Since we are on the topic of photography and equipment, and IF it is not illegal to talk about here and NOT to far off the thread topic.
What are some of the equipment used?
What are your shooting aperture and speeds that you LIKE to shoot at and WHY?
I only have a Canon Rebel (Had in film days and when I shot sports for the local newspaper a EOS 1 and two EOS 620 bodies) with 100-300 f5.6, 28-55, 35-105.
When conditions permit I like shooting at a aperture priorty of f7-f9 with the long lense as that gives me a little bit more depth of field on focusing for the high speed passes, etc...........I do like to shut it down to 5.6 or so for that blurred background. Whatever ISO can get me to that is what I shoot at.
I like the f9 setting as that also gives me a decent shutter speed to blur the prop so the plane does not look like it is just sitting in mid air.
I am a ameture photographer, and would love to hear from all of you experts!
I also do very little optimizing of my jpeg pictures-reasons are I am old school and believe what I take is what I get, and I do not have a very good software package-some cases just dont have or take the time to mess with enhancing my photographs
If this is out of line for this thread please let me know and I will take it down!
