesterday to see the great skies. As I […]
