A 'Mist'erious Stonehenge on the way to Yeovilton...

A couple of years ago I happened to be passing Stonehenge at sunrise on the way to Yeovilton and it was quite an awesome sight. Decided this year to actually be there overnight as the forecast was clear and humid, and I ended up taking shots for most of the night (most didn't quite work!) and after ...

Re: LM100J awesome display

Fully agree - I thought the A400M was a dynamic routine but the LM100J tops it.

The reduced display area at Farnborough has helped, in that the box is a lot smaller than the standard LM100J display routine. Plus the display pilot is about to retire - and is clearly planning to go out in style!

Same old faces having someone rock up early and then having ten of their mates stroll straight to the front later... Frustrating but what can be done really? This. So irritating. They need to put barriers in place to stop this shenanigans. Yup, it is damn annoying. Had a guy at Cosford who was tryi...

Re: Zoomer does Old Warden

Thanks for the positive comments chaps, much appreciated. Andy - there was a bit more cropping involved than I would like on a couple of these, so while the final results might look comparable to previous shows there were also a lot of throw aways. Richard - I think we both did OK, considering! Thou...

Re: Cakemeister at Shuttleworth Season Premiere

Great set there Richard (as to be expected). Looks like your lens workout was worth it.

I especially like No.4 - lovely scheme on that Moth, and I still haven't got a good shot of it myself!

Zoomer does Old Warden

Sorry, another OW post... I missed out on Old Warden last year, maybe regretting it now. Anyhow, I enjoyed last Sunday's show but definitely needed to crop more heavily than in years past, even using 500mm (on full frame). Tried to push down shutter speeds and generally pleased with results. Making ...

Re: Season Premiere Airshow Sunday 8 May 2016

I found aircraft altitude was more a problem than distance, both for viewing and photography. Let the photographer who doesn't crop their pix be the first to throw the stone at me - but while most aircraft were more distant, most people will just crop a bit more. I was shooting at quite slow shutter...

Cheers Tim. Yeah, atmosphere and the right look are what gets me happy. These guys (in fact most re-enactors I've had the pleasure of working with) are sticklers for perfection so you cant go far wrong with 'the look'.

French Foreign Legion BEP Impression

I occasionally do photoshoots with some re-enactment groups I know well. Last year I was asked by a good friend to take a few shots of his small group representing the French para forces in Indochina in the early 1950's. In case anyone else is into that sort of photography, I've just got around to e...
